Very friendly and welcoming hosts. Comfortable beds and good quality furnishing and great shower and bathroom. Breakfast were fantastic. Only criticism is that there was only one small window and room was dark.

I recently stayed here for two nights , it's set in a rural background with many trees , pool , paved paths , and the host Johnny Lombard is easy to talk to , and unflinching to make sure you enjoy your stay . Breakfast is very generous , and delicious to go with it , I never had any other meals there ...although they are available , one would expect them to be outstanding also .My room was of a decent size , the bathroom was always clean and tidy , will certainly stay there again when in Durban, no problem whatsoever .
