Our stay was very nice. At first is did not go as planned due to the booking agency they use had cancelled my one of the rooms we had booked. There was no notification to us of this cancellation and 5 of us had to share the large family unit. But the manager did rectify the situation through financial means and was very apologetic. After the hiccup the stay was very nice. The house keeping staff was amazing and all the staff who work there were very friendly and professional. I would definitely go back and stay.

A very pleasant stay. Comfortable and clean in a quiet neighborhood. Good privacy and easy safe in and out access. My wife lost her gold watch and the staff found it under the bed and contacted us after we had left. It was really pleasant to deal with such honest and upright staff/management. I would definitely recommend this accommodation.

A lot of noise on the premises until the early hours of the morning by guests. Bathroom roof requires some maintenance For the rates at least include the Breakfast Look at upgrading the Television Channels

We were for one night in Sibson House. A large room with a good queensize bed, a good shower and bath, quiet place. A short distance from Cotswold Golfcourse and Kloof golfcourse. Dinner at Cotswold golfcourse was delicious. Thank you friendly host. Advise: renovation of the stairs to the cottage.

A wonderful, warm BnB in Hillcrest. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Toiletries in bathroom a welcome touch as was the milk and bottled water in the fridge on arrival. Bedding was very comfortable and towels were a spotless. A great place to stay.

Quiet tranquil and comfortable stay. One of the best most comfortable bed I have slept in yet. No dinner however there are many restaurants in the area and Gong Lok delivers. Really enjoyed my stay. Ask the host to stay in the upstairs unit.

One of the worst B&B experiences I have had. The accommodation is fair, but management is very unprofessional and does not belong in the hospitality industry. I requested extra coffee for a meeting which resulted in a demeaning lecture by the owner who had not even bothered to make an appearance until I checked out. I would strongly advise against booking accommodation at Friar Tuck.

This is an excellent B&B in the heart of Hillcrest, ideally located for business or pleasure in the local area or greater Durban and surrounds. The rooms are spacious and luxuriously appointed and the facilities are excellent. Janice, our host, provided some of the best service we've had anywhere. We enjoyed it so much, we've already booked for October.
