Goodman took great care of us and offered assistance with making hotel reservations...

The staff and owner are great, great chat, service is great. The location is perfect and the property has a lot of charm. There's a bar with snacks located near an awesome swimming pool that gets a lot of sun. I've stayed here twice now and can't wait to go back

A very nice sprawling property with individually decorated rooms. Very attractive common areas and plenty of space. Great breakfast and a superb honesty bar. Pool. Free wifi. Parking on street but secure as a night watch keeps an eye on the cars. The management is very friendly and staff super competent and accommodating. A real gem in Durban. A few...

We were only here for one night but LOVED the hotel, it's a few colonial houses remodeled and filled with beautiful antiques. Absolutely gorgeous, I wish we could have spent more time there. Goodman was on duty the entire time we were there and offered incredible service, thanks so much!!!
