As a business traveller, I find that this spot is ideal. Its comfortable, quiet and friendly owners make you feel welcome. I would definitely recommend it and I do go back myself - much better than a hotel.

thank you so much to the hosts , they were really kind and thoughtful. the only problem my husband and I had was the single beds. It would be nice to have a double or queen size bed for couple. Otherwise we will be going back again. Keep it up

We spent four nights there over Christmas - and thoroughly enjoyed every minute we stayed in the cottage at Leon and Edith Tuback's B+B. They are superb hosts, and really care about their guests. Scrumptious breakfasts got off us to a good start each day - and all was as it should be. Highly recommended by Dieter and Gabi Rencken

From my first meeting with Connie as I arrived I felt at home and welcome. The accommodation is comfortable and spacious, the view from my balcony of Howard College was astounding, breakfast was tasty, and the team of Edith, Leon and Connie was welcoming and friendly. The parking is small and steep, but that is all I can find to... More

Very hospitable and friendly proprietor, empathetic to client's needs. General standard of security is good. Quality of breakfast and comfort of the room meet value-for-money criteria. Facilities are of a good standard; possibly the only weak point is a rather small parking area.

An Upper Room is really a very nice place to stay in Durban, for many reasons. The location, the friendliness of the staff, nice atmosphere created by the host - Edith, a beautiful view of Durban, good breakfast. I can strongly recommend the place to other visitors.
