Our stay (12 of us on a trip for graduate school) at Sica's Guest House was wonderful. The rooms were clean and airy, the grounds were beautifully landscaped and the food was delicious. The staff were courteous and friendly. Since we were traveling in a group, I can't really speak to the ease of getting around from this spot but... More

Stayed at Sica's for two nights for a business trip. The towels were frayed and stained, walls dirty, carpets stained/damaged place is just run down and unkept. I only saw a manager once when I had to pay. I wouldn't stay here again.

I was on my honeymoon in South Africa for 16days. This hotel was by far the worst. Why? The room was dark (even darker due to a 15min power outage just after arrival - great!) and very old. Like the whole resort. It is just a big run-down place from the 50s or older I believe. The location is also... More

I have been staying over at Sica's during my last two trips to Durban. A delightful place very close to the centre of town. It is just far enough to get out of the "City" and still close enough to get to meetings quickly. I like the buffet for breakfast and the fact that there is not such a big... More

Visited this large B&B twice. Rooms were clean and the Friendly staff put on a good breakfast each morning with nothing being to much trouble . Eggs to order and porridge if you wanted as well.Others in our group had a good dinner there too. The location lets this B&B down , It is at least two miles from the... More

I spent 22 comfortable, safe, enjoyable nights on my own at Sica’s Guest House in Mayville (Durban). It was close to the UKZN Howard and Westville campuses where I needed to be at intervals throughout my stay. The room (38) was spotless and well appointed with the only hitches being slightly decrepit plumbing (the shower head was inclined to squirt... More

Location not as affluent as neighbouring Musgrave or Morningside, but that doesnt really matter once you enter the estate. The colonial styled buildings and well manicured gardens create a sense of prestige and calm. Rooms are spacious and clean. Initially our room (42) suffered a broken AC and faulty TV reception but the friendly staff saw to it that we... More

Our group stayed here during a conference. The accommodations were comfortable, the staff friendly and the food very good. Wi-fi was available for purchase but the speed varied greatly and I had some trouble sending and receiving data at times.

I stayed at the sister house, Sica's B & B on Winter Avenue, Durban. Maria and staff were very courteous and helpful in all situations. Area information and B & B procedures are nicely presented in one folder. My room included a hairdryer, electrical adapter and a television; bathroom included personal toiletries and shower and separate tub. Breakfast was well-prepared... More
