My husband and myself booked the honeymoon suite as it was our 30th anniversary. On arrival we had to wait for our room to be cleaned, but the staff was very accommodating offering us the air conditioned, beautifully furnished reception as well as refreshments. Our pool facing room was elegantly furnished with a French touch. The bed, leather couch, lovely...

We booked 2 double rooms for one night since we needed a place close to the airport. Upon arrival we were told that there was also a family room with a bid double bed and bunk bed. It worked really well for us and our kids. It also offered lots of space, privacy and a beautiful view. We were very...

We just loved this place. It was luxury at its best and the staff were wonderful. Would love to spend a week here. The rooms were tastefully decorated and every little detail thought out. The bathrooms were fabulous with a choice of a huge bath or a good shower. All toiletries were supplied. We were lucky enough to have ordered...

Such a beautiful setting. The grounds were immaculate, wonderful statutes and flowers complete with some monkeys. Cats were friendly when you showed interest but went about their business if you weren't. Room was exquisite with beautiful furnishings and all the extras associated with the elegance. Bed was blissful and I slept very well. Dinner and breakfast was perfect and very...

Five minutes from Durban Airport we booked (via an online agency) to avoid having a very early start to catch a plane to Johannesburg. We wish we had been able to stay longer. The Guest House is set in four acres of land is a colonial relic which should be preserved. The rooms are large spacious and airy, the owners...

What started as a last minute booking to save us from driving at night to our Safari at Zulu Nyala became the most amazing and charming introduction to South Africa that my mum and I could have possibly have experienced!! Why this isn't listed as a 5 Star B&B is completely beyond me!! THERE WERE MONKEYS DINING WITH US!!! I...

We chose De Charmoy for our first night in SA after arriving in the evening at King Shaka Airport as it is only minutes away. The recpetion was good, rooms were large with good bathrooms. Breakfast was OK. We did not pre-order dinner. As there is no permanent restaurant Priya suggested ordering take away at Nando's (arrived swiftly). Before our...

I stayed over at this guest house while on a business trip, it was the ideal location from the course I attended which was at Sibaya Casino. The place is so peaceful and its very beautiful. The rooms were so cosy and clean. I enjoyed staying over. The breakfast menu wasn't big but it was very tasty and we were...

I chose this hotel because I wanted to be in easy reach of King Shaka Airport for a very early check flight. Arriving in the evening it was difficulty to see the grounds and no sooner had I entered reception, than the receptionist whisked me out to direct me to drive car to room. The garden room felt isolated and...

Thank you for bringing these matters to our attention. We always appreciate all feedback. We have replaced the handle on the window and re-checked all rooms for any potential problems. All of our rooms have private entrances into the gardens and our Security Guard walks the perimeter during the night - he would have not switched off the lights [switch...

“I would definitely request a room in the converted old farmhouse again. However, if you prefer a more modern style (as some reviewers here seem to) then a room in one of the newer blocks might suit you better.”
