“Excellent in all ways”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

De Charomoy is the perfect getaway. Our stay at your guesthouse was wonderful and heart warming. The suites are beautiful yet cosy. Breathtaking garden views and a fantastic lounge/bar area all compliments your stay package. And least but not last, we loved the friendly welcome by de Charmoy staff. We will definitely recommend a stay at this wonderful place.

A lovely setting and gardens ideally located a few minutes away from Durban's King Shaka airport. However the room was rather dark and the bathroom was essentially part of the entrance. Comfortable enough, but some of the fittings are rather tired and not all the electric points worked. While the reception staff were friendly and helpful, it all seemed a little chaotic when I arrived and it was difficult to find a parking space that didn't block other vehicles or entrances to buildings.

The personnel were very unfriendly, not customer-oriented, inefficient and very slow. The room was not clean, hairs everywhere. The cupboard (meant for clothes) was used as a kitchenette: the water boiler, tea and coffee were in it. The pool wasn't clean and the space around it looked awful.

Food and staff were really great.Room was well appointed.One point is that the cleaning staff is not doing a good job and Management is not holding them accountable. Eg Bathroom and shower tiles need to be scrubbed and not just wiped down. Headboard had lots of dust.

We booked the Charmoy Estate for one night stopover to the airport, but we were sorry to leave after one night. The complex is fantastic, very nice rooms with lovely beds, clean and neat bathrooms and a lovely wide area were the rooms are situated. The communal area is also very inspiring and lovely decorated. The owners take pride in offering luxury.

We haven't experienced any of the surroundings, so we can't share any tips for sightseeing but for a nights rest on your way to the airport, this really is a great solution. You can make reservations for dinner and breakfast in the morning (or take-away breakfast if your plane is leaving early)

This BnB was extremely convenient for our needs as we arrived in the evening into King Shaka airport and were not first heading to Durban but to Thula Thula game lodge to the north. It is extremely close to the airport and easy to find - and they will collect you if you are not self-driving. Our party of six stayed in three comfortable rooms for the night. Breakfast was very nice(best muffins!) and the estate is on an attractive property with creatures dotted about in pens - not so much of the African type but pets like rabbits, turkeys, geese, guinea pigs, a huge tortoise - didn't want to know what they do with them all but very cute all the same! Highly recommended if you need a convenient airport stopover.
