The best part of this great guesthouse on the hill, is the magic vista accross Durban city from its rooftop entertainment deck, be it day or night. The bed night rate was surprisingly good too. For me there is no alternative accommodation in Durban, Durban View is perfectly located near nightlife, restaurants, main roads, shops and other attractions in a... More

What a great stay! Our hosts, Llewellyn and Dave made us feel at home. Welcome drinks on the first night with them, and some of the other guests. Close to the city centre, as well as the night life, without being in the noisy zone. Will definitely be back.

Fabulous! A definite re-visit. The save area, personal attention from owners, comfortable room and common living area with fantastic breakfasts makes it excellent. Indoor bar such a pleasure. . and Caroline is just a gem!

Great place to stay - comfortable bed, lovely bathroom, excellent breakfast and great breakfast host, Caroline. Good bar with almost everything (remember to stock Peroni!). Ensure you check how busy it is when you book - not nearly as much fun when it is quiet. Place is in need of some maintenance and a pity that the Jacuzzi was out... More

Since my first review, I have stayed in the Garden Flat several times. This is a luxury experience-- own kitchen, completely private, set away from the house. The main house is always in good condition, and the breakfasts are larger than required. The attention to any needs of the guests continues to be immaculate. Close to the stadium, racecourse, gym,...

The central location, exceptional service, awesome fittings and setting were very unexpected. Loved the privacy where you are left very much to do your own thing, but the attention of the housekeeper who cooks a great breakfast and perfect hosts and one could not ask for anything more....

Firstly I love the attention to detail and then also the quiet area. The Guesthouse is very close to Durban City centre and absolutely loved it from the start to the end. Breakfast was just like I wanted it and loved the service of Caroline, she is a awesome girl indeed. Llewellyn and David really went out of there way... More
