Positive Reviews

Good air-conditioning

With the lovely warm climate that Durban offers, guests were very pleased that the air-conditioning units performed well. They were able to come back to the rooms after a long day and cool down sufficiently before dinner.

Considerate owners

The guesthouse owners are kind, compassionate and flexible. If you would like to check in a little earlier than normal, then it won't be an issue as long as your room is ready, and you can count on a warm welcome with any additional information about the area readily available.

Pretty good breakfast

Guests did say they enjoyed the tasty breakfast each morning. They said it was filling and provided enough choices to suit most palettes.

Negative Reviews

Parking is an issue

There are insufficient remotes for all guests, so if you are not one of the first five visitors to arrive, then you will have to wait until you've attracted someone's attention before the parking garage is opened.

Attention to detail is needed

Guests found, amongst other things, a lack of towels in the rooms, insufficient coffee and tea, as well as only one or two cups available. The service, especially at breakfast time, is also slightly on the slow side.

Cleanliness should be improved

Bed sheets and towels were not considered to be well cleaned. Guests were disappointed with the overall hygiene of the rooms and felt that staff should pay more attention to cleaning thoroughly before they allow guests to check in.
