The Crafty Coal Stove

Hungry? Need a place to stay over? We have you covered!

About Us

Old school. That is how we do things. No new fashioned cooking, we do it like Granny would remember her folks used to. Everything is prepared as fresh as possible using real fire breathing coal stoves for our cooking and baking.

We’re a local, independent business. Situated in Scottsville, a suburb of Pietermaritzburg South Africa, we are ideally close to the local airport and town is a hop skip and jump away. Fancy a trip to the beach? Only 50 miles (80km) and you are there.


Our Services

We offer a wonderful home cooked dinner every night. No two nights have the same food repeated. See our menu [https://wordpress.com/block-editor/page/craftycoalstove.com/116 ]of the week for what is available. Please note that your order for dinner must reach us before noon.

Should you be staying with us, you have a spacious attic at your disposal with a lovely view on our historic university. The attic has its own separate entrance, is semi self catering, but breakfast is included. The bedroom is en-suite and has a double and a single bed, however we can easily cater for more guests.

Amenities include: Air conditioning, Wi-Fi, television (Netflix), carport, daily cleaning, laundry on request. Additional charges will apply to: Dinner (please inform us before noon if you want a dinner); ferry to and from the airport.
