    The staff, the room, the service, the host, the breakfast - excellent. Nothing to fault. Even the other guests were friendly. Perhaps it’s the atmosphere created. We like it so much, we stayed an extra night and hope to make an excuse to return.

    Late Victorian architecture with extremely tasteful decor and lush gardens make this guesthouse a truly idyllic setting in Durban's suburbia. However what makes it unique is the individual attention and hospitality offered by the staff, Goodman and Vincent, to guests.

    Wow what a great place to stay in Durban. Sadly we were only there for one night but the room, facilities and breakfast were outstanding. Goodman looked after us admirably, would I recommend it absolutely 100%.
