Review- McAllisters on 8th Guest House

During World Cup in June 2010 I stayed at McAllisters on 8th (www.8thave.co.za) for 10 days. I stayed with my friend, as we were there to watch football.

McAllisters on 8th is a small B&B located in a very nice area of the upscale neighbourhood of Morningside. It is about a 50 metre walk from Florida Road, where there are many restaurants and Bars- Butcher Boys, Spiga, Taco Zulu, Cubana, MO Noodles adn our favorite, 'Booty Bar' to name a few.

The facility is fenced-in and we felt safe at all times, both at the guest house and in the neighbourhood.

The guest house is a ~1.5 km walk form the new Durban Stadium and maybe 2.5km walk to the beach.

The guest house has several rooms of varying sizes and was very well kept- nicely furnsihed and very clean- the houskeeping staff cleaned daily and does a very nice job. We had some laundry done and it was done quicky and it was very reasonably priced.

Breakfast was outstanding, with a hot plate of eggs, potatoes and other items each day, along with a selection of pastires, cereal, coffee, tea and juice. Very nice!

Elize runs the guest house and she is very nice and very helpful. She offered to drive us a few times to the beach or stadium, but we usually walked.

We found McAllisters on 8th to be a very nice, safe, clean and affordable place to stay, with an excellent location.

Thanks for the review, it is one of the places I suggested so good to hear that people were happy with it. If you haven't already done so, can you please put it in the review section so others can find it. Thanks Kim
