Positive Reviews

Accessible Location Next to the Highway

One of the best features that the guesthouse offers is its location, according to the guests. It is very accessible via public transportation as it is located right next to the highway. Moreover, it is also nearby malls and the beach.

Secure and Private Property

Guests enjoyed great privacy and security during their stay. Having a secure parking area really helped in keeping their minds at ease. Additionally, guests also loved the refreshing ambiance that the on-site garden provided.

Great Air-conditioning

Guests expressed their delight upon the rooms’ fully functional had air conditioners. In a warm place like Durban, such is a much-welcomed feature. This allowed guests to have a comfortable stay in their rooms despite the scorching heat outside.

Negative Reviews

Bad Wi-Fi Reception

Guests had some troubles connecting to the free Wi-Fi service provided in the property. The Internet speed was not that desirable and there were moments when they could not connect. Moreover, outside of the main house, it would be very difficult to enjoy the free Internet.

Unfriendly Service

There were repeated reports of poor service, as there were moments when guests were not welcomed warmly and the manager himself was not at his best behaviour at times. Moreover, guests also expressed their disappointment of the deposit fee, which many were not informed about prior to their stay.

Below Par Cleanliness

Guests noted that the housekeeper’s service should be improved. They were disappointed that they still have to inform the staff to ensure that their rooms are cleaned daily. In addition, there was an odd odour from the pillows.
