Great place to stay. Breakfast was great. I only have one small complaint is to fix the hole at the bottom of the bath in the Signature room. I checked in late as I could not get an earlier flight so was also charged a late check in fee. She explained that they have to get staff to work late so have to charge for this. I accepted and understood this. Just letting everyone know that their is one in case you are going to check in late.

The Accommodation was excellent in almost all aspects. The room was clean. The air conditioner assisted a lot as Durban was hot at the time. The building is architecturally well designed. The swimming pool was very clean.

Travelled to LaLuxe for business - the location is excellent. Love the Large shower and bath. The only thing that could be improved upon in my opinion is the DSTV offering. Otherwise the room is gorgeous and the staff are exceptionally helpful. Excellent value. Thank you.

After all the hype on their website about an architectural designed property it was a bit of a letdown. It needs a bit of care affording to it. Our bath panel had a hole in it where they had mended a pipe, this being a brick opening with tiles on the front. You could not stand up in the bath/shower due to a ridiculous height of the shower head. This place needs proper management in place as well, there were long spells where we didn’t see any management in the place. We had an issue with the Satellite TV, couldn’t get it working but there was no one to speak to so I gave up and couldn’t be bothered. We spoke to the house keeper more than we did the management, in fact she did more for us than anybody else, she even checked us in!!! The pool is a nice space and the breakfasts were delicious When we left there was no ‘goodbye how was your stay’ from the manager, just a grunt.

Response from LaLuxe, Manager at LaLuxe B&B
Responded 25 Mar 2020
Dear guest, Our manager is always on-sight and available via whatsapp for any questions or assistance. We would have gladly helped you with your TV, the specific room you are referring to has a setting on the DSTV remote, which when guests accidentally pres it the remote cannot control that decoder any more. We apologize that you could not enjoy the full bouquet of premium DSTV we offer our guests. Our managers have many responsibilities and may not always be seen by guests, our goal is to have everything perfect so that a guest would never feel they needed a managers assistance (like you did). We do apologies for the bath, we had a big issue that needed to be solved with the pipes and the plumber had to break into the side of the bath to fix it. We promise we are in the process of getting a proper fix and finish for that bath. We are sorry if the manager was not pleasant when you left. We always try to give a friendly service and have our guest leaving with a smile. We are proud of our check-in and cleaning staff though. They are much more than just "house keepers". They do a fantastic job with the breakfast (we always have many compliments), they check guests in and show them to their rooms, which are always clean and ready for a comfortable stay. They are "keepers". We do not know what we would do without them.

I loveeeed everything about the property, everything was amazing. The breakfast was yummy although there is need for variety in terms of what is offered. A suggestion would be placing a breakfast menu in all the rooms the guests can select and it can be submitted during the course of the day to aid for better preparation. Nadia is an excellent hostess.

Sometimes the pictures you see on websites can be deceiving. At least I have had such an experience before in Margate but this past weekend was different. LaLuxe lived up to expectations, no, the B & B exceeded expectations. Situated in La-Lucia some 100m from the beach it is a magnificent place for a holiday. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the whole place is classy. The deco throughout places to which I had access is stunning. Just one advice for the owner or manager: My wife and I came close to deserting the breakfast because a couple of flies were moving around unchecked. Perhaps the friendliness of the staff was a deal breaker. Flies aside, I would go to LaLuxe any day.

The room was very clean, location close to the ocean excellent, catering OK. The AC did not work, the lobby lady knew about it beforehand and said nothing. Parking is due lack of space a little problematic.
