“A really relaxed vibe that is professionally run.”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We booked out the B&B last year for a week and are returning this year again. The 2 houses that the make up the B&B are situated in a really lovely area of Durban suburbs that is far enough away yet close enough for convenience to Durban's center. From start to finish the staff were accommodating, friendly and professional. Breakfasts were standard affair but fresh and tasty. The host take a lot of pride in her business and you can really see this in how well trained the staff are. The only reason I am not giving the accommodation 5* is because the rooms are a little tired looking and in need of a do-over, but if you are not the fussy type, you needn't worry they are perfectly clean.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the opposite side of the road from the main house - I just preferred that so you do...

Thank you for your valued reviiew. Personalised, Professional service is what we are aiming for! Next month Westville B&B will turn 10 years old, and in the interests of continuous improvement, you will be pleased to know that in the past 10 months we have spent in excess of R130 000 on room improvements. Just yesterday we installed a new BIC and caesarstone bar fridge unit; a fresh new look for that room. We look forward to your return.

We go to Durban every year and since 2005 we've been staying at the Westville B & B . We always look forward to going back there as everyone is so friendly and the service is fantastic. The rooms are big and very clean and you can order anything you wish for breakfast. Last year I told Emma that I love scones and the next morning I had a lovely surprise as she had baked some. We were there again recently and she had not forgotten to bake some more.
We are definitely staying there again next year.

Since 2008 everytime I visited Durban on business I have stayed at the Westville B&B. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and nicely furnished. The iron and ironing board in each room have been quite useful.

I have also enjoyed the dinners served in my room: they are well presented and quite appetising. I have always felt very welcome and the breakfast service is discreet but efficient.

The limited number of rooms in each of the houses ensures that the noise factor from other guests is very limited.

Room Tip: If you do not like stairs, specify it when you are booking.

Having stayed at the Westville Bed and Breakfast three times, I continue be amazed by Emma and her incredible team, especially Tania. I travel there with a large group of students and their ability to accomodate our large group but still make me feel like I received personalized service and care is truly not an easy feat. The rooms have individual character but chic at the same time. The location is fantastic, being nestled in one of Durban's most exclusive residential areas but still within walking distance to many amenities. I encourage you to have meals here; Emma, Nick, and their team make the most incredible food, especially when it's a traditional South Africa braai. I am travelling back in January and am looking forward to spending another two weeks in the luxury of the Westville B&B's surroundings!

Although there's technically nothing wrong with the Westville B&B, I wouldn't give it a 5 star rating. I came from another 4-star B&B and then stayed in this one. It didn't have a patch on the 4-star guesthouse. so, if you like rooms with little character and a view of the highway, then this deserves every one of its 5 stars. If you're looking for character and warm comfortable furnishings in a relaxing surrounding, look elsewhere.

Room Tip: I don't think there is one that doesn't have a view of the highway.

Dear Adam, we are devastated that you did not have a positive experience of our B&B. This is our livelihood and we take all feed-back incredibly seriously. The room you were in is one of our most popular ones as it overlooks the pretty garden. Each room is uniquely decorated with the works of a particular artist, in this case, the vibrant artwork of Diego Rivera. We cannot change our location, but we shall definitely review your other comments and see where we can improve. Regards Emma Jacobs: Owner
