Your cold water comes out very hot at times, I asked for the ladder at the bunk to be tightened, wasn't done until the end of our stay. Body wash and handwaah wasn't topped up after night 1 of our stay. Staff didn't ask once how's our stay thus far. Still awaiting call from Manager with a price for courier as I forgot my USB stick. Also no remote for the TV in the room.

Bally High was just what we needed for the overnight say. An extremely friendly reception, helpful staff all of whom made sure any of our needs were attended to in a professional manner. Our room was very comfortable - perhaps an easy chair would add value. We coped with the stairs even though both of us are well into our 70s. Breakfast was excellent. And La Lucia Mall right on the doorstep!

Highly recommended

Area of improvement-
Geyser capacity (by 9 water was cold).
I didn't like the post inspection,I felt offended because there was no pre inspection (counting of towels).

Other that all good, I am actual planning to bring my kids

WIFI coverage should be improved to be accessible to all rooms and at least breakfast should be served. Otherwise it was a worthy place to be. The swimming pool was superb and clean. Generally my family and I were very content to be accommodated in this place.

We arrived at the guest house during load shedding and there was nobody to let us in whilst we waited on the road for 10-15 minutes.
There was no water when we arrived and no water when we left hence not being able to shower or refresh. Mini bars had no contents and we were not offered a bottle of water or any sort of water to brush teeth in the morning

After a 13hr flight from London, we arrived in Durban exhausted. We were so looking forward to arriving and sitting on a balcony with a glass of wine and enjoying the tranquility and the coastal view. However when we arrived it took about 15min for anyone to let us in. We were then questioned to why we were there. It was very clear this place was under construction. We phoned , emailed, texted and whatsapp owner and to-date have had no reply . We are still waiting for an acknowledgment and a refund.

I would have been better off staying at a varsity hostel during rag week…. Noisy guests playing music in the halls, shouting, slamming doors ALL
NIGHT. Attempted solution by staff was to move ME. Avoid!

The staff was welcoming, especially the other guy at the reception by the name of “Willson” if I’m not mistaken. They assisted us with everything we needed. And they were very understanding. The swimming pool was clean, rooms were clean, everything was tops. I definitely book this place again.

Hi. Sorry for the late reply but couldnt remember my password! there was no curfew but I there are other rooms so I guess you would just need to consider other guests if you are back late. You do need a car as there are no restaurants etc close by. There is a very good shopping mall close but it seemed to close down (incl restaurants there) about 6pm. Please contact me if you want to know anyting else about the area
