My colleague and I stayed here during the Indaba tourism exhibition and were pleasantly surprised by the guesthouse. It was located very conveniently and close to the ICC. The rooms were very comfortable, spacious and nicely decorated. Also the breakfast was delicious. But the best was the warm hospitality from Edith and Leon. They made sure that we didn't lack...

I have stayed in many B&B''s before. I can honestly say that the Upperroom B&B was most certainly one of the absolute best ones I have had the pleasure to stay in. Edith and Leon is beautiful people. Edith makes you feel like she is visiting you, not the other way round. I highly recommend "The Upper Room " Ti-Jean... More

Great B and B with great service that my colleagues and I have enjoyed on numerous occasions while in Durban on business. Close to all main routes to both North and South coasts. Great to have a dip in the pool at the end of a work day:)

We were delighted with the room, comfort, friendly hospitality, stunning views and convenient location of this hidden treasure of a Bed & Breakfast in Glenwood, Durban. Ideal for tourist or business travel.

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
