The Villa La Palma was such a wonderful surprise for our recent business trip to Durban. Coming off a long trip in Rwanda and Tanzania, I was looking for a place to do laundry and settle in a bit while paying a visit to UKZN-- Villa La Palma was perfect. The apartment was just like a home with 2 bedrooms,... More

The guest house has four apartments with two very large bedrooms each. Apartments have fully furnished with complete kitchen. Period house with wooden floors, high ceilings and a charming little garden. Definitely recommended due to its location in trendy Glenwood, close to the ICC and other Durban landmarks. Within a stone's throw from a number of restaurants.

Lovely apartment with all the trims. Better value than a hotel. The breakfast is nice. Location is excellent and a few steps from lovely restaurants in Glenwood. Easy access to major attractions. Definitely worth a visit

It was clean and comfortable with all the amenities you could... More

I think was great value for money as well. We had the whole floor to ourselves. Two superb bedrooms, very clean and comfortable, a living room with TV... More
