We noticed some improvements like a security guard and a new water feature. We had the privilege to stay at Petite Provence to attend an athletics competition in Durban in Sept...

Thank you for this review and as per our response below, we are very sorry about the incident of that night when 2 of our guest rooms which had opened windows/doors got broken into. We understand the anger of the clients and our “unresponsiveness” was only utter shock! It was very unexpected as we have been operating for 6 years...
