Given some of the previous reviews I had read, the hotel turned out to be better than expected. The availability of a dedicated car park with security staff was appreciated. The room was spacious and clean and appeared to have been recently renovated. Since I needed to work while I was in Pietermaritzburg, not having internet in the hotel room, only in the lobby, was inconvenient. The internet in the lobby was flaky and slow.

We were going to stay elsewhere but, having been here for 4 nights earlier, we chose to have another night here. We were welcomed warmly by Heather and her staff. It felt like coming home. This is such a delightful change to feeling processed in a modern hotel.
If we are in Pietermaritzburg area we will stay here again. Food at breakfast is plentiful and delicious, and the stir-fried vegetables with cashew nuts is a wonderful evening main course. Well done Chef Dylan.
My husband and i spent a couple of days at tala in the beginning of our relationship and had a great time. We live in Australia now and it's expensive to send presents all the time so i thought I would Get my parents a weekend away as a combined Mother's Day / birthday present! My parents absolutely loved it and could not stop raving about it! They said everything was amazing and would recommend it :)
Thatchings is a very pleasent guest house to stay during a visit to the Natal Midlands Meander.
It is the 2nd time we go to this wonderful region with amazing landscapes, artisan and craft shops, a beer factory and many other nice things. A small paradise.
PS Yes you can find zebras around the guest house.
