Positive Reviews

Delightful hosts

A large part of the charm of this B&B is down to the exceptional standard of service offered by the hosts. Guests appreciate how kind and attentive the hosts are and the friendly atmosphere in the B&B really allows them to feel at home here. The complimentary breakfast is tasty too and provides a great way to start the day.

Convenient location in Umhlanga

The B&B’s location is very convenient for guests’ requirements. It’s just a few minutes’ drive to the seafront where guests can spend time on the lovely sandy beach, walk along the Promenade or see some of the other attractions like the Pier and the Lighthouse. It’s also handily located for trips to Gateway Theatre of Shopping which is one of the biggest malls in the whole world.

Lovely accommodation

Guests love the modern look of the rooms and they report that the beds are really comfortable and offer a restful night’s sleep; they also like the amenities in the bathroom and how clean and tidy everywhere is kept by the housekeeping staff. Probably the best feature of the rooms is the private balconies which have brilliant views of the Indian Ocean. It’s a great place to spend time enjoying a cold drink.

Negative Reviews

A steep driveway

Only an issue for those with a vehicle and a minor one at that, but guests mention that they found the driveway a little challenging due to its steep nature.
