About Us

Location, Location, Location

Fountains B&B opened its doors early in 2009, excited to join a family of busy establishments in the Natal Midlands. We love all the guests that stay at our B&B and enjoy the diversity of people that come through our doors. Every day has brought a new experience. We offer value for money in a professionally run business that gives personal service to all guests to suit their needs. Staying in Pietermaritzburg, now the CYCLING CAPITAL of AFRICA as well as the the BUSINESS CENTRE of the Midlands region and the EVENTS CITY, brings World Cup MTB events, and world renowned participants for many international events. Teams and participants regularly return to Fountains for the ‘home from home’ experience they are given.

We are fortunate to have an IDEAL LOCATION in the northern suburb of Montrose. We are one of the few B&B’s within walking distance of the world class Mountain Bike trail at the Cascades Mountain Bike Park, as well as a state of the art Virgin Active Gym, and a growing shopping centre, Cascades, with restaurants, shops and banks, recently upgraded with new extensions and better facilities like Woollies Food and Coffee Shop, and Coffeeberry Café staying open till 21:00 pm for foodies.

Fountains B&B is CENTRALLY  placed so that guests are able to reach all amenities that call them to our City. Pietermaritzburg is situated between Durban and Johannesburg and the Midlands Meander is a mere 20 minutes away with many activities and places to visit for the whole family. The beautiful Drakensberg is only an hour away



Fountains is well on its way to ‘GOING GREEN’. We make our own organic COMPOST with house and garden waste. We have a SHREDDER to shred bigger garden waste to be used as a MULCH on the garden, to retain moisture and feed plants. We RECYCLE all plastic, paper, tin and glass. All cottages have SOLAR WATER GEYSERS to save electricity and ensure guests always have hot water during load shedding. We use energy saving LED LIGHTING and water saving SHOWER HEADS.

RAIN WATER is stored in tanks and filtered for our use when there is a shortage or break in water supply.

We encourage guests to save by turning off lights, TV and Aircon when leaving their rooms. So watch the progress!!


Fountains now runs on SOLAR POWER so no more power outages for our guests when Eskom is down!
A BIG step towards our GOING GREEN.

We are also WATER WISE. We have recently changed our whole garden to indigenous, WATER WISE plants, using less water from our WATER TANKS.
This is also attracting more birds, butterflies and bees.

RAIN WATER is stored in tanks and filtered for our use when there is a shortage or break in water supply.
