Last february 2014 we stayed at this lovely guest house. We were a family of 5 Colombians that felt very welcomed. We were 2 couples and one single lady and the place was perfect for this group as each one has its private rooms with communal social areas. The house is immaculate and it has a beautiful garden with colorful... More

We stayed two nights at Rosetta house when we arrived and before we left Durban and got to see two different rooms. First we stayed in the main building where the owners live as well. The second time we stayed in a smaller building in the garden. I liked the first room in the main building better as it had... More

Our second stay at this gem B & B in Durban, which is probably the best we've stayed in in our eleven trips to SA. Lee, Bill and the staff are the B & B's greatest asset. We were warmly welcomed back to Rosetta House by Lee and Bill. Our room, with an outside sitting space, in the lovely garden... More

Easily the nicest and most welcoming B&B in Durban. Deserving of its status as #1 with its prime location and extensive hospitality extended by Lee and Bill. Lovely house set in amazing gardens.

As we approached Rosetta House I must admit we were a little concerned about all the security. Not that Rosetta was any different to all the other houses but I suppose we are just not used to this level of security. Once inside the gates we were met by the lovely Lee and Bill, our hosts. We instantly felt at... More

Sometimes the level of security ie.electric fences/presence of walking guards etc can be intimidating to those who are unused to these measures but regretably a necessity to ensure the safety & comfort of all our guests. Thank-you for your compliments & time spent submitting a review.A pleasure to meet you and hear about your past experiences in Bermuda. More
