My friend found this B&B online and lesson learnt - never judge a book by its cover. The website and images (professional) lay claim to warm, inviting and gracious accommodation. What we discovered upon our arrival was certainly not what was presented on the website and in the accompanying images. We arrived quite late (Richard was very accommodating in this...

As a child friendly and pet friendly establishment, we found every thing to be superb. We have stayed numerous times and have never had a bad experience. The hosts Robyn and Richard, and their 2 young children were fantastic. We stayed over Christmas time and the hosts went way above our expectations to provide a fantastic Christmas lunch, with every...

Friendly, approachable and accommodating from the first booking, we felt at home from the moment we arrived. With normal family life going on around, you instantly feel part of the surroundings. The Guesthouse is ideally placed for restaurants in Ballito and, more importantly, is a very short drive on superb roads to the new King Shaka Airport - early morning...

I was very confused by this B&B, I had done extensive research and all looked good for a nice B&B stay, but unfortunately the reality did not live up to the website or TA reviews. The property is slightly run down and has a slight feel like staying at your elderly Grandmother's. The room and bathroom had both seen better...

My wife and me stayed at The Guesthouse for one night during our road trip. It is a wonderful colonial house with a fantastic beach view. The room was very clean and the large bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding. Robyn provided us with fresh fruits, eggs and cereals. There was nothing missing. We can strongly recommend this...

We had a lovely holiday with Robyn and Richard as our hosts. They were most accommodating and not afraid to be flexible and go the extra mile! As a family we were made to feel welcome and like it was a home away from home!

I repeatedly request to stay at this clean, comfortable & relaxing environment, with scenic views & hospitable hosts, where nothing is too much effort, to ensure one has the closest thing to home, when away, either on business or pleasure.

All though we were visiting for Business and not a holiday we felt like it was a Holiday indeed, The staff members of The Guest house were very friendly and helpful to all our needs...The owners of The Guest house Robs & Rich are probably the nicest and most loving people you will ever meet. We would recommend any Company...

Whatever happened in the past with the previous owners is definitely over. The new owners are lovely people. Robyn is absolutely cut out for this job. She is very social and immediately makes you feel at home. We got lots of advise on things to do in the area and she even suggested to call herself for availability on other...
