We chose this guesthouse because it was 7 minutes from Northwood school and 7 minutes from Kings Park Pool, the two venues where our sons were playing water polo in a tournament. It was perfect for us - and exceptional value! We had the self-catering cottage and had no complaints. It is bright, air-conditioned and clean. Conveniently located, with a...

Great experience tucked away in a safe neighborhood, was there for Indaba period 6-10 May 2016. Central to many attractions and malls. Though no official dinners one can liaise with management on whether dinner can be organized. Thanks Lia for all the assistance.

As a frequent traveler and visitor of guest houses, this is one of the few places that can proudly be called a Guest House. Lia and staff ensures a very high standard of accommodation and their friendliness contributes to a comfortable and homely stay. I can recommend them for business or pleasure-accommodation seekers!! Yes!!

We were down for Comrades. Spent 4 wonderful days in a charming, peaceful and relaxing place. Lia runs a tight ship, keeps the noise levels strictly under control and cooks delicious breakfasts. Our friends were in a self - catering unit which was stunning! Highly recommend tgis lovely place.

Staff and management welcoming and friendly. Lea in particular was exceptional. The unit was very clean and tidy. My family felt comfortable and did not complain. Close to amenities and major attractions in Durban and surrounds. Reasonable rate per night when compared to many other similar places. Better than certain hotels. Will definitely consider going back and accordingly recommend the...

My husband and I stayed at the Riverside for our 1 night in the Durban area. The owner was there to greet us, showed us around, and gave great pointers for seeing the city in one day. The room was comfortable and clean. At breakfast, the owner provided a tasty breakfast with all the fixings. We had a wonderful conversation...

Looks can be deceiving. Upon arriving at the guest house we had to stand around the gate for a while. Eventually the cleaner came to open the gate and give us the keys to the room. This was the 'check in', we had no idea where to pay the outstanding amount for our booking. This guest house looks like a...

It was a small paradise, clean and friendly staff including Lia herself. Will definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy their holiday. The kids are still talking about the trip down there more especially the Guest House. Keep it up guys.
