We were in Durban for two weeks. We found Sparkling Star a great place to come home to after each busy day. After a night in a very clean and comfortable room we were greeted each day with a great breakfast with a wide variety of delicious choices. Anticipated the aroma of fresh coffee upon entering the dining area! The... More

I have stayed at Sparkling Star two years in a row now while settling my daughter at the Durban University of Technology (DUT). It has been a pleasure to stay in such a warm and welcoming home from home. Thea has been an angel, especially the first year when we knew nothing about Durban and where to source various items...

I was down in Durban for an exam and stayed in Sparkling Star for almost a month. It felt like home. The centralized location made it very easy for me to access different places conveniently. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. The owners make sure they do everything to make you feel comfortable. And it's not just the comfortable... More

We stayed for business in October and enjoyed our stay. My husband and assistant had to leave early in the morning, too early to have breakfast. This was no problem breakfast was packed for them so that they did not have to go hungry. Breakfast for me was ready at 8 o'clock and was plenty full. I enjoyed sitting in... More

The whole experience was wonderful from arriving in the rain, and having Thea, (owner and manager) run out to meet me to the wonderful breakfast and chat before I left. The house is quaint, and comfortable, with loads of space, relaxing bathrooms, and a warm cosy common area. I will definitely stay here again.

Sparking Star offered far more than I expected. From the prompt response to my enquiry, to assisting me when I arrived ( I had just undergone an operation ) I was not only made to feel welcome but also so comfortable in a private flatlet which is tastefully decorated and spacious. I felt I had the privacy I required, but... More

Spotlessly clean. Close proximity to city centre. Free WiFi. Free garage. Amazing breakfast. We stayed here for 4 days during the 2013 Academy Week. It is walking distance from Glenwood High. Thea the hostess is a peoples person who went the extra mile in making sure we were comfortable & well looked after. ……..and the breakfast! 10 out of 10

Unforgettable 4 day stay over with the friendliest hostess, gorgeous breakfasts and adorable rooms. The close proximity to the city and nearby shops should make this a wonderful first choice for all business and holiday travellers.
