Brahman Hills
Welcome to Brahman Hills, situated in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, in the foothills of the Drakensburg mountains. Having evolved from the old Windmills hotel and having undergone an extensive renovation, Brahman Hills makes for an authentic country escape.

Nestled amongst the rolling hills of the Midlands, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re far from the madding crowd. Yet, being just a stone’s throw away from the N3 highway, Brahman Hills is accessible and central to the famous Midlands Meander, which makes it the perfect destination for your dream wedding, conference or getaway.

With either hotel or self-catering accommodation available, along with a range of destination venues, including a restaurant, coffee bar, eventing venues seating up to 400 people, a cellar and underground bar, Brahman Hills is now a destination of choice. Discover all that we have to offer, from our abundant wildlife to our spectacular views, and for the guests who select the Self Catering Cottages on the Blue Crane Nature Reserve, the wildlife is literally on the doorstep.

The new Brahman Hills team has evolved with the property through a complete facelift in 2015, creating a country home away from home that promises real experiences, with real people in the tranquil surroundings.

Accommodation at Brahman Hills:
From the panoramic views to the peace and quiet that is the midlands, there’s no better place to escape than Brahman Hills.

During the summer months, cool off in the outdoor jacuzzi or take advantage of the longer days and enjoy an al fresco meal overlooking the hills on your own private deck.

Fully-equipped and serviced every day, we will take care of everything from making the beds to washing the dishes - we will even send your personal chef over so you can relax to your heart’s content. After all, we think you deserve a break every now and then, even if you are self-catering.
