Lovely place, the family room was spacious and worked well for us. The manager was extremely helpful and friendly. The cleaning in the room lacked a little, but this was overshadowed by the rest. We had a great time, I would recommend this more as a business hotel due to proximity to the beach.

It was incredible. Immaculately clean and immaculately decorated - it was pure luxury. Three aircon units meant the room(s) were nice and cool. The communal...

Awesome guest house! The service from all staff was amazing! I will always stay at this guest house when I am in Durban for business! I would suggest that the owners look into upgrading the WIFI connection. The connection in the room was very weak and was not that stable. Otherwise the overall experience was great!

Exceptional service offered in an upmarket guest house. Each touch point was beyond superior expectations - from booking, to signing in, the quality of the furnishings, excellent wifi, honesty bar and full breakfast that was included. Highly recommended and I will be back for sure!!!

This boutique guest house is very nicely furnished, spotlessly clean, with spacious bedrooms and comfortable lounge with honesty bar. Breakfast is somewhat disappointing as far as the cold offerings go, also no breakfast pastries such as croissants and the coffee is mediocre. However, the cooked breakfast was always hot, but you are limited as to what you can choose. Our...

The service was friendly and the room was nicely equipped but it was lacking on the finer detail. The rail in the bath was loose which was a bit of a concern to use to get out of the bath. It was also a bit disappointing to come home at 2pm to a room that was not yet made up...
