A joy and a delight to stay at Durban View Guesthouse. This will be the first of frequent visits. Dave and Llewellyn couldn't do more to make one's stay special and relaxing. The decor is pleasant and tasteful and the attention given to guests is warm and attentive without being obtrusive. Highly recommended. RICHARD, NAMIBIA

I have stayed in all the rooms at the Durban Stadium View Guesthouse often and have enjoyed every one - excellent rooms, beds, service ..... Dave and Llewellyn are always welcoming and I will stay here each time I can. Thanks for the wonderful place and for opening your home to be that true "home away from home".
