To keep it short and simple, The Upper Room is great! Not only are the owners and staff friendly but the owners were very flexible and did not limit when we could come and go. The rooms were great and comfortable and the on site facilities made our stay very pleasant. A bonus of course is that it was very... More

Apart from the warm and friendly greeting (and great hospitality throughout our stay), the Cottage was wonderful. Clean. Bright. Spacious. Good facilities. The only down side was the tiny telly! As for the doglets (+1 doguest!) - they made our stay even more perfect. Thank you for sharing your place with us. And we still owe you a Diet Coke!

Excellent and clean accommodation close to Pigeon Valley nature reserve. Ideal for birders exploring Durban and Bayhead, birding the reserves in the area or going on pelagic birding trips from Durban. Highly recommendable

Edith and Leon are the Hosts every Guest House should have. Having stayed here in 2013 for the Comrades Ultra Marathon again I immediately booked a room for 2015. A nice, pleasant quiet area 5-10 mins from downtown Durban. Edith and Leon always went the extra mille ensuring you were catered for and all was in place for your needs.... More

Had a wonderful weekend with family & the best ever hospitality by Edith, Leon & Sarah. They genuinely made us feel at home. I left the Wife & Kids at the B&B during the race on Sunday and they enjoyed the whole day with Edith & Leon keeping them company. Met fellow comrades runners & we all all became one... More

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 enjoyed my stay. Edith was very friendly and accommodated my needs and requests. The room was well kept and sufficient for me to perform my academic task during my stay. The breakfast was delicious.

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.

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:)
