Gateside Guesthouse is set in the heart of the tranquil Hilton Village only 10 km from Pietermaritzburg. Luxury accommodation is offered, with scrumptious English breakfasts.

Rhett and his wife Phillipa have both lived in Africa all their lives, and have been married for 15 years. Initially based in Zimbabwe they moved to South Africa in 2002, driven by their passion for the Kwazulu-Natal Midlands area, which is commonly referred to as the Midlands Meander. One hour’s drive south gives you the warmth of the popular Durban coast boasting both north and south coasts which host some of the most beautiful beaches in Africa. To the north within easy reach is the splendour of the famous Drakensberg Mountains.

Rhett and Phillipa Baines welcome you into their home and hope that you will enjoy your stay. Self-catering or B and B stays available and discounted packages are offered for stays of four nights or longer. Whichever you choose you can be assured of quality home comforts.

This was our third visit to Gateside and as usual they didn't disappoint. We usually stay in the cottage but this time just the two of us we stayed in an upstairs room. The room was very spacious with a large bathroom with bath and shower and a small kitchenette. Very comfortable and the staff are very friendly. Will keep coming back.
