Friendly and cozy place to stay.
Had a lovely stay in very comfy bed in nice clean room. Hosts extremely friendly and made us delicious breakfast sandwiches to take away as we didn’t want to eat early. Highly recommend for anyone staying overnight in Durban.

Best place to stay in Durban
Room was spacious with modern amenities. The breakfast included with the luxury room was delicious and filling! Service is accommodating, friendly, and attentive. Area is quiet and I felt safe. Easy to get an Uber to wherever. They can also arrange for a car service, which was great too.
