Room is big and comfortable, such lovely amenities on offer in the bathroom. Breakfast made to order. Would love to stay here again, highly recommend it to anyone going to Pietermaritzburg who wants...

There is in fact only one word needed for this B&B: perfect! Such a pitty that we could only stay here for one night. Ann is a wonderful host, the breakfast is amazing and the rooms are so nicely decorated!

Anne was a very welcoming host and ensured that our family enjoyed the stay. Boys enjoyed having their own room away from the folks and a scrumptious breakfast was enjoyed by all before we hit the road early in the morning. Thanks Anne and staff.

I can't recommend Tancredi B&B highly enough. The host, Ann, is incredible. While I understand that there is a main house and a secondary residence with rooms, I stayed in the main house. The room furnishings were immaculate, the bed comfortable, and the in-room tea service and toiletries always refreshed. Breakfasts were delicious, made to-order, and provided enough variation from...

We enjoyed our stay but our bed was so uncomfortable. We definitely think that the mattress needs to be replaced and less clutter in the room so you have more space. Otherwise it was very nice and Ann was very hospitable and very accommodating with all our special needs.

Hi Mario I am so grateful that you told me about the mattress as unless we are told we don't know. We are definitely going to replace the bed.
