    Excellent location, very comfortable stay with a very hospitable host. Would certainly return. A safe secure environment with a great view of Durban. I would certainly recommend this establishment to my colleagues.

    Lovely place to stay, rooms spacious, great breakfast, beautiful views of the harbour. The host was fantastic and accommodating. The only negative is that I am an avid runner and it did not feel safe to run from the guesthouse without a short travel.More
