"It was a big house for our self. You can cook, do the laundry by yourself.
And you get breakfast in the morning by your house at a serving plate, so you can eat in bed if you want.
Al you want to know is in the book, WiFi, supermarket, shopping, restaurants."

"I recently had the most relaxing and comfortable 4 night stay at Lincoln Cottages to celebrate my 30th birthday. From the moment we arrived been were welcomed with smiles from Monica and her team, their cleanliness standards are amazing as the staff kept the place spotless and my family and I really enjoyed the serene environment and not to mention the scrumptious breakfast. I will definitely be returning to this slice of heaven soon."

Family friendly accommodation, perfectly placed from the Durban beachfront.
The general set up and flow of the chalet. The garden and play corner for the kids. A huge bonus was that breakfast was brought to the room. Also the booking in and arrangements were manged over the phone, there was no need to meet unnecessarily.

"Good Day All,

Hope you and all your people are well.

I just want to “THANK YOU” so much for the lovely time we all had during last weekend staying at Lincoln Cottages.
Since we arrived on Thursday morning, and left on Sunday morning, we just had the best service ever really.
We definitely will come back there again for a second holiday, this time longer.

Thank you for all the help you gave me with my booking of our rooms/place, all the emails, and phone calls, just to keep your customer happy.
The cottage was so beautiful, and so clean, and the space was so big, just right for all of us to move, no one wanted to go home on Sunday.
Everything was so nice, the gardens, and the swimming pool was a bonus, my family loved it.

Your food was really nice, everybody enjoyed the breakfast every morning, and juice, thank you for that.
Please tell all your people there who are working for you and cleaned our cottage, we say THANK YOU for everything.
They all were so friendly to us, and so helpful, never complained if we ask them something, they were awesome people really.
Especially the lady who took the cottage keys the morning we left, I can’t remember her name, but she was awesome, always friendly and ready to help with anything.

Thank you for everything

Kind Regards

Antonette Viljoen" - April 2017

"I would definitely recommend Lincoln cottages to anyone who wants a peaceful, affordable and comfortable holiday, a home away from home. The setup is absolutely lovely, love the decor especially the kitchen. It's private and very cosy. Close to all amenities. Staff is very friendly as well as the owners. If u have children there is a jungle gym on the premises. It is safe n u have ur own parking. My fiance n I really enjoyed our holiday at Lincoln cottages" - 2016

"I had a lovely stay at Lincoln Cottages. Ken, Monica and Dom were amazing hosts and took care of every single detail to make my stay as nice and convenient as possible. The passion and personal commitment that they put in to create a welcoming atmosphere is truely outstanding, I hadn't experienced this at any other place I stayed at before. The cottage I stayed in (Backsberg) was super cozy, I loved the covered terrace which allowed me to work outside and get a fresh breeze while working. Thanks so much guys, and hopefully see you again!” 24/03/16

"My Family had been with Lincoln Cottages on and off for about two years. Had we not been having the kind of service we look forward to, we would not have been coming back again, and again. Services are good. The ambient is great. We always feel at home. It is highly recommended" 16/01/16

“The little extras like date bread and croissants were such a lovely touch in the mornings.” 9/6/16

- Leigh Roos


We arrived late at the cottage and were met by a friendly host who showed us to our cottage even assisting my friend with her disability down the stairs. The rooms were tastefully decorated with coffee, tea etc at hand and all the normal things you would find at home including DSTV.
Breakfast was healthy and very filling with the table groaning with homemade food by the hostess washed down with a pot of freshly brewed coffee.
Thank you for making our stay restful and for all the little extras plus the warm yet professional service" 22/12/15

"I had a wonderful time and the service was perfect and more. You really went out of your way to assist and accommodate . Thank you for even driving me to the nearest petrol station seeing that my car was empty and I don't know the area. What more can a person expect than the extra mile given with a smile" - 13 July 2016

"Hosts were very friendly and took care of everything. Our stay was split into two due to other travel and we were in an upgraded room for the second half - very much appreciated. Both rooms were very comfortable - beds were good, didn't have any problems with noise. Laundry service was very convenient. Will happily stay there again next time we're in town" 23/03/16

Property is well secured with remote controlled gates. They have a cleaner daily - who was also very friendly and warm hearted. Made us feel at home. The property is very child friendly too - excellent for all visitor types. Very friendly, supportive and warm hosts. When the electricity went off, the hosts did provide with a braai stand, a gas cooker, lamps and few candles - at no cost to us. Residence is not far from local shopping malls as well as fuel stations.

"Really enjoyed my stay at Lincoln Cottages - the best and most affordable accommodation in Pietermaritzburg by far! I also really loved the virtual tour! It was a great way for me to see everything about where I was going to stay! Well done!"

"A quiet location. Within easy reach of the Malls. Accommodation comfortable. Kitchen well equipped. People who run this establishment very friendly and helpful. I would stay there again. For the nature lover - plenty of birds visiting the garden"

- Mrs Legassick


Very Professional. Private. Good safe location. Very clean. Excellent Value for money.

I hate using cliches, like the one people write into guest books after a congenial stay somewhere - you know the one that always says, `home from home’ but ..well....that’s exactly how it felt. As it happened, I am glad that Oxford University Press booked me in on the `dinner, bed and breakfast ‘ basis because I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with you whilst enjoying really excellent food. (Take a bow, Monica – you’re a superb cook). The conversation was stimulating, the ambiance great and I can only apologise for the fact that I imbibed so much of your sherry. (Would you like a welcoming glass of sherry?)

This newly refurbished cottage was a home away from home. We enjoyed our stay there and service provided was excellent. Its excellent location close to the N3, Hayfields, Golden Horse Casino, Midlands Liberty Mall made this cottage excellent value. Ken and Monica who run the place should be proud of themselves and hope they continue to provide the excellent services they do. Looking forward to our next stay.

- Mr K Govender


We found Lincoln Cottages to provide exactly what we needed in a nearly 2 week stay in Pietermaritzburg. Comfortable beds, refreshing pool, beautiful gardens, attentive and excellent service. Kitchen is very well-appointed, internet is consistent and fast. Good place for quiet study.

"My son, daughter and I stayed in the Chateau cottage. It was tastefully furnished and sparkling clean. The special anti insect linen really did keep the mosquitoes away. We had a lovely little patio leading onto a well kept, neat garden. Staff were very friendly and our continental breakfast was delicious. Well done Lincoln cottages ! God Bless you" 24/11/15
