About Brackens Guest House

Brackens Guest House offers warm hospitality in the heart of Hillcrest. Situated in the one of the healthiest climates in the world, Hillcrest has evolved from the country retreat of the discerning Durban family to the most desirable country retreat for tourists and business travellers in KwaZulu-Natal.

At the Brackens, the well-appointed, spacious rooms and king-size beds are individually styled to provide comfort in relaxing surroundings. Unwind by relaxing around the pool, strolling through the garden, or taking a quiet siesta under the wild fig tree.

                              We enjoyed our stay, we made a special request via email to freshnup for a wedding that we had to attend on Saturday, we arrived at 8h00 and they allowed us to prepare for a wedding, the place is so peaceful. The owner also acknowledged our behavior before we left on Monday morning

                              Good breakfast and friendly service but accommodation needed a little TLC.
