We decided to stay an extra day or two in Durban before attending a wedding. We stayed 2 nights at de charmoy. It's a very peaceful place, with very comfortable, spacious, clean and well kept rooms. The staff we engaged with were friendly and professional. The only draw backs: 1) the breakfast was extremely oily, the oil was literally gathering... More

The waiting for breakfast in the morning is very long and guests have to wait more than 30min to be served. Look at different approach. I will also recommend that you also introduce the do not disturb signs on the rooms. It very disturbing for service staff to be knocking while having an afternoon nap.

Thank you for your candid notes. Our breakfasts are cooked from scratch and not pre-cooked waiting on hot trays especially in the hotter weather. We will definitely take on board the Do Not Disturb signs. Thank you for staying with us over the Holiday period and wish you all the best for 2015. More

I arrived late and left early so didn't really have a chance to use all of the facilities but my room was very well appointed with a small kitchen area and the staff were very friendly. The taxi arranged for me arrived on time and was very efficient.

The very polite staff were always concerned to make our stay very happy and relaxed. The rooms were spacious and clean and well equipped. Rooms very close to the pools which were used a lot by my kids due to the climate. Area provided a secure base to explore the area and so close to the airport. The staff couldn’t... More

Huge positives: Beautiful Location, a warm welcome, 2 lovely pools, honesty bar, very quiet and serene environment, very close to Durban International Airport: Approx 20 Minutes' drive. Honesty bar is great to have available. Very romantic for couples. Very minor negatives: No food was available, it's not very close to central Durban if that's what you want. The closest restaurants... More

Thank you for your kind comments. Regarding the monkey in the cage - we found it injured and alone so brought it back to health in the cage and as soon as its health improved we will release it into nature. More

I stayed at DeCharmoy Estate Guest House while traveling in and out of Durban on a recent trip to South Africa. It's a short 5 minutes from the Durban airport and they are there to pick you up and will also drop you off at the airport. Cathy and her staff are attentive and the rooms are spacious and nicely...

The De Charmoy Estate Guest House is truely a place I would describe as home away from home with all the added luxuries. Cathy & her staff are all wonderful and the grounds are beautiful and relaxing, guess that is why I chose to return for the 2nd time with my family. To anyone looking for a lovely place to... More
