Over ally, the service competes with international standards. Keep it up. The sound from the wooden steps when one is stepping up or down is quite alarming. The staff are quite cheerful and friendly. Both the inside environment & outside are well maintained.

Had a great stay with this friendly couple that followed up with me to make sure I am still arriving and what time I will be arriving. They were both waiting for me when I arrived after 7pm and was very helpful with recommendations for dinner.

We spent an evening at the establishment of Edith and Leon - they were consummate hosts, making us most welcome to their home - the rooms were well appointed, neat and clean, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful . It was like home from home, (not forgetting the two friendly dogs)

Not being able to book a room in ANY of the Durban hotels on the weekend of the 8-9 August 2015, I had no choice but to search for a B&B. I was pleasantly surprised that my initial assumption of B&B's was totally wrong. "An Upper Room" proved to be a peaceful, relaxing and pleasant stay with wonderful hosts. thank... More

I particularly liked the tranquillity of the location and the independence to choose channels on DSTV. The security is also up scratch. Could not enjoy the view from the balcony though because of bad weather but I would like to believe if the weather is fine it should be magnificent.

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
