Lovely guest house in beautiful and safe location

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 09 Mar 2024
Travelling with family and friends we stayed here for 5 nights. The location is beautiful and very safe. The hosts, Hazel and Ash , were very helpful and gave us tips on where to go ( and also where to avoid) . The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were well presented and beds very comfortable.

Friendly, accommodating and helpful staff. Perfectly located for ease of access to everything you might require, including restaurants and beach. Tranquil surrounding in a busy town. Perfect venue to unwind after a busy day. Rooms are very comfortable and well maintained

Always such a pleasure to stay here. It’s my favourite accommodation for Umhlanga. The ocean facing rooms have beautiful views and the staff are friendly and polite. A great choice if you want to stay by the beach in Durban.

Beautiful décor, warm welcome and fantastic breakfast.
The place was clean, a short walk away from the beach while still centrally located for restaurants and shopping.
My wife and I will definitely be back!

During our visit there was a serious breach of security when an intruder entered a guest bedroom in the early morning hours .Evidently this was not an isolated incident.
This episode left us severely vulnerable and we decided to leave immediately and seek alternative accommodation .

Excellent accommodation, beautifully appointed and such a lovely alternative to big hotels. "We arrived as strangers but left as friends", Hazel & Ashley were fabulous hosts, they were friendly and so very helpful. The staff were very good and everything was seamless.
