We were only passing by three for a night but it was absolutely fabulous. It's a family run B&B, the owner is very friendly, talkative and helpful. The rooms are quite big and spotless. Good brekkie, only that you need to announce the time you wanna have breakfast the night before as she'll prepare it freshly. The owner told us...

Warm and pleasant welcome from Lesley. The place is perfect when one is looking for tranquility. Its definately the place to go for breakaways, very safe and private location. The buffet breakfast was devine, the best of everything. The staff were very friendly and pleasant, especially Lesley and Janine they made us feel at home and they were so pleasant...

We stayed at the Umbrella Tree overnight after the Comrades marathon. It was a pity we only arrived late and had to leave again very early the next morning...but we would definately stay here again . It was close to the airport, easy to find, had a lovely view and was very comfortable. We were especially impressed with how friendly...

A great central place to stay close the Umhlanga main centre and the Gateway shopping centre. Owners and staff are very friendly and willing to assist in any way they can. Would definitely recommend this a place to stay.

Nestled between the busyness of Gateways shopping and the construction at Umhlanga rocks, this is a great place to be! It's a short walk down to the sea for cafes, restaurants and a supermarket. The rooms are pleasant and the breakfast is lovely. Great conversations with other guests under the umbrella trees. Superb owners who really make you feel welcome.

We stayed for over a week and found it a wonderful place to stay, ideal base to explore Durban. The room was great with an amazing view and very comfortable. Breakfast was great and the facilities lovely. Beautiful pool and gardens with great hosts! Can't wait to return.
