We stayed as a couple for the weekend. We'd taken an uber to Saffron house from the airport so we were without our own transport for the duration of our weekend stay. Check in was painless and quick and the rooms were well-appointed and overlooked the pool. We were relieved to find that Saffron House is fairly close to the... More

We stayed two nights at Saffron House, the room was lovely and clean and opened on to the pool area. Ian and Jenny were very helpful and breakfast was lovely, laundry service was excellent and the wine selection available was great.

Myself and my Fiance stayed here for 2 nights during January 2015, very quite and private for a B&B and loved it. Would recommend to anyone who likes staying in a B&B. Breakfast was good and the pool could be kept cleaner.

Saffron House is a beautifully maintained guest house situated in the heart of Salt Rock. Within minutes of the beach and amenities. The rooms and bathrooms are very comfortable with your own tv and mini bar! Our hosts Ian and Jenny were extremely helpful and charming and nothing was too much. We were waited on hand and foot at the... More

I've stayed here before. Its just as great as remembered. Very comfortable rooms, great showers and yes all the reviews about the breakfast is true, its a spread. Best rooms here are the three tucked away in the back of the property overlooking the pool.

Just one night in this nice B&B is too short. The host Ian, was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortabel, the beach was on walking distance. But the best part of our stay was the next morning: at breakfast we had the best French toast (with cinnamon and Sugar) ever!

We were travelling in two couples with a toddler. Very comfortable stay. Squeaky clean. Serviced. Breakfast included (decent spread). The hosts were very very helpful and welcoming. They were very earnest in their recommendations. Beach was a short walk from our accommodation. And what a beach, brilliant waves and it also had a tidal pool. Great experience

A lovely cosy guest house in Salt Rock with a beach only a short walk away and a couple of good local restaurants. We spent 6 days here and despite not having a car we were able to use recommend tour guides to explore Kwa Zulu Natal - highlights were the Drakensburg Mountains, Hluhluwe Safari Park and St Lucia Wetlands....

I arrived late and had to go to the airport very early. Ian was very helpful and even made me a breakfast on the go when he noticed I had an early flight to catch. Room is clean, huge bathroom and I like the wooden balcony in front of the room. The only thing I missed was a desk in... More
