Wonderful stay at the Palms. Perfect location and close to Florida Road, which is safe enough to walk to. Lovely people and very accommodating. Beautiful view of Durban and comfortable. Thank you. If we are needing to stay in Durbs again, this will definately be our first choice and we recommend The Palms Guesthouse to anyone.

I loved staying at The Palms Guest House and will stay there any time. The room was awesome had a great sea view. I Loved the walk through closet to the bath room. I loved the breakfast although sometimes they will have Muslim visitors and feel they can try cater halaal as well.

We were welcomed and made to feel completely at home. Everything was very nicely presented, very clean and comfortable. The service was very attentive. The room had the most beautiful view of a lovely green garden.

I stayed for 3 nights at The Studio. The room is spacious, very neat and beautiful. The towels are changed every day. The reception is just 5 star deserving. The only thing that I didn't like is the breakfast which was the same menu for the whole 3 days. But the quality is perfect. The guest house location is perfect,... More
