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

Our room was very comfortable and this and the bathroom were reasonably well appointed. The shower, with no curtain or screen left the bathroom floor very wet and slippery every time it was used - a screen or enclosure is really needed. The approach to the room from the car park required a lot of steps - difficult for the... More

Thank you for your review of your five night stay at our guest house. I must admit I was quiet surprised at the amount of negativity mentioned here as it did not appear that you were unhappy during your stay, Unfortunately I really am unable to do anything about the five steps at the side of the house and the...

We stayed in Saffron House on our way from St. Lucia to Underberg for one night. It's not necessarily a 4* place but we booked through hostelworld and didn't expect a really posh place. The rooms were neat and lovely decorated. The TV could have been a little bigger :-). The breakfast was good and the owner made great efforts... More
