My wife and I stayed at Roosfontein as it is a pet friendly facility. The travel agent booked us a room with 2 single beds but the owners changed it to a double bed the moment we arrived. We did not even need to ask. Service was excellent and the breakfasts are huge. We could not finish our breakfasts. A... More

I didn't expect much from the pics, but this place and the view from the suite made me wish i lived there. Its so personal. Our hosts were friendly. I will definitely be staying here again. By the way, you wont get a better breakfast than the one served here.

My girlfriend and I stayed here and were blown away by the warm greetings and hospitable reception given by the owners, Amanda and Johnny. Not only did they provide a 5 star accommodation and food, but they went out of their way to help us with anything we needed. Situated on the border of a stunning nature reserve, it was... More

Visited this beautifully situated accommodation bordering a Nature Reserve. The owners made you feel as you are one of the family, warm and welcoming. The food was fantastic and we were spoiled with local dishes for which you always wanted a second helping. We were shown around the Zulu and farmers markets in the near by areas, taken on bush...

I would highly recommend the Roosfontein ,a beautiful and luxurious B&B with excellent service to anyone traveling to Durban. It's location is quiet and convenient, with beautiful garden & walk to the river. Amanda & Johnny are very helpful, kind and hospitable. We felt right at home and will return next year .

We stayed here for one night in November 2013 while travelling through South Africa and had a very good time. Our hosts were wonderful, the Suite 1 (Giraffe) room was very nice. The photos on their web-site demonstrate everything perfectly (no photo-shopping here). The trails that are available to explore are worthwhile too. Breakfast was good and definately got us... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights and we were very relaxed and in total comfort. We stayed in the exclusive suite. The location suited us as we were near family in surrounding areas and could come back to our privacy. We had no time to go down to the river and explore but will definitely return and enjoy... More

NO Hilton, Elangeni, Maharani can offer the personalised service that you get at Roosfontein. I will always go back and can recommend this B&B to anyone. I can echo all the sentiments from the previous guests who stayed and reviewed Roosfontein. I invite you all to try them out once......you will always go back.
