Positive Reviews

Well-equipped and comfortable accommodations

Whether it was just a standard room or the family cottage, all of the accommodations were routinely commended by previous guests. Typically, the rooms were said to be well-appointed and comfortable, and that the hygiene levels were at a high standard.

Wonderful service provided

Nearly all recent visitors only had positive things to say about the guest house's staff members. The customer service was usually defined as exceptionally helpful and courteous overall.

Great Wi-Fi and secure parking

The accommodation's free Wi-Fi and parking facilities have both been well-received by former guests. The Wi-Fi was considered fast and reliable, while the on-site parking has been described as secure with plenty of spaces available.

Negative Reviews

Location far from points of interest

Although it is in a purportedly peaceful area, the guest house's location was judged to be one of its weakest aspects by previous visitors. With Durban city centre some 15 minutes away by car, the property is not particularly close to any major points of interest.

Breakfast not an option

It has been pointed out by former guests that the accommodation does not offer a breakfast option at present. This problem is further compounded by the lack of dining establishments in the immediate vicinity of the property.

Pool not always in the best condition

Whilst fine in the large majority of cases, a notable amount of past visitors were critical about the guest house's outdoor swimming pool. For those that had an issue, the pool was said to not be in the most pristine condition in terms of cleanliness.
