About @ The Sleeping Bao B&B

“@ The Sleeping Bao B&B was established over 14 years ago in the heart of Pietermaritzburg in one of the city's preeminent residential areas. The luxury accommodation is situated less than five minutes from the Johannesburg and Durban N3 highway with easy access to all local amenities, and is central to the numerous events hosted by the city. We are also a perfect springboard to explore the famous Midlands Meander and the surrounding inherent attractions, with the Indian Ocean and Drakensberg mountains in easy distance.

@ The Sleeping Bao is a beautiful face brick structure with a rich wood interior and a history spanning over 70 years. Situated in country-like settings, it is a mere three minutes from the city centre and 15 minutes from Pietermaritzburg Oribi Airport. There are six individually and elegantly, fully furnished rooms overlooking well established gardens. Rooms have air-conditioning and fans and are heated in winter, and each has a TV as well as tea and coffee-making facilities.

Guests have full access to the braai area around the pool. Lunches are available on request and are prepared individually with the freshest ingredients from the owners farm. Transfers to and from Durban International Airport and Pietermaritzburg Oribi Airport can be arranged, as can tours around the Midlands Meander. Guests have full electronic access to secure off-road parking. Laundry facilities are available daily.

Covid Safety Approved: Our B&B is prepared according to FEDHASA guidelines. Staff have been trained on COVID 19 preparedness, including: - mandatory PPE: - cleaning chemicals/disinfectants, - mandatory signage around the property

We had a very comfortable stay in this beautiful B&B. Colleen gave us a very friendly reception and made sure that we felt very welcome.

We enjoyed our stay at the Bao. The nice big garden and lots of birds, friendly staff and helpful manager. The visit to the Botanical garden was disappointing due to long neglect.
