About Gateside Guesthouse

Situated in peaceful Hilton village, Gateside Guesthouse is 10 km’s from Pietermaritzburg’s city centre and set in a quiet cul-de-sac with magnificent views of pastures, dam and our local Table Mountain. We are at the entrance to the Midlands Meander, close to the private schools of Hilton College and St Anne’s and ten minutes’ drive from Howick. The guesthouse makes an ideal stopover for holidaymaker’s en route to the splendid Drakensberg Mountains or Durban’s beautiful beaches, as we are midway between these two major tourist attractions.


The self-contained accommodation overlooks the spacious garden, large saltwater pool & country views. There are two family units (sleeping up to 4 persons) and 2 double rooms. These are adjoining and have the advantage of converting to a family unit via an inter-leading door if required.

Tiny Gateside:
This is a charming family cottage. The main bedroom has a queen bed & the smaller children’s bedroom has 2 single beds. It contains a tastefully furnished sitting room with a traditional Victorian fireplace leading through to the dining / kitchenette area.

Bedrooms come with panel heaters & beds have electric blankets for any chilly evenings.
