Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 4, 2013

I found the service was good and the food presentation and quality was good.
my room was excellant and clean and comfortable.
Bath towles should be changed daily, and a curtain should be added on the window facig the street, as when you are changing, one could see in from the street.

Dear Calvin

As you had a room overlooking the road it must have been room 8. There are no curtains as they are dormer windows however there are roller blinds at the windows for privacy instead. I am so sorry that you did not see them. Perhaps I am at fault for not pointing them out to you

I returned to Roseland House because of the quality service it provides. The rooms are tastefully decorated, the beds are comfortable and the management accommodates special needs, whether dietary or health related (non-allergenic bedding, in my case). The staff are welcoming and the location is very convenient for visitors to the University of KwaZulu-Natal and the finest restuarants in Durban. Glenwood is an attractive, safe suburb and many residents can be seen jogging and walking in the early morning and evening. I heartifly recommend the Guest House, whose rates are reasonable and customer care comes first. It is ideal for small conferences or workshops.

This hotel is exclusive, it is good for business poeple to sleep over, however i feel like it is actually a bit isolated, like you have to drive to find a place to buy food. Myb it would be better if they serve dinner as well. but all is excellent, the service is very good.

Hi Dorothy
Thank you for the response. Just to let you know that should you wish to have dinners included we do serve a 2 course meal and a cold drink in the evenings but it must be ordered beforehand. Hope we see you again sometime soon
Kind Regards

I consider Roseland House one of the most convenient places to stay in Durban. It is situated at 1 min drive from the N3 Highway, approximately 15 min from the M4 Highway (the one along the coast) and 5 min from the University Campus for those who are interested. Moses Mabhida Stadium as well as Kings Park Stadium (rugby stadium) are 15 away by car. Supermarkets and nice restaurants are very close (some at 5 min walk and others at 10 min drive). One can walk around the area which is quiet, lovely and safe.
Rooms are lovely and breakfast is great. Delia and Warren are very friendly and helpful.
I will definitely stay at Roseland House whenever I go to Durban !

Breakfast is great. The hosts Delia and Warren become like old friends immediately. Warren is very funny! Great stories! They welcome you to their lovely house and take good care of you.
The house is conveniently located in a lovely, safe area of Durban. You can walk to restaurants and shopping. Our room was lovely with a veranda overlooking the pool. I'll always stay there when I go to Durban. It will be like going home!
