About Assagay Country Guest House

Assagay Country Guest House is a 3 star SA Tourism graded establishment and a proud member of 1000 Hills Tourism, 1000 Hills Accommodation Network, KZN Tourism and the National Accommodation Association.

We are situated halfway between Durban and Pietermaritzburg, just off the N3 and M13 highways close to the Valley of 1000 Hills, Hillcrest, Shongweni, Summerveld, Pinetown and Hammarsdale. We are 20 minutes from Durban’s beaches, 30 minutes from Pietermaritzburg, 40 minutes from King Shaka Airport and the modern new Hillcrest Private Hospital is 1km away.

Our accommodation with either bed & breakfast or self-catering facilities is equally suitable for a relaxing family getaway or for the discerning business/sports person visiting the area.

Set in 4 acres of gardens with horses, fish pond and birds and with outstanding views over the Assagay Valley to relax you, your friendly hosts, Maudelene and Mark, invite you to a spacious and comfortable home away from home. The property is fully fenced with electric gate and safe covered parking.

We are a 3 minute drive to Hillcrest with its variety of modern shopping and entertainment centres, the Heritage Supper Theatre, or drive through Botha’s Hill with its pubs, a cultural Zulu Village with crocodile farm, restaurant and game park, the famous Comrades route and stunning views of the 1000 Hills Valley. For the equestrian sports enthusiasts we are 2 minutes from the famous Shongweni Polo/Show sportsgrounds. Go further on to Shongweni dam for fishing and boating and of course not to forget the many great golf courses close by.
