Recommended Guest House at Umhlanga
I was in Durban for a business trip and have booked Five Burnham for one night. I can highly recommend the place: safe neighborhood, beautiful rooms, pool and roof terrace jacuzzi, good breakfast.... There is really nothing I missed and thanks to Hilary I felt like at home way from home.

Good B&B in Umhlanga and suitable for business
5 Burnham is located close to Umhlanga Rocks and the Unhanglanga Ridge Shopping Mall and very close to the coast. It is a quiet neighbourhood, ideal for B&B and suitable for business purposes. Secure off-street parking and en-suite rooms met my requirements. The breakfast is a great start to the day.
