Ashtonville Terraces Guesthouse


Ashtonville Terraces promises to offer all those who visit a warm, friendly welcome and a comfortable stay in an environment that can be described as a combination of Victoriana and Afro-centricity. With all 6 ensuite rooms reflecting the diverse colours of this beautiful country plus lush gardens and pool for guests enjoyment, Ashtonville Terraces offers the perfect place for a country getaway or just a cosy stop-over.

The town of Estcourt nestled amongst the rolling foothill of the Drakensberg World Heritage site, 2 hours from Durban and 3.5 hours from Johannesburg, finds itself well situated at the apex of 3 major tourist destinations; the Drakensberg Experience, the Battle Fields Route and the Midland Meander, thus offering visitors an abundance of historical, cultural and natural places to explore.
