Lovely big clean rooms, with an amazing private patio overlooking swimming pool and trees. We needed to be close to St Anne's hospital which is in the CBD,we were close enough but also far away enough to enjoy the suburb life.

After 24 hours transit we were warmly welcomed by our lovely host, Anne, who made us feel right at home. A comfortable place that was a great home base while in Pietermaritzberg. We slept well, had great breakfasts, and enjoyed our stay.

Have stayed at Tancredi a few times for work. Not the fanciest of places, but the staff are always friendly and the place is always clean. For a b&b it's perfect. The breakfast is also good. They even offer matabella.
