We had an amazing time.. Great hospitality from the owners and staff. Had a great time and would love to stay at the Durban View Guest House in the future again. I felt right at home and the guest house had a friendly feel about it. Great room and social area!!

Durbanview Guesthouse is one of the nicer places I've stayed at recently, in terms of value for money. It is in a nice neighbourhood, close to where you would want to be in Durban. My room had wonderful views of the city, and the hosts are incredibly friendly and helpful. You feel like you are a special guest in someone's...

As a predominantly gay guest house, it lacks in certain amenities which are essential to a gay man's comfort and cleaning requirements.
