I definitely recommend this B & B to anyone. If you are looking for the definition of friendly, this is where you will find it. Dieter & Ola were very accommodating and made us feel like we are family. Thank you for a lovely stay - 10/11/2016

It is home away from home. The host made our stay very comfortable, the house is neat and beautiful, peaceful surroundings. A great place to go for some peace and quiet, anmd it is also great for family vacation. The bead and breakfast is not too far from the beach, and yet not too close to the noise in town....

The couple that took care us, were wonderfully accommodating and very warm. It is definitely somewhere we will go back to when in Durban. The room was clean and well maintained and its modern yet african charm seamlessly blended together. Wish we had more time to try out the very inviting pool. Hope Dieter and Ola visit us in England...

What fantastic hosts Dieter and Ulla are! I am a regular business traveller, and each year spend many weeks away from home. As a result, I stay in many B&B's, Lodges and Guest Houses throughout South Africa. I recently had the honour of spending two weeks at Hilltop-Durban, and cannot recommend it highly enough! Comfortable and clean rooms, wonderful breakfasts...

We recently spend hubby's birthday weekend with Ulla and Dieter at this cosy B&B, and couldn't have been happier with our choice! The room was spacious and well appointed, and the bathroom a dream! The garden was a sight to behold - lush, green and inviting - and the view from atop the hill refreshing. We were especially thrilled to...

I stayed at this inn during the group phases of the World Cup. It was a wonderful experience. The rooms were clean and service was of the highest quality. It is a family run inn and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who like to see the real Durban without paying over the odds.

I came down to South Africa to do some surfing and get some sun. Not only did I get all of that but thanks to all the kind advice given by my hosts I got so much more I most certainly would have missed. Dieter took and interest to my sporting needs and hooked me up with the locals –...
