Such good value for money. Room was tastefully decorated, tidy and clean, even a fussy guest would be pleased. Lovely English breakfast in beautiful garden setting. Restaurants and street café within walking distance. Safe parking and situated in a good neighbourhood.

I travelled to South Africa as a lone visitor for the Comrades Marathon 2016 and the level of assistance, service, friendliness, cleanliness and quality of this establishment is second to none. From my initial email enquiry through to checking out, Lee and Bill were the consummate professional hosts with the added air of friendliness that is so difficult to find.... More

The location is perfect. You can walk at night to bustling Florida Road and it's easy access to everything in the city. Beautiful grounds...very comfortable rooms and the best breakfast ever at a B&B or hotel. And the price was very reasonable for the kind of service and amenities.

I felt safe and secure as a female on my own and I was delighted at how close I was to the stadium where I needed to be... More

Having stayed at Rosetta House two years ago in the room Pistachio in the garden, we knew if we returned to Durban that we... More

My husband, Frank travels a lot and always prefer to stay at B&B as it feels more homely. He wants to complement and thank Lee for the divine breakfasts early every morning. Bill and Lee made him feel at home and very special. The garden is beautiful and the rooms very comfortable. A home away from your own home. Thank... More

We stayed at Rosetta for 3 nights. The room was beautiful and very clean. Breakfast was divine, Lee surprised us every morning with her cooking skills.

I stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip, having a double room to myself. My room was a short walk down the immaculate garden. The room had great facilities and a great kitchen, all I needed to prepare my own food. Bill and Lee made me very welcome and provided everything I could've possibly needed. They prepared a... More
