The couple that took care us, were wonderfully accommodating and very warm. It is definitely somewhere we will go back to when in Durban. The room was clean and well maintained and its modern yet african charm seamlessly blended together. Wish we had more time to try out the very inviting pool. Hope Dieter and Ola visit us in England... More

I stayed at Hilltop for 2 weeks and it was like a home away from home! Dieter and Ulla is the perfect hosts! Very neat rooms as well as a wonderful breakfast every morning with the perfect view! Also it's only 20min drive from Durban! I would definitly come back anytime!!! Thanks Dieter and Ulla!!!

What fantastic hosts Dieter and Ulla are! I am a regular business traveller, and each year spend many weeks away from home. As a result, I stay in many B&B's, Lodges and Guest Houses throughout South Africa. I recently had the honour of spending two weeks at Hilltop-Durban, and cannot recommend it highly enough! Comfortable and clean rooms, wonderful breakfasts... More

We recently spend hubby's birthday weekend with Ulla and Dieter at this cosy B&B, and couldn't have been happier with our choice! The room was spacious and well appointed, and the bathroom a dream! The garden was a sight to behold - lush, green and inviting - and the view from atop the hill refreshing. We were especially thrilled to... More

I stayed at this inn during the group phases of the World Cup. It was a wonderful experience. The rooms were clean and service was of the highest quality. It is a family run inn and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who like to see the real Durban without paying over the odds.

I came down to South Africa to do some surfing and get some sun. Not only did I get all of that but thanks to all the kind advice given by my hosts I got so much more I most certainly would have missed. Dieter took and interest to my sporting needs and hooked me up with the locals –... More

We stayed with Dieter and Ulla for a wonderful night. They received us with great hospitality. Furthermore they gave us good tips for the trip and we had lovely talks about Durban, Garden Route and other things we should go and see! Breakfast was superb and the location is also superb with a beautiful view. A stay at Hilltop-Durban is... More
