It was a very good place to stay, however the room was not big enough for a couple. The rest of the house was beautiful and the artwork inspired our deco ideas in our own home. We would stay again in a different room.

I have been staying at 5 Burnham (mostly for business trips) since 2006, and have found the accommodation and breakfast to be of excellent value. Its location allows me access the M4 motorway with ease, whilst I normally visit the Virgin Active gym at La Lucia mall. The patio next to the swimming pool is normally the place where I... More

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.
