The Grange Guest House
Ranked #12 of 262 Durban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 16, 2012

We chose The Grange as we were a large family group and their advertising had highlighted their understanding of travel with children. We were made to feel extremely welcome from the moment we arrived and had use of all the facilities to fit in with our varied schedule. Perfect location for visitors to Durban, close enough to the city centre to visit all the attractions or go for business and close to many restaurants to suite every palate.
Annelie, the family and the team are extremely hospitable and efficient. We loved the blend of African art and modern amenities, and really did feel like it was our own home.
Will definitely be staying again on our next trip to Durban

We loved our stay at the Grange Guesthouse. Although we had a short stay, we had a lovely time and we recieved such warm hospitality from the owners.
Our room was very clean and spacious, with a luxury beach house feel. The bathrooms are huge. The beds are so comfy too. The breakfast was the bestest! So tasty!

We really had a great time and we enjoy the Jacaranda suite, we loved the space we had in our room. We received first class hospitality that made us feel at home. The Grange is situated in a very nice and quite area that is close to all amenities, the hosts and the staff were helpful in every possible way. The breakfast was delicious and our rooms were kept clean and smelling fresh everyday and not forgetting the décor its first class. I would really recommend this B&B to anyone as it can be used not only for leisure but for business as well.

Thank you Anneli,Mutari and The Grange staff for making our holiday a pleasant one.

Anne,Sithembiso and Family

This recently-renovated guest house offers, as most travellers have noted, a combination of warmth and comfort. The hosts are tirelessly helpful -- during our stay, I witnessed Hanneli, one of the owners, running around to arrange an anniversary celebration for two guests, including even fire-proof candles, and flowers from the garden. The honesty bar is a typical touch -- my only gripe here being that it had no wine on offer (of course, Durban is not wine country, but what about travellers from foreign climes?). The breakfast, though not as overwhelmingly extensive as some hotel breakfasts, was delicious, the hot food being prepared on the spot. Furnishings are very comfortable, without the flounces and frills that can make some guest houses so claustrophobic, The views of the harbour are pleasant, and the compact garden and large pool impeccable. And don't miss Dube, the ever-in-attendance mixed-breed dog.

Room Tip: Front rooms have a good view of the ocean.

What a lovely stay we had. The hospitality was amazing from the time we arrived and throughout our stay.
We had our 1 yr. old boy with us and he’s hyper active but everyone at The Grange was so helpful. The property is in a lovely area and close to all amenities. The décor is just beautiful. It has inspired me to redo my bathrooms.
