When I read all the review I thought this would be a good overnight for a business trip. The B&B is tired and in need of a good clean. I had read through all the wonderful recommendations and wondered if this was the same place. The person I was with walked barefoot from the shower to the bed and found...

Dear Iamriva, Thank you for the feedback. We pride ourselves in our cleanliness and strict room and housekeeping checks and in January this year we attended to professional cleaning of all our carpets, so I am disappointed that they are needing cleaning so soon. Our policy for carpet cleaning provides that they were due to be cleaned again in June...

We were in town for graduation and needed a central location with easy access to amenities. What hospitable and attentive staff. Rooms were lovely and clean. Attended to all our requests. We felt very at home. I forgot some things at the hotel and they kept it aside for me until I could collect. Breakfast service could do with some...

A great guesthouse tucked away in a residential area. Good value for money and a great place if you want to be away from the noise of bars and restaurants These are just a short and cheap taxi ride away.

Located in Durban's Morningside it's close to everything and still in a really quiet neighbourhood. Tastefully renovated property with matching interior design and style. What's more there's a great breakfast included in the price. Reception and all other staff are very friendly and responsive to any reasonable wish.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Originally the home of Corobrick founder Robert Storm who built it in 1892, the guesthouse is steeped in Durban history and retains much of its old world charm. The 15 bedrooms are individually decorated in a classically elegant style with some having a view over the century's old St James church while others look over the hotel's peaceful garden patio. Being close to the trendy eateries of Florida Road, Durban's beachfront, major sports stadiums (Kings Park and Moses Mabhida Football Stadium), golf courses and Jameson and Mitchell Parks means all Durban's attractions are just a short drive away. The guesthouse is ideal for small meetings, conferences and private dinners and is well equipped to ensure business runs smoothly and efficiently. For business guests, the guesthouse is well-placed for access to the ICC, as well as quick freeway access to the Umhlanga Ridge precinct. ... more   less
