The glorious summer holidays and the Christmas Season are just around the corner – so now is the time to plan for somewhere fabulous to stay.

1000 Hills B&B Association
“We are so excited to be welcoming visitors to the 1000 Hills!” enthuses Jane Candow, chairperson of 1000 Hills B&B Association, and 1000 Hills Community Tourism Organisation board member.
“We are ready for you! After the long lockdown which has denied us holidays and getaways for over a year, our visitors are enthusiastic to be out and travelling, and we are delighted to be able to welcome both foreign and domestic tourists.” Our doors are open!!
1000 Hills B&B Association is a collective of a dozen or so accredited B&B’s who network closely together – all situated in the Kloof / Hillcrest / Botha’s Hill area. Their website is designed to process and send your request to all of the members so this saves on having to contact each establishment separately for a quote. Only members that have availability will respond to you.
“All our members are accredited, legal and accountable – so by contacting the association you can be confident that certain standards will be met and if not there is one central body to approach if there are any issues.”
It is a super efficient service which benefits all concerned,” said Candow. “We understand that everyone has different requirements – from a luxurious honeymoon suite with all the trimmings, to a budget-friendly backpackers, to a functional family cottage or a cosy place for mates to hang out together, the Association prides itself in catering for pretty much the whole spectrum.”
1000 Hills B&B Association work closely with 1000 Hills CTO – both of whom have active websites with different accommodation options – which jointly account for at least 60 registered, compliant and accredited venue options in 1000 Hills area.
“We are mindful as always that as we recover from Covid, time is precious, and people are on a strict budget – so we are really working hard at making our options and destinations as impactful and budget-wise as possible,”
“Where we have the advantage is in our geography. We are suitably equidistant between major destinations, and close to strategic freeways, which allows our visitors to access a variety of destination and attraction options very easily – mostly within less than an hour’s drive. Over and above what we have to offer in our area, one can visit the Midlands for a gentle meander; one can visit the beaches at uMhlanga or Scottburgh; one can head to the majestic Berg; or spend a day at the magnificent Tala reserve – all a short drive away thus making day trips fun and do-able.”
“And of course we have heaps to offer right here on our doorstep: great food options; outdoor activities (such as putt-putt, golf, hiking, biking, horse riding, quad biking ); galleries and cultural attractions; the great outdoors; animal-themed parks (such as PheZulu and Animal Farm) and a zillion retail options to make Christmas shopping a breeze!” Something for the whole family
“We sincerely look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful Hills – all 1000 of them. Stay for a night, a weekend, a fortnight or longer … we will find you great things to do, see and experience. You deserve it!”
