My stay at Southey House in Kloof was nothing short of outstanding. The property is conveniently situated close to schools, restaurants, coffee shops, etc. yet has a peaceful feel to it, with an incredible view of Durban in the distance.
Lizette and the staff are warm, engaging and went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable.

Nothing was ever too much or a problem and all requests were met with enthusiasm. When I asked about exercising, Lizette suggested I walk in the school grounds and provided me with a pass to the school property, which has an amazing walking trail and lovely facilities.

I highly recommend this guest house if you are staying in Kloof.

I simply loved staying at Southey House. Tranquil place with beautiful views. The staff are friendly and helpful. They are equipped with charged lights during loadshedding, so no need to worry about being in the dark. Would HIGHLY recommend Southey House.

Southey House is an incredible stay experience. Lizette was so friendly and accommodating when I panicked called her late in the evening for an unexpected stay. The room was very comfortable and their breakfast phenomenal. Would highly recommend staying here ♥

We loved Southey House. The B&B is clean and roomy. The common spaces are nicely furnished. The rooms are large, comfortable, clean. And the team at Southey was so accommodating. We would highly recommend and will be back.

Rooms are large and neat (Have a new sort of touch to them). The views are stunning overlooking Durban. The beds were firm and comfortable, nice pillows. I slept well because the area is quite yet close to the M13. Stayed for 2 months. Definitely the best out there no need to look further than this. Breakfast was also of a high standard. Felt like home from home. I highly recommend this guesthouse.

Southey house is a superb B&B: comfortable, excellent location, tastefully furnished with uninterrupted views of Durban and the coast. We stayed in the Karoo suite, which was extremely spacious with a well appointed en-suite bathroom and, of course, those views. Breakfast was delicious and served in the cosy breakfast room, although we could have taken it on the large colonial-style terrace. There is also a secluded pool area at the rear of the house, which we didn't sample as it was rather chilly when we visited.

Lisa is a perfect hostess, welcoming yet discreet, one almost feels one has known her for years. We were her second guests and would like to keep Southey house a secret, so that it doesn't become too popular. Unfortunately this is not going to happen.

Amazing, warm hospitality, thank you to Lisa and her staff for making it so special and picture perfect. Will add more pics as soon as i get them xxx
