We paid a little bit extra and had the honeymoon suite as the reviews said it had a shower and a bath. The bath was more than big enough for the two of us but the shower had to be held as there was no fixture to actually use it as a proper shower! Some reviews said the mattress was... More

My partner and I enjoyed every bit of our stay at Petite Provence. It was truly a little France. Just a walk away from the beautiful beach. Lovely garden and the most luxurious rooms. The staff, Jacques, Sphindile and Miriam were absolutely amazing hosts. Thank you so much for the wonderful hospitality. Hope to be back soon. Thandi and Thomas

We have been here a few times now and just love the location and the feel of this BnB - we keep coming back :) Close to the beach, but away from the main road and 'hub bub'. So peaceful. Our 2 yr old played for ages in the garden while we sat under the shady trees. The newly renovated... More

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.
