Description

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.

                                      What a surprise! Best backpackers I have ever seen.  Everything so clean and neat; more than I expected. Thank you.

                                      16 February 2015

                                      Enjoyed a comfortable night at The Knoll.  The room was well appointed and everything worked.  Rudi went the extra mile to ensure our short stay was relaxing.  Thank you

                                      09 January 2015

                                      We unfortunately had to cut our stay at The Knoll short, but I thoroughly enjoyed the farm. Rudi made us feel welcome right from the start and our son enjoyed playing with the dogs immensely. The Hilton area is absolutely beautiful and well worth the visit. Thank you for a lovely stay!

                                      08 December 2014

                                      Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Although basic, it had all the amenities we were looking for and the photo opportunities were amazing. Just adored the dogs, and will definitely go back again with some more exchange students.

                                      15 September 2014

                                      We had a wonderfull stay, thank you.
