We stayed 4 nights at the end of May 2011 and we loved the quiet position of Essenwoodhouse on the top of the hill only 5-10 minutes away from the city centre with taxy.
The rooms are spacious with balcon or veranda and beautiful view of the small tropical garden and swimmingpool.
At nigth you can see Durban skyline lights and during the day the beautiful indian ocean.
Breakfast is tipical south-african with big portions and fresh fruits.
John, the owner is very gently and helpful in every moment.He can provide to organise the taxy tranfert from the airport to Essenwood if you desire.
Tipp:to move in the city use "Eagles Taxy", they are very efficient and have cheaper rates than other(John can give you more informations).
When we are in Durban Essenwoodhouse will be our choice!!!
