Gateside Guesthouse is in a beautiful setting in Hilton with a spectacular view. The staff are warm, welcoming and very helpful, providing an excellent service. Should I be required to travel to Pietermaritzburg again, I would not hesitate to check in at Gatehouse Guesthouse again.

Verified reviewexcellent

It was a very beautiful stay. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We arrived late around 23:00 when check in was closed, but the owner directed us on what to do and where to via WhatsApp which was very helpful. The place is beautiful with a view of the Hilton mountains and pine trees. Will definitely recommend to friends and family... As well as visit again. Thank you.
