Quiet, comfortable, clean & superb!

Everything was simply perfect. The property is perfectly located, the staff are extremely helpful and attentive, and the owner is a person who takes pride in her product & services. I couldn't ask for anything more in a B&B/Guest House!

We could not get better value for money. All in all a superb set-up and very cooperating people.

The courtesy help and support from Carol, the owner, was superb. Excellent breakfast and excellent value for money.

Less than expected

Breakfast was enjoyable
There was no/very little water in the evening and morning after, took forever to run bathwater, and the water that did eventually come out the tap was not really hot. There was a lot of dust on the furniture in the bedroom.

Great value, definitely worth a visit

Friendly staff, very clean, fairly priced bar fridge... Everything!
Nothing- shower didn't have the best pressure but nothing major

Nice room but uncooperative manager

The room, the bathroom, the housekeeper (Meisie) was very kind and helpful
The manager responsable for taking payment was extremely annoying, calling us several times before our arrival and even bothered us while we were having our breakfast. She was uncleared on how works and this was our main issue as she bothered us about the payment from the booking online till our checkout.

Tranquility on a busy circle

Large bedrooms super comfortable king-size bed. Complimentary Sherry decanter on desk a lovely old world gesture, delicious breakfast with personal attention from Carol.
brighter lighting in room for work purposes. Hate lace curtains, to old world.

A great experience

I liked the personal touch to the whole experience, especially as a solo traveller I was made to feel very welcome, and nothing was too much for the staff.

Awesome spot

The staff was friendly and accommodating. Our room was extremely clean. The food was delicious
The A/C did not work properly. The water pressure in the shower was weak. These small negatives didn't detract from the great service

Comfortable stay as always!

Carol is lovely. Her staff are friendly. Breakfast is lovely. It is safe and conveniently located. I stay here every time I am in Durban and will continue to stay here.
I stay here every time I visit Durban and will continue to stay here. I just felt the room was not as clean as usual. The floor might not have been vacuumed or swept? as I could feel things on the floor when I walked around bare foot and the floor of the shower looked like it hadn't been cleaned as their was dirt lying around as the water started to fill up the shower. Not big things but just not the same attention to the rooms as normal.

Overall everything was on point!

Helpful host. Gave us a lift to the stadium and was good giving information about Durban. We can recommend the restaurant Jack Salmon nearby.

The location was beautiful and we had our own private entry...

The location was beautiful and we had our own private entry into the lodge. I loved that privacy.
The rooms were not cleaned well, which was a big disappointment.
