Overview

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 historical 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. 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 bird watching.
The accommodation facilities are scattered over the property and are freestanding.
