We had a really enjoyable family stay at An Upper Room. It's a lovely, welcoming, well maintained place, very child friendly, a nice pool for the kids and a fabulous buffet breakfast. Highly recommended.

I really felt comfortable in this B&B. The hosts were fantastic, friendly and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean and the view lovely. The breakfast was the best I have had so far at a B&B in Durban. Highly recommend, thank you Edith and Leon for a wonderful stay!

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.
