About Penryn

A touch of luxury at a reasonable price!

Penryn is a gracious old home, situated in central Dundee, close to all amenities and easily accessible.

It has been tastefully converted into a charming and comfortable B&B while carefully preserving its essential Victorian ambience.

It is set in a beautiful prize winning garden, with good security and electronically controlled access.

We offer a family flat, sleeping four, which has a TV Lounge and kitchen. This unit can be self-catering or bed and breakfast.

A further three en suite bedrooms are available, each with private entry. All rooms are tastefully decorated and are equipped with a DSTV bouquet, bar fridge, heater, electric blankets and coffee making facilities. All offer an attractive outlook onto a private patio with outdoor seating.

Dundee is the heart of the KZN battlefields district. The first shots of the Anglo-Boer War were fired on the town at the Battle of Talana.

Dundee boasts an excellent historical museum, as does Rorke’s Drift. The town has a picturesque 18-hole golf course and offers squash, tennis, bowls and fishing. For the more adventurous the nearby Buffalo River offers white water rafting and canoeing.

There is also a 4x4 trail for the off road enthusiasts. An hour and a half away is the NPB Ithala Game Reserve which has an abundance of bird life, as well as four of the big five.
