Only 10 minutes from the city centre, Ascot Inn is your perfect home-from-home whilst visiting Pietermaritzburg. You’ll receive a warm welcome backed up by friendly efficient service and comfortable accommodation.

All Rooms-en-suite are available to cater for differing needs and tastes, from corporate individuals and groups, to couples and families. Our rooms are all situated in beautifully landscaped gardens. Our dining room and bar facility, “Gallop Inn Pub & Grill”, serves delicious Buffet style dinners and the horseshoe shaped bar is renowned for its friendly atmosphere. In the morning the atmosphere changes with sunlight streaming through the windows and the lovely aroma of fresh coffee and breakfast in the air.

We offer WiFi connection free of charge to our guests in and around the Gallop Inn. Our guests are never left in the dark during power outages as we have a generator that keeps the darkness at bay.


Our charming rooms are converted racehorse stables, which, in their day, stabled many legendary racehorses competing at the neighboring Scottsville Race Course.

These Units boast upmarket facilities – all en-suite, hot and cold air conditioning, secure parking as well as 14 DSTV Channels. They still, however, retain a hint of their horse-racing heritage. Rooms are also available for disabled persons.

All rooms are surrounded by indigenous gardens which have “nooks and crannies” to explore as well as benches next to ponds where you can sit, relax and meditate.

There is also a swimming pool with covered and open braai facilities which blend into the surroundings.
