Very nice B & B - only problem is the parking which is awkward especially if there was a full house. Monkeys are an irritation but can't do much about it. Excellent and very generous breakfast but can't do much about it Excellent breakfast

What a beautiful b&b! It's in a perfect location, a walk away from the umhlanga village. Breakfast in the morning was delicious! Great value for money especially for a short term stay. Would definitely visit again!

I had my Personal Assistant book at this B&B and she advised them that I would be arriving late as I would be seeing customers on the way down from Johannesburg. My PA advised me that I should call Ann on arrival to get the keys as their reception closed at 7pm during school holiday peak season. At 9.45 pm... More

I would like to respond to this guest as the facts as he states them are definitely not true. First of all we were not given any indication of arrival time. When I phoned the guest to ask where he was as it was now late at night and not a hotel with 24 hour reception. I asked the guest... More

It's not terrible, we just feel the bedrooms are tiny compared to how they look in the photos. It's very cramped. Cold tap didn't work and we still not sure if you are even allowed to swim in the pool. Overall a bit disappointed with what we got.

I only stayed briefly at Tesorino B&B and didn't spend much time in my room. The room had all the amenities that you would expect from a top-quality hotel: comfortable king-size bed, working desk, cupboard with ample hangers (something some 5-star hotels never get right!) and shelves, small safe, kettle with tea coffee tray, including delicious rusks, good powerful hairdryer,...

We loved staying at Tesorino, nice quiet suburb walking distance to the beach and a shopping centre. Management went over and above in arranging breakfast packs for our early departure. The cappuccino's, hot chocolate and rusks were a real treat :-) We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed in a room above the breakfast room - we could hear people talking from downstairs and so presumably they could hear whatever we were doing in our room. The smell and the sound of cooking fried food first thing in the morning is not the greatest - they need extraction fans and sound insulation. It is also a... More

Dear Jeanette, I am very sad and sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. The two standard rooms above the breakfast area are my smaller more inexpensive rooms which some travellers do not mind the inconveniences you describe as they are able to stay in a good location within walking distance to the shops and...
