    Simple, elegant, clean, and a great location if you need to do some work around Umhlanga or at the Ridge, or just want to relax for holiday. Beds and pillows were super-comfortable. Views are good. Lovely atomosphere. I just loved the place.

    It was a lovely setting, peaceful the owner was always available and on hand. Really hands on and great. The suite was comfortable and clean. Would have liked a better view of the sea but had a lovely garden with pool to look at.

    We stayed over for one evening. We had everything we needed and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was disappointing. We will not visit again as I feel I can get better value for my money.More

    So sorry to hear you were disappointed with the breakfast. I am so surprised because we do receive a lot of compliments about our breakfasts. I can't remember what you had for breakfast or if you requested something we didn't offer. But for the sake...More

    Delightful rooms overlooking the sea,delightful breakfast and charming host. Thanks, Lesley sorry we couldn't stay longer. Traffic and road construction around Durban is currently horrendous, without the excellent direction instructions, we would have had a big problem

    We enjoyed our stay. The room had all the amenities we needed and was clean. The breakfast was great and the views awesome. It is centrally located and within a few minutes from both the beach and Gateway
