Positive Reviews

Great views

This B&B offers an enviable location in Pigeon Valley, an urban wildlife reserve. Guests report that the views over the area are stunning with trees, the cityscape and the Indian Ocean all visible on a good day. Some of the rooms also feature a balcony which guests appreciate.

Tasty breakfast

The breakfast served here is a winner. Guests are very impressed with the quality of the food which features eggs, bacon, sausages and fresh fruit among other items. It’s all cooked to order and the owners do their best to meet special dietary requirements.

A home from home

The standard of accommodation at this B&B is first rate. The welcome is warm and friendly and the rooms are nicely decorated and clean. Guests feel very at home here and wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend this B&B to other travellers.

Negative Reviews

Limited parking

One drawback guests found while staying here is the limited amount of parking available. The owners do their best to accommodate everyone but it can be quite tricky finding space for everyone and does involve cars being moved around.

Wi-Fi erratic

Guests mention that the Wi-Fi is a little temperamental at times. It seems that the owners have tried to upgrade the Wi-Fi service so hopefully this issue had largely been resolved.

Dogs in the area

The owners and other households in this part of Durban have dogs for security. While only a minor issue, it does mean that barking can be heard at night on occasion.
