Went with the family for breakfast. Had two toddlers with us. The staff were very pleasant and accomodating to our multitude of requests. The food was presented beautifully and tantalised the tastebuds. The venue is classy & serene.

The breakfast menu could improve with the edition of more options.

All in all a delightful experience and we will be back for more.

Great ambiance. Love the high ceilings and spacious rooms. Friendly staff and good food too. Will definitely visit again soon and recommend to others too. Also quite nice that there's no alcohol served on the premises.

we arrived at the hotel and were greeted with warm smiles and cheerful staff.
at dinner we were treated like royalty with every detail taken care off.
we were even given a menu that they were not serving.
although they close at 10pm they stayed open till 11pm without rushing us.

Despite having held numerous Forum Dinner Meetings at the establishment, we were not informed that it was under new ownership and no longer served alcohol. When we asked if it would be possible to bring in our own bottles of wine, we were refused.

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.
