The bed in the garden room was to small and there were several things in the room that needs also maintenance. But it is... More

I had a great stay. The owners were very welcoming and I felt comfortable and right at home. Since it was off season it was very relaxing and made my overall visit to Durban and South Africa amazing. The location is also very convenient to getting anywhere in the town.

The Durban view guest house is a place to be. To unwind. Relax and feel hospitable with Michelle and Johannes. I've really enjoyed the 3 days I came for training here. If you would like to be treated with comfort. This is the place to be.

The hosts are great, the b&b is beautiful, the jacuzzi is a big bonus and the breakfast is awesome. No negatives here! Everything is perfect, great local amenities if you just wanna chill out and the local gay bar isn't far :)

The location of this guest house is really confusing but it seems to be in a nice area! However we got lost try to find it, and then no one answered the door for 20 min when we arrived. Our hosts Dave and Llewelyn were away getting married in New Zealand, so there were stand-ins to greet us. The rooms... More
