  • Description
  • Facilities
The Knoll Guest House and Backpackers is situated at the gateway of the Midlands Meander close to Pietermaritzburg. Knoll Guest House offers travellers comfortable accommodation on their beautiful farm.

Set on a hill where it’s cool and airy in summer and mysterious and misty in winter, Hilton is home to hedgehogs, hobbits and the odd myth. Experience history and culture in the land of the Zulus as you gaze down into the valley and across the distant Drakensberg.

We offer a variety of accommodation options to suit all guests in peaceful surroundings. We also offer meals on request. All the rooms are tastefully decorated with stunning views over the forest and mountains.

Relax in our beautiful garden or go for a forest walk on the property. For the adventurous traveller, the area offers many different activities such as mountain biking, horse riding, canopy tours, fishing, golf and birdwatching.

We enjoyed our quick overnight stop at the Knoll and will definitely return for a longer stay to explore the area. Thank for the well appointed facilities and beautiful surroundings. See you soon.

WE stayed overnight in the library at the Knoll Guest House, which was absolutely fantastic!! stunning scenery and beautiful setting, the room was beautifully laid out and fitted!! I will definitely make sure we stop over there again!!

We were a group of 4 swimming the Midmar Mile this year. We found the facility very friendly, well maintained, and peaceful. We will not hesitate to use this guest house for our future Midmar stays.
