It was a wonderful stop over on our trip to Durban. It was that we expected and more. We will definately be returning for a stay over at the Quarry Lake Inn in the near future. We breakfast was fantastic and the ladies who served us were amazing

Service and rooms were great. Size of rooms was nice. rooms were equipped with microwave and fridge. Breakfast was disappointing as it was the same menu daily not much variety. Fruit juices need to be desperately changed.

A welcome retreat after a very long year. Were made to feel at home. The rooms were cleaned daily, bar fridge stocked, and the information booklet was very informative. We enjoyed every moment. We will be returning.

The service received was excellent and the room is clean and spacious. This is a great venue at a great price (even though it was peak season). Very highly recommended. I will return again when visiting East London.
