I booked my stay for the Comrades 2022. The location is about 15 min from Durban ICC where you collect your race pack and bus pickup (if the start is at Pietermaritzburg). Also you have a spar less than 1km from the B&B as well as gateway mall 8min away...Not to mention the beach is also very close...

Biggest highlight was that the host prepared for each Comrades runner a breakfast pack to take with you on race day without us even asking for it. This was such a nice gesture and help tremendously on the day.

When I do Comrades again or just go down for a holiday I will most definitely book at Tesorino B&B again.

Thank You.
Best Regards,

Christian

My husband and I recently spent 10 nights (19 to 28 Dec) at Tesorino B n B in Umhlanga Rocks. Everything about it was great. Anne (owner) and Pauline who helped Anne were both warm and helpful. Tesorino was ideal for us as older grandparents as our young family, visiting from London were at their family home in Ridge road which was literally round the corner; and we could pop in 'as and when'. Room and generous breakfast service fantastic. Prices were very reasonable and I hope we can repeat the exercise in December 2023!

I spent two nights in this nice B&B with a very lush garden. The owner Anne is very kind.
Our room was very nice, but the toilet seat in our bathroom was very old
Breakfast was good, with a wide choice of food, but I think they need two people to cook/serve breakfast instead of only one; we had to ask for napkins because they were not on the tables.
Parking inside is quite uncomfortable, due to the slope; however parking outside is safe, because the area is 24h patrolled.
The location is fantastic, very close both to the sea and to the restaurants area.

I've booked accommodation at Tesorino for my CEO, Simon Phage, but what an embarrassment when he called me to inform me that his room was not up to standard when it came to cleanliness. The coffee plungers was dirty and the room smelled stuffy, as if it was not opened for a while. He is not a person that complains for nothing, but he was not very impressed with his room.
I regularly book at Tesorino for our staff members and will keep on booking there, but they must please make sure that all their room and the coffee station is properly cleaned and the rooms aired out before the guest arrives.
Kind regards
Louisa Erasmus

Response from Anne Mexon, Owner at Tesorino B&B
Responded 24 Feb 2023
Dear Louisa, I was horrified when my staff told me that Simon had complained about the room. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness of rooms. Our rooms a vacuumed every day. The coffee pot is no excure and I will take the staff to task about that. However KZN was been in the situation of extreme heat, and humidity interspersed by Flood conditions. So rooms have been closed up. Added to this is our constant monkey problem where we dare not leave doors and windows open. They get in everywhere and make a terrible mess. We literally have to be on gaurd while rooms are opened and cleaned. I was unfortunately away at the time as I am having radiation treatment up in Richards Bay but as you know - many of your other staff members have stayed here on numerous occassions and there has never been a problem. My sincere apologies to you and Simon and I will do everything in my power for this never to be a problem again. Warm Regards Anne

I specifically asked before my arrival that the room have an air conditioner. I don't know what the plastic thing on the wall making a noise but it certainly had no purpose cooling the room down in that hot humid Durban weather. The ceiling fan was wobbly and noisy. So no rest that evening for me.
After all this time places like this don't have adequate'charging points. I had to go and charge phone by crawling under the desk away from bedroom in the dressing room. Not worth the effort

Tesorino is centrally situated, being very near to the centre of Umhlanga. The rooms are spotless and spacious. The TV is of bigger size than usually found, and has full a full DSTV bouquet. The breakfast was very good. A great place to stay!

Accommodation was fantastic and rooms were spotless and comfortable. The establishment is well located and within walking distance of beaches and a great selection of restaurants and other retail offerings. The breakfast was outstanding and the host and staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating.

We had a great stay at Tesorino. Very quiet and clean with a lovely pool area. The staff were very warm and friendly and very welcoming. The breakfast was fantastic with it being made fresh for you as you request. Its a 10 minute walk to the beach and about the same to the shopping malls and restaurants, we felt safe with multiple security checks happening daily. We would definitely stay again

First time and not the last time I’ll be staying here. Rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated, well kept. Mini bar well stock. Lovely view from balcony. Breakfast a must - freshly prepared English and Continental breakfast on offer. Friendly staff. Owners are professional and friendly. Well situated in short walking distance to shops, restaurants and the beach. Pesonal touch is evident in this upmarket establishment.

I highly do not recommend this place the pictures are deceitful! The place is smelling like an old rusty house and you cannot have a visitor otherwise you pay an additional R500. The old lady doesn’t have boundaries she be knocking none stop like she has nothing else to do! Even their reception isn’t welcoming so don’t go there!

Response from Anne Mexon, Owner at Tesorino B&B
Responded 27 Aug 2023
Good day Responding to inaccurate information: 1. Our accommodation is not smelly and rusty - should you have told us there was a smell we would have investigated to see what the problem was. 2. On our website and booking platforms we show the 4 different types of rooms available and they have different pricing 3. Visitor not on a booking can't stay in the rooms but can join you for breakfast for an extra fee, just as a guest staying overnight has to do. As the guest, you booked a single rate, and the rates differ between single and double. 4. Knocking on your door to ask something is respectful when needing to communicate with a guest. I would not be disrespectful to any guest so if you thought I was you should have told me. 5. Reception....you don't say how you would want it to be welcoming. Guests sign in and then never, unless there is a need or enquiry, come to reception. 6. You give us a bad rate on everything and all it would have taken was to talk to us. We have wonderful guests staying here and communicate with us if there is anything we can do to assist them. All you had to do is talk to us. That is why we are here. Have a good day Regards Pauline(locum)
