I had the pleasure of staying at Lavendermoon for 5 extremely comfortable nights. The owner Clair and her staff offer the highest of standards, service,cleanliness and comfort.

The bed and breakfast has 4 beautiful bedrooms, I actually requested the smallest one at the back because it is my favourite, full large bathroom and a very comfortable luxurious room with every thing in it you could possible need. The other 3 rooms are much larger with sea views.

I can honestly say this is the best B&B in Durban!!

By far the best B&B I have ever stayed at. From the extremely friendly and welcoming staff, to a big, clean and really comfortable environment. From a delectable and unique restaurant-quality breakfast, to an unbelievable human of an owner. I would recommend Lavender Moon to anyone!

By far the most friendly welkom and hospitality we have had in SA ( and nearly all our other experiences, 17 in a month, were nice as well)
I only can speak in superlatives about the rooms, the beds in special (I finally can sleep with my feeds " inside"), clean/new sheets etc etc. The livingroom and the veranda are even nicer then on the websited and are recently upgraded.

Claire is really fantastic and we felt directly home. She could be a friend for already a very long time. Her staff is enthousiastic as well which you can see in cleanliness and and friendliness.
Unfortunatly we only stayed for 2 days.

We wish Clair and her staff all the best for the future.
Big hug,

Hi Davids Family,
It was lovely having you all here, and 2 days was too short. It is definitely the hardest part of this job is saying good bye to guests that become like family.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay here, and felt at home.
I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in SA and got home safe.
We hope to see you again some time.

I recently had the good fortune to be unable to find a room at any of the local hotels in Durban or the surrounding region due to a large conference that was taking place in the city. Turning to the list of B&B i selected Lavender Moon and had a simply fabulous experience. Claire your host greets you upon arrival and makes you feel immediately at home. The rooms are perfect with your own bathroom and breakfast served out on the terrace overlooking Durban harbor and the Indian Ocean is simply a sight not to be missed. The team at Lavender Moon go above and beyond to make sure your stay goes smoothly and this allows you to focus on why you are in Durban either on business or pleasure.

Next time you are headed into Durban make sure you check availability at the Lavender Moon. you will not be disappointed. Thank you Claire for making my stay so enjoyable!!

I have stayed in a number of BnB's in Umhlanga for work, but Lavender moon (formerly A'Viletta Guest House" is by far my favourite. The staff are all extremely friendly, the breakfasts are delicious, the rooms are always superb and all in all one really gets that "home away from home" feeling when staying here. I will definitely be coming to stay here every time I am in Umhlanga area.
