Reviewed August 8, 2010

I stayed at Ntengu Lodge twice during the World Cup and it was by far the best accomodation I stayed in during one month in SA.

The large air-conditioned rooms are spotless and individually decorated. Everything is very well attendend. Andrew is the most helpful host who provides you with his service virtually day and night. His staff is also very kind and attentitive. They serve very creative and tasteful breakfast variations of English breakfast.

The windows in the dining hall and living room to the deck are almost always open and you can move freely through the whole welcoming complex. It takes you three steps from your deck room into the swimming pool that is surrounded by african plants.

The lodge locates in a quiet and beautiful green residential neighbourhood outside the city centre of Durban. It is about a 10 to 15 minute taxi ride from the centre/beach front (150 ZAR). The area is perfectly safe and you can walk around (also at night) without worrying.

There is a small shopping centre within a five minute walking distance. There you'll find two supermarkets, an internet café, a gym that offers day passes, ATMs etc. There is also a beautiful restaurant (Nourish Café) and an Irish Pub.

A large shopping mall (Pavillion) is a 5 minute car ride away.

I highly recommend Ntengu Lodge!

The Ntengu Lodge is a 5 Star B&B located in the Westville area of Durban. This is a very safe residential area situated only 5 minutes from the N3 on th north side of Durban & only 15 minutes from the airport. There are some excellent restaurants within 5 minutes.
The property is owned & run by David Buchanan who is the most wonderful host. The rooms are very well appointed with extremely comfortable beds. Internet access is feely provided.There is a residents lounge which opens onto a considerable swimming pool. The views through the trees looking down over the City are spectacular.
David willingly provides advice on local restaurants & bars & makes all your reservations. His breakfasts are a wonderful work of art & very substantial.
This is a B&B which is well above the average, we highly recommend it.
