We had a great stay at Valdior. In my personal opinion it is the staff that makes this property outshine the rest. Sazi and Precious in particular made us feel like we are old friends visiting and no request was too much for them. On day one our internet connection was down but with Sazi's excellent trouble shooting skills managed... More

The building and facilities are five star but the running and maintenance do not live up to the magnificent setting. Some lights and switches do not work. Our shower leaked onto the bathroom floor. Cupboards and doors are chipped and ill fitting. The cleanliness of the kitchen and the maintenance of the individual appliances is third world. A very enjoyable... More

We were with overseas friends,who were very impressed with this lovely house and luxurious accommodation. As we were on a road trip we only stayed overnight. Next time we are in Umhlanga we will return to Valdior

Our enormous room overlooked a crystal clear swimming pool in the gardens, above which lay a panoramic sea view. Friendly staff, comfortable bed, and the tastefully decorated building and grounds rounded off our perfect, albeit short, stay at Valdior.

A beautiful and comfortable room and guesthouse. Lovely breakfast, friendly staff. 10 minute walk to bars and restaurants. Good location for access to airport. We didn't use it but there was also a beautiful huge swimming pool

I stay at Valdior most months when in Durban on business. The staff are always friendly, the accommodation clean and comfortable. The location is ideal, a short walk to the beach or to the promenade for a safe 5km run. There is a shopping center, full of restaurants just down the road, which make it ideal. Pricing is more favorable... More

I liked the rooms a lot. I would like a wider variety on breakfast though like egg white only omelette.Otherwise great. It is close to all amenities and especially Gateway. The rooms are spacious. There wasn't something I like least.

Good base for Umhlanga area. Very clean, good internet. A short drive to the beach and local shops and restaurants. Not far from a wonderful promenade for walking/jogging. Huge swimming pool. Curtains could be darker to allow sleeping in for summer!

My wife and I spent three nights at Valdior. The B&B is stunning and close to the Umhlanga Rocks main centre. Zasi is a superb host, the staff were polite and helpful, and the breakfasts superb. I hated the room we stayed in (Room no. 2 Octavia). It was cramped with nowhere to sit except on the bed (if you... More
