Positive Reviews

A top-notch team

Travellers are charmed by the owners of the property. The couple running the B&B are widely described as exceptionally kind, welcoming, and helpful, with a sincere interest in their guests' well-being and comfort. Guests also send many compliments to the chef on their cooked-to-order breakfasts. Their housekeeping staff also receive much praise for their cheerful attitude and attention to detail. Drivers appreciate that the security guard for the parking lot is attentive and approachable as well.

A quiet location, near the beach

Guests generally like the quiet, largely residential neighbourhood in which the hotel is located, nevertheless noting that the beach and a lively bunch of restaurants are within a comfortable walking distance. The Gateway Theatre of Shopping is also within a short drive, and it's easy to access the main highways for commuting to downtown Durban, which takes about 20 minutes.

Homey guest rooms with private outdoor spaces

Most guests are well pleased with the accommodations, and often remark on thoughtful and homey touches such as the honesty bar and well stocked cupboards. Self-catering guests love having a portable braai(BBQ) for dining out on the patio which adjoins each guest room, surrounded by the gardens and steps from the nice pool.

Negative Reviews

Parking is a little tight

Guests express frustration with the parking lot here, finding it hard to park larger vehicles in what they say is a pretty small lot.
