5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

We were in town for graduation and needed a central location with easy access to amenities. What hospitable and attentive staff. Rooms were lovely and clean. Attended to all our requests. We felt very at home. I forgot some things at the hotel and they kept it aside for me until I could collect.
Breakfast service could do with some work.

Great venue to hold a small function. Ample parking space. Attentive and friendly waiters who go the extra mile to ensure you and your guests are comfortable. Great value for money. Definitely my new favourite place.

Staff are friendly polite and efficient.
There were no unpleasant surprises.
My room was spacious and bed comfortable. Good internet was provided.
Breakfast started at 6:30am and was delicious and freshly prepared.

A great guesthouse tucked away in a residential area. Good value for money and a great place if you want to be away from the noise of bars and restaurants These are just a short and cheap taxi ride away.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Originally the home of Corobrick founder Robert Storm who built it in 1892, the guesthouse is steeped in Durban history and retains much of its old world charm. The 15 bedrooms are individually decorated in a classically elegant style with some having a view over the century's old St James church while others look over the hotel's peaceful garden patio. Being close to the trendy eateries of Florida Road, Durban's beachfront, major sports stadiums (Kings Park and Moses Mabhida Football Stadium), golf courses and Jameson and Mitchell Parks means all Durban's attractions are just a short drive away. The guesthouse is ideal for small meetings, conferences and private dinners and is well equipped to ensure business runs smoothly and efficiently. For business guests, the guesthouse is well-placed for access to the ICC, as well as quick freeway access to the Umhlanga Ridge precinct. ... more   less
