Such a warm and beautiful home and B&B, everyone was so friendly to us and it was extremely comfortable. Rooms were beautiful, very clean, tidy and beautifully furnished! I would recommend this to everyone visiting Durban! And will definitely be staying here every time I come and stay in Durban. Thank you for a lovely stay :)

This is a beautiful and charming boutique bed and breakfast in a lovely part of Morning side of Durban. We really enjoyed our stay here. The owners came out to greet our party (we were a group of 6 demanding girls) upon arrival. The place is full of lovely things and full of character that the owners have been collecting... More

My husband, my sister and I stayed in the garden cottage at Fiddler's Rest from November 22 to December 4, 2012. The rooms were clean and well appointed, with modern amenities and well-kept grounds. The host was very pleasant and helpful. The only problem we experienced was with the Internet and cable service.

Having read lazybaucklan’s review I had to comment on this place. Having grown up in the area and now living in London I make sure I stay here when returning on business or holiday. This is clearly a family business and run with love and attention not the usual slap dash B&B attitude. The food is great, the location is... More

The Fiddlers Rest is what it says it is - a luxurious and spacious bed and breakfast. We were a party of six adults and two children. Our suite of family rooms were large and well equipped with coffee/tea making facilities, a small fridge, hairdryer etc. They were spotless and charming with comfortable beds and crisp linen. Our hosts Tony... More

Fiddlers Rest describes itself as an English style mansion which is odd as it reminds me of a 70's detached built from face brick. The owners provided a very nice breakfast each day and were very hospitable so you can't fault the service. Unfortunately the standard of accommodation makes it feel cold, outdated and functional rather than a welcoming and... More

Rosetta House recommended Fiddlers Rest so despite the fact there was no reviews I was confident it would be good. From the road I immediately had second thoughts No 11 blends into the wall and fiddlers rest sign is extremely small there is no indication at the entrance that it is a Guesthouse, however No 9 is clearly displayed so...

This Guest was charged for 4 days and lost her deposit because she was booked in from 15 June and only let us know at 11.30 pm that she would only be arriving the following day. She arrived the next morning and left on the evening of 18 June 2011 after the arrival of her friend who stated that she... More
