Hawks Rest is an upmarket establishment set in the leafy suburb of Gillitts in the western suburbs of Durban. Conveniently located near both the N3 freeway, and M13 highway , we are very easy to find and are nestled between Kloof, Hillcrest Winston Park and Everton.

We are in close proximity to all the private schools in the area, as well as the Kloof Country Club and Golf Course. Shopping malls, medical centres, a golf driving range.

For the athletes amongst you we are literally on the Comrades Marathon route , and every June some 12000 participants run past our front gate. We are also near Inanda Dam for those taking part in, or supporting the Dusi Canoe Marathon.

The Drakensberg mountains are two hours away, Durban?s beaches 20 minutes and Itala Game Resort half an hour away. For those visiting Durban on business, we are close to both the Westmead and Hammarsdale Industrial Parks with easy access to both.

Brian and Theresa offer the discerning business or leisure guest a quiet and private retreat in a warm and friendly environment.

From Durban International Airport to Hawks Rest Upon leaving the airport you will cross a bridge over the freeway with a traffic light at the far side. At these lights turn right and after about 100m there will be another set of traffic lights under a multi-level interchange. Keep in the left lane. The road continues straight to Durban and left to the North Coast and Pinetown. Take the left hand off-ramp which will say either Pinetown, North Coast or N2. You will then glide onto the N2 freeway (the one the original bridge crossed over). Travel for approximately 8km and see a large cement factory/ tower on your left. Carry on another 2km and you will go under a bridge some 40m above the freeway. The next off-ramp will say Queensburgh/Edwin Swales. Ignore this and continue straight for approximately 5km and you will see an overhead sign that will say North Coast/Durban/N3/Pinetown/Pietermaritzburg. Keep in the left lane as you need to head towards Pinetown/ Pietermaritzburg on what is known as the N3 freeway. Thereafter you can follow the directions attached, When approaching from Durban .
