          We were warmly welcomed. The green environment gives a natural, fresh feeling. The staff was kind and the service was generally better than the other places we visited in Durban. Hospitality was really good. We enjoyed our stay there.

          I stayed here for 3 nights while visiting UKZN. The hosts were very friendly and looked after you, it felt like staying at a relatives house. Rooms are nice, as is the atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone.

          I enjoyed your coffee the most, it is a pity I cannot buy it from anywhere. I have nothing against the service received, I chose the budget option as it suited my pocket, hence I missed the hot breakfast
