We only stayed here one night. People were friendly and helpful and the rooms were small but clean and tidy. Great value for money. It's a small walk or drive to the nearest restaurants and shops so would recommend taking a car. Would stay here again!

All was ok, except that the family room I was in didn't have a closed up door for the 2nd bedroom. Very bad for two adults with partners, hence this needs to be explained. properly before money is committed. Also the price is per head, which is strange considering that people use the same bed.

The confirmed booking was for two single people, each with their own bedroom sharing a bathroom. The Family Suite has a door between the two bedrooms. After the two single people checked in we discovered a third person in the suite on the first night and two additional people on the second night More

I have recently stayed over at Sylvan Grove for one night and can recommend this guest house. Spotless room with comfortable bed, good linen, amenities, bar fridge and free wi-fi.

The hosts are simply magnificent and the breakfast has a wonderful variety and is always fresh. The guesthouse is very clean and on a quiet street which is also an excellent starting point for a run. If you want a "home away from home" feeling when you travel then I can really recommend Sylvan Grove

Great food. Nice variety is offered on the breakfast menu. Comfortable and clean rooms. Friendly, helpful and well presented staff. Location isn't bad, but is missing that amazing ocean view. Thank you!

An amazing experience The owners Chris and Gill is creating a real away from home environment. Highly recommended! It feels like you are at home when you are on a business trip and the breakfast is wonderful!

Spotless and comfortable room with lovely en suite. Beautiful garden & pool. Quiet and secure. 20 minutes from King Shaka airport and 2 minutes from restaurants in Umhalanga so ideal before an early flight. Jill provided us with a packed breakfast as we had an early start.

It was an unplanned stay however it was very comfortable and friendly people made it a welcomed stay over. Great area, would definitely bring my wife with and stay again if we come out that way for holiday.

It is the ideal venue to get to following a day's work. Quiet and excellent service. My experience is that it feels as if you are returning home after a long day at the office. The Breakfast caters for everyone's needs.
