Great service, friendly staff, lovely host and beautiful rooms to boot. I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely return. Better than most so called hotels ive been at. Secure parking and a delicious breakfast. Thats is exactly what you need when on holiday.

We booked to stay at The Upper Room B&B as a result of taking part in a fishing competition in Durban. We required special service in terms of boat parking, deep freezes for fish and bait. We also had to leave at 04h00 to go fishing and Edith and Leon were very accommodating we will stay there again on our next fishing trip.

We were so touched by the kindness, helpfulness and generosity of the owners, Edith and Leon and we will definitely return to their home next time we visit Durban. The position of the guest house is just perfect, only 15 minutes to the beach but with stunning views over Durban, 5 minutes from shopping centres. The ambience is delightful and happy and we can highly recommend their hospitality.

This was our second stay at An Upper Room and it did not disappoint. Edith, and her assistant Connie, are warm and welcoming. Our room was comfortable and cosy with a beautiful view over Durban Harbour. An Upper Room really felt like a home away from home and we will definitely be giving it another visit.

Edith is a wonderful host and made us feel "at home" in her lovely guesthouse. Upper-Room-b+b is situated in a lush garden suburb - the yummy breakfast is served near the poolside. We would love to come back and stay longer!!!

I recently spent some time at the Upper room with my parents and was instantly overwhelmed by the welcoming atmosphere. Both staff and owners are warm, considerate and always eager to go the extra mile in ensuring their guests comfort.

It was a pleasant escape in a beautiful setting!
