We recently stayed at Petite Provence B&B for a week. The staff and management were friendly and very helpful. We asked for one or two extra things for our kids and they accommodated us. We loved the delicious breakfasts every morning. The rooms were comfy and we enjoyed the French decor and style. Highly recommend and will be back again... More

My fiancé booked for us to stay at Petite Provence as a surprise for the night of our wedding. He asked for the 'wedding night' package which included a bottle of no name brand champagne, a few Lindt chocolates & some rose petals on the bed. It cost quite a bit extra but looked nice when we arrived. Unfortunately that... More

Jacques and his team always make us feel at home. We have celebrated our past 3 wedding anniversaries at their picturesque and tranquil venue. We feel as if we are in the south of France, without the cost of expensive flight tickets?! The rooms are tastefully decorated and offers a glimpse into a far off land. The staff headed by... More

Recently spent 9 days at Petite Provence and had a fabulous stay. Breakfast superb and staff very friendly and only too happy to assist. Room clean, well serviced and comfortable. Small blips being poor TV reception (a must for Wimbledon) and daytime curtaining for privacy. Hope to be back.

Thank you for posting your review, and we are sorry about the problem with the decoder which has now been changed. We also added a net curtain to that room as the added balcony in front of it called for more privacy... we'd love to have your visit again for an even better stay at Petite Provence! More

This B&B was a total disappointment. The staff are unfriendly and we found Jacques to be particularly rude. The facilities certainly don't match the descriptions on the website. We stayed in the Laurier room and were not happy with the cleanliness or level of furnishings and linen. I would not recommend this property at all.

Clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. I will definitely choose this B&B again. The owners and staff are very friendly and flexible. The breakfast was outstanding, and the accommodation very comfortable. I especially like the fact that it is close to the airport and major shopping centers, but not in the busy bustle of Durban. The atmosphere is quite and serene.

We stayed here on our wedding night and the night after. We booked the cigale room as other reviews seemed to indicate it had the most privacy, and a nice deck sitting area outside that the others didn't. Overall it was a nice stay and while the weather wasn't nice enough for us to use the pool and the outside... More

thank you for your detailed review, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay altogether. Regarding the shower problem, we had received a complaint about a tingling on the tap before and sent the electrician to fix it, thinking all was sorted, we were taken by surprise hearing the problem was still there, so we have now completely re-wired the...

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at Petite Provence in the Laurier room. The whole establishment is like stepping into the South of France - the gardens are absolutely stunning, beautiful palm trees and with a very good pool. There are ample comfy sunbeds set under the trees so no need for extra umbrellas. It is very tranquil... More

My wife and I spent the second half of our honeymoon in the honeymoon suite of Petite Provence. The whole building is stunningly finished. We felt very welcome upon arrival. It is walking distance from a great strip of beach. The breakfast was simply amazing. I think we over-ate almost every morning because there are so many delicious foods on... More
