We stayed over in the separate spacious freestanding unit for one night in order to attend an office function. This historical building has been well preserved and maintained and near all amenities. Honesty bar, nice pool, and excellent breakfast. Very friendly owners

The property is within 1.5 km of the School and some really nice restaurants and is thus ideally situated for this type of excursion.

I really enjoyed to stay here. It was nice to talk with the owners. The rooms were clean and tidy. The service was perfect. The only thing I liked least is the distance between the hotel and Durban Icc. This an excellent place to stay in Durban.

Greetings to the lumberjacks from Turkey, thanks for the great review and that you enjoyed your stay with us. Yes, the ICC is situated downtown where there is limited hotel accommodation and no guest houses, it is also a lot quieter in the suburbs. We look forward to hosting you again Regards Gary & Tosca
