Warrens Guest House
Ranked #2 of 19 Hillcrest B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Warren's Guest House compares very well to many four and five star guest houses I have stayed in and comes highly recommended. The rooms are spacious, very well equipped with bar fridges, microwaves and safes, large flat screen tvs and very comfortable beds.

This is real value for money, with the added bonus of a lovely breakfast. There are many good restaurants in the area and if you are into shopping, great shops as well. Cynthia, the manager is very friendly and helpful and has mastered the art of being the perfect host.

I would most definitely return to Warren's Guest House!

South Africa in my experience has many truly excellent and cheap guesthouses and this is another. About 8 characterful rooms and cottages are arranged around a lovely garden and pool. The breakfasts are excellent and there is a pub/bar operating on an honesty basis at very reasonable prices. The room rates are also cheap, the manager very accommodating and the staff friendly and dedicated. There are big TVs, safes in each room, wifi and a communal lounge.

I would add only two notes of caution: firstly, if you are wanting to explore Durban from here, a car is basically essential and the journey is quite long - 45 min plus - so you may spend a lot of time driving in and out of Durban especially at busy times. Second, the guesthouse has a dog that really does not smell good and sometimes bit those that went near its bed. (NB the dog does not go in the rooms - but does go in the lounge and bar).

Room Tip: The website has excellent descriptions of each room, they're all quite different and the best on...

We have used Warrens on many occasions over the past five years and have always been made very welcome by Cynthia. Pool is always immaculate and rooms likewise. Sincerely recommended. (Paul Close, UK)

When I first visited Warrens in Hillcrest 3 years ago, there had been a recent change in ownership. I could sense a few uncertainties, but the new owners were enthusiastic and learning their way. There are not many options in this most attractive community, just 40 ks west of Durban with cooler air. I returned this year for my second visit. This remains my favourite guest house in South Africa. Here are my reasons. 1. Off the busy road and quiet. 2. Beautiful garden and swimming pool. 3. Friendly efficient staff. 4. Safe parking. 5. Spacious comfortable rooms with good TV choices and efficient showers. 6. Excellent breakfast with generous choices. 7, Walking distance to good pubs and restaurants. 8. GREAT VALUE!

Room Tip: Do check out their web site which includes photos of the rooms.
