This must be my 7th or 8th visit to Acorn B&B. The guest house is located in a grand old house along the Berea ridge in Durban, which is both quiet and conveniently located to everywhere in the city. The house has been lovingly restored and each nook and cranny is filled with charmingly eclectic art works and souvenirs from... More

I travel to Durban frequently for work and happened upon Acorn B&B online last year and gave it a try. Since that first night, I've referred visitors from overseas and have booked in with several colleagues when work required. The reasons I continue to come back to Acorn are many - firstly the owner (Don) is almost always on the... More

Great long stay at Acorn B&B. Very hospitable host in Don who is helpful and attentive. Really enjoyed my stay and can happily recommend it to anyone visiting Durban - be it short or longer. Centrally located in the heart of Morningside.

From all the b&b's and hotels I have stayed in, this was definitely the best! The place feels very homy and the owner is very friendly. They helped me with all kinds of stuff outside the b&b as well. It was very nice to feel so at home, even though so far away from home. I would recommend this place... More

Don is a gracious and charming host. And funny! I appreciated the extra attention to quality (of for example the linen and the training of staff), as well as the care and the kindness. I felt welcome even before I arrived.

Hi Pat We at Acorn B&B love having guests who only want to stay in Club Duvet as it is so comfy and inviting. I try to make this one of my chief concerns as I want my guests to return just to enjoy the luxury of the beds and linen. The beds are waiting for your return! More

I loved staying at this B&B. Don, the owner, was great - funny, kind and extremely attentive. The place was very well decorated and you could tell the owners really put their personal care and love into the place. The rooms were small, but the courtyard and garden provided ample room to stretch your legs. The B&B had a homey... More
