Guest Reviews

I honestly can't thank Edith and Leon enough for their kindness whilst we stayed with them, they made us feel so welcome. Our car broke down in Durban during our 2 week tour of SA. They were so kind and helpful, letting us use phones and tools to fix the car.

The place is very clean and tidy, great location. Breakfast is awesome too! Thank you so much!

What I liked over and above the well appointed room and first rate breakfasts, was the warm welcome and consideration shown by the hosts. I immediately felt at home and just loved the tropical garden. Stunning views over the city at night with a full moon rising was a bonus!

I really felt comfortable in this B&B. The hosts were fantastic, friendly and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean and the view lovely. The breakfast was the best I have had so far at a B&B in Durban. Highly recommend, thank you Edith and Leon for a wonderful stay!

We stayed three nights with Edith and Leon and their staff. They were the best hosts we could have. They are friendly, flexible and helpful and made us always feel welcome. The rooms were clean and convenient and the breakfast very good. This is a great place if you want to explore Durban and the surroundings.

Kindest people I have ever met. They should never change. Thank you Edith for being so kind to us. You made it feel like home and it was really nice to be in a place where you are not nervous at all about anything.

During our roundtrip in SA we stayed one night in Durban with Edith and Leon. We arrived in the early afternoon and our rooms were not ready. However we could deposit our bags and Edith showed us the place were to go and to park in Durban city centre.

It's just a short drive to the centre but you fell like in a completely different city.

The view from the accommodation is just breathtaking. Enjoyed a nice sunrise from our balcony. Breakfast with fresh fruits, eggs, sausages, bacon and toast was perfect and delicious.

Thank you for your assistance and thank you for making our stay in Durban to something special.

We had a really enjoyable family stay at An Upper Room. It's a lovely, welcoming, well maintained place, very child friendly, a nice pool for the kids and a fabulous buffet breakfast. Highly recommended.
