Thank you Gary and Tosca for the warm service and giving us tips to go around Durban. It was a very good experience staying at the Guest house. The GH is quite central to many attractions and very silent and closed. We really enjoyed the stay here. Cheers, Looking forward to coming back to your GH again.

We really enjoyed our stay. The breakfasts were divine, the room was clean and very comfortable. Gary and Tosca were most welcoming and accommodating. We would certainly make use of their B&B for any future trips to Durban.

Although it was the first time I visited Durban, it felt like we were home at arrival.. The hosts were friendly, the room was clean and the breakfast to die for.. The hosts were always there to assist with any information we needed and that assisted a lot as we we not familiar with the surroundings...

You HAVE to come in this guesthouse if you planned to visit Durban. You'll find two wonderful guests always helpful. Room number 3 was my favourite during my four days stay.
