We received a warm welcome from Phil and Allison upon our arrival. Three of us (ladies) checked in to our room which was average. The door leading out to a porch had just recently been replaced and wasnt in good shape. We had a full DSTV bouquet. Our linen was decent and clean but the fan and soap dish holder...

Hi Sindi Thanks so much for taking the time and trouble to review Bumblebees. I'd like to make one or two points: 1) On arrival we apologized profusely that we had not been able to paint the new door as we'd had back to back visitors. We felt an unpainted door was preferable to the lingering smell of paint. I'm...

Philip and Alison are the most wonderful hosts we've ever met! We were a group of eleven with children and grandchildren. They were so helpful and patient with all our needs. Whoever is looking for perfect accommodation, choose Bumblebees B&B

We were only there for a weekend but we felt like we've known Philip and Allison for a long time. We were welcomed and the place felt like home. I'm giving my friends and family contacts stay at the B&B when visiting Durban. Thank you

I am not a fan of B&Bs but have to say the management/owners of this B&B changed my mind about it. I loved the 15 days staying here as it felt like home and they are wonderful people. As a person passionate about service delivery, they exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much Allison and Phillip for making my stay...

Very good service, at affordable price, making business travel convenient & effortless!! Traveling to the region on a regular basis can become challenging if you are unable to secure a convenient affordable stop over at short notice, however our experiences have been very pleasant and we could recommend at any time to make use of the services for future reference.
