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.

A very pleasant B 'n B with a great view over Durban. Comfortable, clean and easy access to all parts of the city. Lily and Bentley were two very well behaved pooches. Parking a little bit of a battle, but Edith does a wonderful juggling act and pursuing ways to improve the situation.

Unfortunately we stayed for only one night (4 adults, 1 baby) and had no time for breakfast the next day, since we had to rush off to the... More

Have nothing but good things to say about this B & B. Wonderful, friendly hosts. Great breakfasts. Very comfortable rooms. Off the beaten track, maybe, but not inconvenient. Safe off road parking. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

Stayed in the cottage which was clean had conformable beds but tv volume very low. Customer service very good lady was so nice and kind. My only disappointment is finding dogs. The website I booked on led me to believe no pets allowed meant they didn't have dogs as well. They should make it clear they have dogs! Very well... More
