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.
