No point in going to Durban or Umhlanga if you are not going to stay at the Valdior. This is a true boutique B and B. Friendly reception staff invite you into this modern mansion with beautiful sea views. Rooms are well appointed, spacious and comfortable with all the amenities a traveller needs. The day is started with a scrumptious... More

This was the last hotel on our 17 day trip, and a relaxed way to end. Staff were friendly and helpful, room had a great view and balcony. Looked to us as if they were undergoing a redecoration as our room and some of the public areas were tired..... there is great potential for this to be a lovely hotel... More

Valdior Guest House is a beautiful mansion with rooms fit for a princess. The staff is highly professional and very discreet and helpful. It is surrounded by many just as beautiful mansions. Breakfast was freshly made from a extensive menu to choose from. The pool looked also very nice. From the balkony you have a beautiful view of the ocean.

We spent two days at Valdior. The view from the room (Claudia) is very beautiful, you can see the ocean. The breakfast is good and the staff is helpful. Is nice to see the monkey run in the garden and over trees :)

My sister and I stayed at Valdior for two nights. The rooms we were each allocated were luxurious and spacious. The staff were welcoming, friendly and professional. The breakfast menu offered a variety of choices and was delicious. Valdior is conveniently located - close to restaurants, shopping malls, the beach and the airport. We will definitely be staying at Valdior... More

We stayed in the Augusta Room. We found this room most satisfying to our needs. We had wifi included too. The room was always cleaned to our liking. We didn't have a sea view. However, we had a private entrance, courtyard and our own parking a step away. The breakfast was really delicious. The staff were friendly, welcoming and lovely... More

We had been in Umhlanga Rocks a month before and, although we enjoyed the previous B&B we stayed at, we thought we would try something different. We were glad we did as we really enjoyed our couple of nights at Valdior. It was a little longer walk to the beach and restaurants than the other we stayed at but overall... More

Stayed at this guest house over the Dec vacation and it did not disappoint. Location is good although its a bit of a walk to the beach or restaurants. Service was excellent and the ladies are very friendly. We enjoyed a good breakfast every morning. The rooms are luxurious, comfortable and well furnished. Only down side was the green pool... More

This B&B is stunning, and the interior decoration is of exceptional standard. Sandra is a lovely host and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast was delicious and cooked to your requirements. The location is good, and just a short walk from the beach, and restaurants. I would recommend this as a good stop off, but not a long stay.... More

I stayed at this lively B&B on a recent business trip to Durban.Had such an awesome experience at and will be visiting them again soon. The rooms are luxurious, the sea-views beautiful, the common areas so inviting and the breakfast was lovely.
