We were duped. The high price led us to believe it would at least have working Internet. Plenty of nicer plans for 1/3 the price. The room smell is masked with plugin air freshener. Management seems uninterested in upkeep and it is doubtful this place had a heyday. I can't recommend this place for any occasion work or holiday.

I stayed there with some colleagues on a short business trip. Check-in was efficient. The rooms are large and comfortable. Sufficient parking. We all ordered different desserts and it was very well made.

I had to fly in for a quick bussiness meeting and was looking for a basic place to overnight. Sica's was reccommended by a friend and I'm very impressed. The price, with breakfast included, was well worth it and below some of the others in the area. The room was neat, staff friendly and helpful. Safe parking and spacious room... More

Our second time at Sica - our first having been cut short by bad luck in another part of Durban (a result of the crime situation in South Africa not at all connected to Sica). The fact that owner, Janus, went above and beyond to ensure our second trip was perfect speaks volumes. The guest house is elegant (but not... More

I often stay at Sicas and always look forward to going back! It is family run which makes a big difference and the family members are always available to sort out any requests. The rooms are pristine, the gardens and pool area are lovely and the food is simply delicious! The staff are a treat and nothing is too much... More

Very welcoming staff all friendly, good food and atmosphere. Very clean and comfortable. Located in a quiet area, local shop nearby and main shops a short drive. Books up very fast and is nearly always full. Does a lot of conferences and weddings.

The place is beautiful, clean and has nice gardens. Staff at the reception is very helpful. The food is tantalising, mouth watering and succulent. The parking is secure close to the garage and shop for little shopping.

We had our Blessing here in October after getting married in U.K. I used to play tennis here when I was much younger and so it was just like going home. The service was brilliant, staff friendly, venue beautifully appointed, food outstanding, grounds so scenic and perfect for a wedding, would recommend it to any couple looking for a wedding... More

We planned our holiday to South Africa months in advance and could not wait for December to come. We started our vacation in Durban where we stayed at an amazing Guest house for 4 days, Sicas Guest House. Everybody was just amazing. The hospitality was unbelievable and we cannot thank everybody enough for making our first stay in South Africa... More

We recently attended a company Christmas function at Sica and whilst the venue was great and safe etc., but oh heavens the food was similar to eating cardboard! No passion - no flavour - basically URGH! More so that some of our staff were Muslim and had pre-ordered Halal dishes so when their first dish arrived with salami on it,... More
