The lodge is very clean, neat, and quiet (even the guinea fowl seem to be quieter here than elsewhere!). Dinner on the evening is simply brilliant and the care and attention to detail is very evident. There is a good variety for breakfast with your choice of eggs and sides along with cereals, yoghurt, fruit coffee, etc. If you require...

We stayed over for only one night on business. The room was very clean, the bathroom spacious and the water really hot, which is good in winter! The linen were of good quality, the matress like new. Breakfast was excellent (try the sausage) and the staff friendly. Safe parking. If I could make a suggestion, it would be to get...

This lovely guest house is situated in a suburb of Ladysmith and I can honestly say in 35+ years of travel its one of the best places I have ever stayed in. The food was delicious and what was great was the long table that single people were invited to sit at and feel part of the group. The rooms...

This sweet little dwelling is a place where you feel as comfortable as you do in your own home. Its the perfect spot for a business trip and I wouldn't mind staying there should I ever need to do so with the family. I have stayed there a few times already and the service is always so warm and welcoming....

Durnford lodge is a simply furnished guest house/ B&B offering "home away from home" accommodation. The room I stayed in toward the front of the property served its purpose. It had a television with a satisfactory choice of channels, free wifi, hairdryer and en-suite bathroom with bath and shower. The mattress was ok (perhaps needs to be turned), linen perfectly...
