Have nothing but good things to say about this B & B. Wonderful, friendly hosts. Great breakfasts. Very comfortable rooms. Off the beaten track, maybe, but not inconvenient. Safe off road parking. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

Stayed in the cottage which was clean had conformable beds but tv volume very low. Customer service very good lady was so nice and kind. My only disappointment is finding dogs. The website I booked on led me to believe no pets allowed meant they didn't have dogs as well. They should make it clear they have dogs! Very well... More

...that I could not stay longer! We got to An Upper Room (AUR) later than planned, as some meetings ran late. We were greeted by a warm and friendly Connie who already had dinner ready and waiting. Being vegetarian, I was well catered for - not just salad and side items, but a full, sumptuous meal for dinner! My colleague... More

Wi-Fi worked well & Connie was a star, always ready to help & preparing a scrumptious breakfast every morning where one can enjoy on the patio overlooking the pool.... More

Fantastic service from Edith Tuback and her staff who really go out of their way to accommodate the weary traveler. Glenwood is perfectly situated for Durban business travel. The downstairs room was clean; good breakfast and coffee; quiet environment to gather one’s thoughts… just the ticket for an overnight stay.

I absolutely enjoyed staying at the Upper Room. My room was clean and cozy, breakfast was amazing, and the owner and staff were very friendly. It seemed like a home away from home. I would definitely stay again.

we allway stay here, when we fly in or out from Durban (+/- 45 min. drive to the airport), but in a nice area in Durban, close to all main roads, to be quick on the high way north or south and into town. lovely hosts, great staff and cool dogs, like a home from home!

Me and my family never think twice about where we are going to stay when we go to Durban. We are always welcomed with warm hands, treated with respect and like family.
