The Grange Guest House
Ranked #10 of 256 Durban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Stayed here with my parents in the 2 bedroom suite. It was lovely & fresh, with white walls, modern ethnic art & a lovely swimming pool. The breakfast was delicious (amazing filter coffee). The front bedroom had fantastic sea views. We enjoyed using the swimming pool & it was very quiet & didn't feel like it was in a city despite being in such a convenient location. Excellent value for money.
I'd definitely come here again!

The guest house is beautiful, full of flair, artworks and elegance, with great sea views. The hosts are lovely and very helpful. We've been staying at the Grange several times, in different rooms. Each stay has been perfect.

I dont normally write review's but in this case I felt I should. The Grange is a perfect little guest house. Lovely clean rooms, nice pool to relax by, super friendly and welcoming owner (annelise) and a superb breakfast to top it off. If i ever have the opportunity to stay in Durban again i would book here without any hesitation and would even recommend it to my mum, now that takes some doing!

If you are looking for an apartment in Durban, this place is a good choice. The rooms are nice, the owner and her staff just great. The breakfast is delicious and drinks always available in the fridge.

If you wanna make a beach holiday you need a car to go to the beach but it only takes around 10 minutes to go there.

I would have brought the most wonderful bed I have ever slept in back to my bedroom. This place is absolutely fantastic, from the monemt you ring the doorbell and steps into these wonderful decorated luxurios rooms, Wauv!
You are met by the perfect host - and the housepet Dubay! - the lovely dog very affectionate.
The building is restored perfectly, wonderful doors, closet and furniture and the bathroom - i could have stayed much longer - i felt at home.
Ofcourse free wifi and coffee in the room - or maybe a cup of expresso or cappucino on the terrasse overlooking the pool.
Breakfast is tasty with lost of serials, fresh juice and cooked breakfast. The Grange is up hill, but only 10 min walk downtown to nice restaurants and shopping.
Do yourself a favour - book The Grange - go for the luxuryroom. It is beautifull.
We thank you The Grange for 2 great days in Durban.

Room Tip: The luxury room on 2.floor

Thank you for your very kind review! My little Dube loves getting attention from all the visitors, she likes having a guest house I think!

I'm glad you enjoyed the bed, the company contacted me recently and I was able to tell them that I had given the manufacturers details out to several guests living in South Africa who wanted to buy them after staying here, I hope you find something similar in your home country!

Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again one day.

The Grange is fantastic! It is beautifully decorated, each room individually designed so you don't feel like its an impersonal hotel. It's spotlessly clean, the bathroom was amazing, great views to the ocean. The breakfast is to die for (I'm vegetarian and it was not problem). Anellie is the perfect host, she is welcoming and attentive, but not intrusive and she made us feel at home.... I would definitely recommend The Grange to everyone.

I was in Durban for over 5 months and i stay in many accommodation. The Grange guest house is 'De Best ' accommodation i have stayed in Durban. It is located in a nice quiet neighbourhood with good security system. It is a perfect location for all travellers, business, leisure and family. The guesthouse itself is clean , modern, neat with natural light through out the house. Swimming pool is situated in front of the roomy balcony which allows to enjoy the beautiful view while you are having your meal. Room is spacious and clean, and the bathroom is excellent !!!!! Most importantly is the service offered in The Grange which made my stay very pleasant. Owner Annelie Wada is a wonderful lady with bubbly personality, she made her guest feel like being at home and unconditional help is definitely extra bonus. Pre-booked dinner can be arranged and the food was exceptional. Unforgettable experience and will definitely go back to The Grange next time when i go to Durban, strongly recommended!!!!!
