We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 5 Burnham and recommend it without qualification. The house is beautiful in a lovely area: safe and accessible. The hosts Lee and Peter were lovely and great company. Stay here when you visit Umhlanga.

The guest house was beautiful and the hosts excellent. Room was excellent. Absolute value for money, stayed in another guest house locally and it did not compare. I would stay at Five Burnham again in a heartbeat and have already recommended it to friends.

We enjoyed the superb setup and design of this guesthouse and the excellent service. The location is convenient for either an Umhlanga beach weekend or city trip to Durban. I can recommend Five Burnham for a holiday weekend as well as business trip accommodation.

our host was most accommodating. My only regret was that we could not stay longer. i wish we could have stayed longer, and now I am only filling in spaces because it will not let me submit with a shorter review.

Guesthouse was everything we were looking for, a lovely spacious room, great bathroom, patio and pool.Sheila and Alan were delightful and very helpful as were the other members of their team.The nearby town had a good range of eateries, pubs and shops. Needed a car as located a walk from amenities. Felt very safe and secure here and would return.

Alan and Shelia looked after me really well from the start. The bedroom was well equiped and comfortable and the breakfast good. I did not use the pool or bar but both looked good. High recommended and excellent value for money.

Great stay at 5 Burnham! Highly recommended - great facilities, great food, friendly and helpful staff who are always available and give you the space you need. We were bumped up from the standard room to the executive suite as it wasn't busy and they made it spectacular for us.

The B&B hosts, Sheila & Alan, are warm hospitable hosts and were so helpful in making my stay in Durban memorable (4 days). From the moment of the organized pickup by host Alan at the airport to my departure, everything was lovely. I immediately felt at home and at ease, which was crucial, as it was my first visit to...

Five Burnham is a beautifully decorated and well appointed guest house. The owners are very friendly and they accommodated our every need - even driving us to the airport at no extra cost! It is near the popular restaurants in Umhlanga and near Gateway. My boyfriend and I will definitely be returning on our next visit to the La Lucia/... More
