We passed through Salt Rock on our way to the Drakensberge and stayed one night at the Petite Provence. It really felt like a bit of mediterranean France in Africa, a nice change. The rooms were small but nice, having a glass of wine on the porch at treat, and the breakfast very good.

This is a converted house with spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and modern en suite bedrooms. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and they keep the place spotless. The rooms were immaculate and tastefully furnished. The garden with its plunge pool is a good place to relax. There is a lounge area with music playing and an honesty bar and...

This booking has not been paid for, so the client did not loose any money. We are very sorry the Cottage was not to the clients taste however it has recently been renovated and is a Rustic Provence style as advertised on our booking website. We understand this is not to everyone's taste but the the client should pay attention...

The Petite Provence is a lovely B&B close to the main beach of Salt Rock. The walk to the beach takes about 3-5 minutes. We stayed here with 2 children. Originally we tried to book the garden cottage which has 2 bedrooms but it was already fully booked. The room (No. 4) we had now was very lovely with beautiful...

We stayed in a ground floor room with a mini kitchen - kitchen is useful for making of snacks & drinks rather than a full service kitchen, but a useful facility nevertheless. The bedroom had a french provincial theme - nicely done, had plenty of storage and a flat panel TV with the largest range of satellite channels I have...

Perfect for a family breakaway. Staff were brilliant. Everything else was clean, spacious and worked. Great value for money. It's also close to the main beaches in Salt Rock, which makes it ideal for families with small kids. One really nice touch is that they give you a beach umbrella to take to the beach which made the world of...

We found this B&B quite by chance and at the last minute by way of a quick Google search as I had forgotten to book us accommodation the night prior to flying out from Durban. Arriving at 6pm in the dark with only 2 hours notice we were met efficiently and shown to a delightful self catering cottage. Lovely decor,...

The place is well kept with classic french style. Our spacious room downstairs flowed out to the lovely garden. The room had its own little kitchenette so we good bring home meals instead of eating out every evening. Lovely queen size bed. Good HD TV with all DSTV channels. A full breakfast under the pergola is pleasant however the service...
