My stay was pleasant. Alma called me before my arrival to make sure that I can find the place and to confirm my arrival time. The room was much better than that of a hotel, it was spacious, elegantly decorated and welcoming.

Hotel on the main road to durbanville, close to restaurants and shopping. My visit was short as I had business nearby. Happy to get an accomodation there in short notice. Small breakfast buffet, enough for the business traveller.

I stayed at Dark Chocolate Guest House on a few occasions in the last few months (August - October 2016) for business. I found the rooms comfortable and clean, the hospitality of Alma & Dannie warm, helpful & accommodating (early breakfast...). I had dinners there as well, and it was always great. Thank you! will definitely stay here again.

Could not have chosen a more suitable Guest House for my 2 night stay in Durbanville. Secure on-premises parking, complimentary upgrade to fabulous room 6 that was 5*. I echo Wendy W's review - spot on! A big thank you to Alma and Danie for your incredible hospitality and no prizes for guessing where I'll be staying in future..
