The gardens were well-tended. A delicious breakfast was served each morning. the accommodation was outstanding. They even organised a group braai for us all... More

Beautiful gardens but rather shabby accommodation definitely not worth 5 star rating. The air con wasn't working and it took 20mins for the staff to sort it out, unable to use the fan that was practical hanging by a thread from the roof. The pictures were at various angles on the wall and generally the room looked like it needs... More

Stayed here for one night on a business trip around South Africa in November 2013 - Lovely place and a refreshing change from chain hotels. Great staff and very helpful, the owner's wife even organising to drop us off and pick us up from a business dinner in town.

Small boutique Hotel created by renovating a house and biuilding on number of rooms on the same property. Everything was clean and in order. Decent foot, good accommodation. Nice & pleasant small hotel with friendly staff keen to assist and ensure pleasant stay. Located quite centrally to Hilcrest.

Our group of six spent three nights here in Rooms 1-3. A very attractive and secure lodge and grounds in Hillcrest, very suitable if you need to stay in this region. The lodge rooms are all themed differently, some of which are quite dark - if you don't like imposing dark red walls throughout ask for another room! Some have... More

We stayed here a few weeks ago for 9 nights as we had a wedding to attend near by. Room was lovely and spacious (room 14) and the staff were very accommodating, helpful and friendly. We didn't make breakfast very often as it finished a bit early for us (7am-9am) but when we did there was a good choice. As... More

Stayed here for 3 nights while on business. The fully functional suite (No. 4) was a lot bigger than I expected, would have been a modestly priced apartment in the Midwest. The service was excellent, with the concierge taking my order for dinner at my door every night. The breakfast/dinner menu was a bit lacking for options, but the food... More

This B&B is located in Hillcrest, about half an hours drive from Durban, or a good hour from the airport. The staff are very friendly, the room we had was excellent, and we had a good breakfast. The accommodation is very central, close to the shops and restaurants, and well fenced with safe parking and sercurity gate.
