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. My husband runs the comrades and is always touched by the extra length Edith goes to by preparing breakfast for him before the race. It's a truly home... More

Absolutely amazed by the Orchids (or whatever you call them)! Well appointed rooms. As mentioned, the shower rose has a leak but I'm sure it's fixed by now. Could happily have stayed for another few nights!

We had a really enjoyable family stay at An Upper Room. It's a lovely, welcoming, well maintained place, very child friendly, a nice pool for the kids and a fabulous buffet breakfast. Highly recommended.

I really felt comfortable in this B&B. The hosts were fantastic, friendly and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean and the view lovely. The breakfast was the best I have had so far at a B&B in Durban. Highly recommend, thank you Edith and Leon for a wonderful stay!
