Bancroft B&B is in Hilton, in the forested, evergreen hills above Pietermaritzburg, the capital of KZN. Offering extremely comfortable, well appointed, luxury B&B suites, we can accommodate 6 people in a homely environment with a loved garden. The family suite has 2 bedrooms, the master bedroom with a kind size bed and other with twin beds, both share an en-suite bathroom which has a hand shower basin and toilet. This spacious suite is cool and can accommodate 4 persons, and looks out to the gardens at the front and the back of the house.

The double suite has one bedroom with twin beds, and the en-suite bathroom has a lovely large shower, toilet and basin. Facing the morning sunrise this suite has a pretty garden outlook

Both suites have DSTV, wireless internet, a hairdryer, a hospitality fridge, fans & a heater, and tea & coffee facilities.

A hearty breakfast is the highlight of the day. We serve fresh fruit juice with a choice of 5 cereals or hot oats. A fruit, yoghurt, honey and muesli platter then a fully English breakfast with eggs, sausage. Bacon, mushrooms and tomatoes, or any variation that takes your fancy. We do endeavour to cater for special needs and conferences. Then, of course there is toast and jams and bottomless tea and coffee.
