“Rising Sun Umhlanga”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Stayed with Kathryn and Roger for two weeks returning home yesterday. what a difference arriving in England at 1 deg C after leaving Durban at 28 deg C.

The rising sun is a large guest house with 6 rooms, hard to know which would be the best as all are different.. Kathryn takes great care in choosing and catering for each guests requirements

The welcome from both of them was as warm as the weather and more!! couldnt have been looked after better if it was a 5 star hotel. The view from all the rooms are amazing, overlooking the gardens, swimming pool and the Indian ocean . spoke to several of the guests and saw Kathryn and Roger making sure that all their needs and wants were catered for .

Breakfasts are full English with a South African twist, packed lunches are available and evening meals can be pre-booked. meals were fantastic. The rooms are well proportioned and kept clean and well supplied with linen. tea and coffee were in plentiful supply and each room has a fridge. Well stocked bar with verandah for sundowners.

Local shops are nearby, taxis can be arranged to get to hypermarket nearby and into Umhlanga and Durban. Even saw Roger doing airport runs for guests.

All in all, I cant think a place i'd rather be .If you are going to Durban I defy you to find better value for money >
