Stay At Our Stylish B&B In The Heart of Pietermaritzburg

You will feel at home when you visit us at Tancredi Guest House. From our friendly welcome when you arrive, through to the extra little touches we add, we want you to feel relaxed and part of the family.

COVID-19: We are Open

We have been hard at work, preparing for your arrival. Safety protocols have been put in place. Extra cleaning procedures and physical distancing rules have been implemented. Please feel free to contact us if you have any concerns.

Tancredi is a gracious Victorian house that has been updated with care. Original wooden floorboards, old-world balconies and spacious rooms take you back in time. Six bedrooms are tastefully decorated with modern amenities, such as wi-fi.

Enjoy down-time on our stoep. Chilled beer. Glass of wine. View of the lovely garden, pool and braai area. Slowly unwind.

We’re easily placed for business or attending events in Maritzburg.

Pietermaritzburg is conveniently located near the main N3 highway in KwaZulu-Natal.

Tancredi is nestled in the quaint suburb of Scottsville, slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet close to the town centre.

But the part that guests really look forward to are our generous breakfasts…

They’re included in the price and are individually prepared for each guest.

B&B from R490 per person sharing

Travelers often struggle with:

A noisy environment

Poor connectivity to family and friends

Rooms that don’t feel clean enough

We don’t want that for you!
