Kings Guest House is perfectly located in Westville, close to the N3 & Pavilion. The room was huge & comfortable with an ice cold aircon for those sticky summer nights. I had DB&B and both meals were substantial & delicious.
I will definitely be back!

I spent 6 nights at the Kings Guest House, I have traveled a lot and been to a lot of places good and bad. Kings takes the cake. Rooms are massive with cleaner than clean linen coffee, hot choc and new fully functional shower/ablution facilities.
As if this wasn't enough every day me and my colleague were given the BEST breakfast I have ever had from eggs to minute steak to croissants to cereals to fresh coffee. And the best part is the owners serve you and leave you in tranquil peace.
I wont stay ANYWHERE else in Durban.
Well don Raymond and Cornellia!

Kings Guest House in Westville (Durban, South Africa) is a comfortable, secure place to stay and ideally situated for someone who needs to be at UKZN on a regular basis. It is owned and operated by Raymond and Cornelia Horner whose unobtrusive hospitality, attention to detail, and magnificent cooking are faultless. Angel and Agnes keep everything spick-and-span under Cornelia's watchful eye, Q keeps the place punctual, K & D make sure everyone is on their toes and entertained, while Lulu provides doggy greetings and farewells between naps! Thank you Cornelia and Raymond for your part in a really enjoyable month in your excellent GUEST HOUSE in Durban.

Wow, this property is located in very calm area yet close to all areas of intertainment and shops. We felt secured. The service and helpful information from owners made it very easy to find places of interest. Breakfast and rooms were excellent. We never ran or hide anything from owners, we felt we are all guests. Thank you very much Raymong and Cornelia, see you soon!

Two words can best describe our stay at the Kings Guest House... Absolutely Brilliant!

Honestly. We couldn't fault anything. My wife and I stayed there for nearly 3 weeks in December and, from the minute we arrived, we were treated like VIPs. The proprietors, Raymond and Cornelia (and their dog Lulu :), were very professional and friendly. We were extremely pleased with the room that we stayed in. The bed was very comfortable and the room itself, well laid out. Our room even had a large whirlpool bath (which I made lots of use of :). The room was always very clean and it was made up every day. The grounds of the establishment included a pool and they were well kept.

The 'piece de resistance' of our stay, though, was the breakfasts. There was a great variety, plenty of it and it was always VERY tasty. The range included muffins, croissants, eggs, bacon, wors and sausages, minute steak and local specialities like savoury mince. And, with our Christmas breakfast, we even got a champagne spritzer!!

Raymond and Cornelia were also very accommodating, when/if you needed something, and extremely helpful with suggestions on ways to enhance your stay and holiday enjoyment.

As far as I'm concerned, its not often that you find a gem like the Kings Guest House, so I would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment.

I also have to say that we've both been travelling quite a while and we both agree that the Kings Guest House is probably the best guest house that we've ever stayed at!

I can say that we'll DEFINITELY be staying there, the next time we're in Durban.
