This is a long overdue review, and for that I apologize to Lee and Bill, as they were wonderful hosts. We were travelling to Africa for the first time from Seattle, and Lee did a great job of answering numerous questions prior to our arrival. They really help us to hit the ground running. Lee recommended the township tour with... More

Lee and Bill make you feel at home and offer a wealth of knowledge. The breakfast starts your day right and there's so much to do in Durban. We did the township tour the first day based on Lee's recommendation and we learned so much and it helped put the rest of our 3-week the trip in perspective. The accommodations... More

We were so welcomed by Bill and Lee from the moment we arrived. We stayed in the room situated inside their home and really felt very welcomed. The room was well provisioned with a spacious bathroom and huge bed with plenty of storage space and nice furnishings. There is also off road parking behind a secure gate. The breakfasts were...

Rosetta House is truly a home away from home. Warmly welcomed by Bill and Lee my stay was very comfortable and relaxing in their beautiful B&B. The finest attention to detail in their decor and the beautiful garden made it a pure pleasure. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious and made with lots of love. Well done on outstanding service! I'll... More

I really enjoyed my stay and both, Lee and Bill made me feel at home. They are both very kind, warm and helpful. The garden is amazing and the best way to start your day is by trying their delicious breakfast. Don't miss it! I would strongly recommend Rosetta House to women travelling alone. It has class and it's beautiful.

My husband and I spent the long weekend in Durban for the Durban Cycle Tour. We stayed in the cottage at Rosetta House. It was excellent - very quiet with a beautiful garden and wonderful welcoming hosts. I would recommend Rosetta House to anyone. Thank you Penny

I am glad I chose to stay at Ben and Lee's hospitable and welcoming B&B for my first trip to Durban. The property itself is excellent, in a great location with great local tips from Lee and Ben. The rooms and kitchen are very well equipped with small touches such as flowers from the garden. Indivually catered breakfast ensured a... More
