6/10 Good

Ok but rather dated. My room was not 4 star
The property is dated and while there was nothing shocking, I was disappointed since it is advertised as a 4 star. The place because it was stuffy and in need of an upgrade (broken tiles in bathroom and dirty silicone in shower), is probably better described as a 2.5 star. Breakfast was tasty though

2/10 Poor

bed begs in room 14
We rented 2 rooms and discovered evidence of bed bugs and dirty sheets with blood stains in room # 14. The other room 12 was acceptable. We discovered problem in rooom 14 around 10:30pm and the reception was not available to assist us because they close their office at 9pm and their emergency cell phones went directly to voice mails. We ended up rented another room in a very nice hotel which was R300 more but it was well worth it. The hotel stuff refused to admit about evidence of bed bugs but i took several pics and their maids admitted not changing all the sheets, however, they were able to give us a credit since we were unable to use room 14. Location is great but i will not recommend this quest house and if you are in Durban, i recommend going with major brand name hotels.

Nice hotel and close to everything.
The B&B is gorgeous inside and out. Very close to a major highway (N3) and a stone throw to downtown Durban's South Beach. The breakfast each morning was great and fulfilling. I had a blast sleep with the view of downtown from my window and waking up to natural sunlight. Overall, a great place for a even great price.
