We chose De Charmoy for our first night in SA after arriving in the evening at King Shaka Airport as it is only minutes away. The recpetion was good, rooms were large with good bathrooms. Breakfast was OK. We did not pre-order dinner. As there is no permanent restaurant Priya suggested ordering take away at Nando's (arrived swiftly). Before our... More

I stayed over at this guest house while on a business trip, it was the ideal location from the course I attended which was at Sibaya Casino. The place is so peaceful and its very beautiful. The rooms were so cosy and clean. I enjoyed staying over. The breakfast menu wasn't big but it was very tasty and we were... More

I chose this hotel because I wanted to be in easy reach of King Shaka Airport for a very early check flight. Arriving in the evening it was difficulty to see the grounds and no sooner had I entered reception, than the receptionist whisked me out to direct me to drive car to room. The garden room felt isolated and... More

Thank you for bringing these matters to our attention. We always appreciate all feedback. We have replaced the handle on the window and re-checked all rooms for any potential problems. All of our rooms have private entrances into the gardens and our Security Guard walks the perimeter during the night - he would have not switched off the lights [switch... More

While we appreciated the lift from the airport to the hotel, we didn't appreciate being overcharged and ending up in 2 twin beds with self-catering. The night staff was hurried and you could tell they were working for tips. This place, while probably excellent for business conferences or special events, is not the place to stay as a young couple... More

We stayed here with another couple whilst transiting through Durban Airport, less than ten minutes away. It was our second visit and we found it as good as the year before. Rooms are ideal with all necessary facilities and the staff are unfailingly friendly and helpful. A shame we only had one night here.

We just used this as an overnight rest while we waited to meet friends coming over from Capetown the following day. The room was very comfortable will a four poster bed and they made us a dinner even though we had not booked it in advance. We had hired a car from King Shaka airport nearby but on reflection we...

Traveling excessive is part of my job. The management should be present and take check rounds. I arrived , wanted a swim in the near by pool, but it was so dirty! Terrible.

We stayed at De Charmoy for one night after our flight from Dubai to Durban before continuing our trip by road to Uvongo. It's a beautiful place, green and lush and it hosts quite a few animals including a very old tortoise. The staff were incredibly friendly, breakfast was delicious and they even provided us with dinner as we arrived... More

We stayed here just one night prior to an early flight. This hotel is beautiful, friendly staff and great food. They even organised an airport transfer. Could not recommend this place enough, wish we could staff longer! Price as advertised inclusive of any charges etc.

Great lodge and beautiful garden. Dinner en breakfast very tasty. We stayed here because we took an inland flight from Durban to Port Elizabeth. We had no real expectations but it was one of the best lodges we stayed in, in South Africa. We enjoyed it a lot.
