Lovely accommodation with clean rooms & friendly staff. Small parking area at the back, not completely secure, but lots of cars parked on the street. Breakfast was ample & very tasty! Great Indian food just 5 minute walk away. Pool looked really nice, just too cold in August!

A beautiful guesthouse just far enough out to be in a really nice suburb. Staff were amazing and everyone very nice and helpful. Beautiful classic furniture and a nice view over the harbour. Not a problem for us, but there are a lot of stairs to go anywhere, so if you have mobility issues it could be a problem.

Since we were staying as a family we got a great spacious room with terrasse. Quality (incl. quantity) of breakfast was unbeatable. Very kind service, clean place. One of the top ranking places we have been staying while on our frequent and extended journeys in South Africa.

Great location and up the road from the number 1 restaurant. Very quiet area. Lovely colonial home with absolutely stunning breakfast. The manager (sorry for not remembering your name) is just fantastic and very helpful.

Delightful house beautifully furnished in late Victorian style. Impeccable service, great breakfast, lovely garden areas. We found the people there friendly and helpful. One especially nice feature was the number and variety of sitting spaces both indoors and outdoors.

We just left the Goble Palms and wished we could've stayed a bit longer. Service was excellent, very accomodating and friendly. The room was spacious and beautiful. It had a nice view over the city and the sea. The breakfast was good, having it outside on the terrace (with a view of the lovely courtyard) made it even more enjoyable.... More

I think I can add only good and beautiful things to all those written previously by other guests. The room is huge, with a furnished terrace overlooking the city of Durban , on the terrace stands a jacuzzi hot tub ( where we dive almost immediately ). The bed is generous King sizes , (in all) dimensions, blankets and pillows.... More
