Nice walk up the beaches and coastal forest as well as shopping centre. Public transport was not great. Best if you have a car. I would certainly... More

Kingston House is situated just over the M4 from the Umhlanga Beach. It was a cosy, comfortable and clinically clean place, run by a warm host, Howard, his family and friendly and accommodating staff. My little nieces and I stayed in 3 single beds in a King Suite and we felt like roommates😄. I booked at very short notice and... More

Excellent location. Very warm and friendly owner and staff. Serene and peaceful environment. The room was lovely, and great food. The B&B is also located close to great social amenities, such as Gateway Mall, McDonalds and other eateries.

The rooms are clean and cosy.. a home away from home feel. Scrumptious freshly prepared breakfasts are served every morning in the dining area filled with laughter and chats. just loved it.

We spent our first 6 nights in South Africa at Kingston House B&B and couldn't have been more pleased. We stayed in a little annex building, behind the house, which offered plenty of room to spread out. The backyard was very pretty with a decent pool and cabana area, which I enjoyed sitting out at in the evenings, after a... More

We had the elephant room and would definitely book this and look no further next time we're in Durban.

We stayed with Howard and the Kingston House team prior to a cruise. 4 nights at Kingston was just what we needed to prepare us. Kingston has everything you need. Friendly unobtrusive staff, beautifully appointed guest suites, great pool and stylish common rooms. We always felt comfortable and welcome.
