“A very pleasant B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2012

I've stayed at Garland Place several times while attending a trade show in Durban and have always been extremely pleased. On the last occasion they even collected us from the airport for far less than a commercial transfer would have cost. The property is located within walking distance to the Musgrave shopping centre and is convenient to many of the Durban attractions. It's location in a near suburb is ideal as it's a short taxi ride to the Convention Centre, beach areas and local restaurants. The staff was wonderful, could not have been better and the managers and owners are super friendly. You come as a guest and leave as a friend.

The breakfasts are great and include some of the natural health products that the owners sell and they will tell you all about the benefits. I requested oats porridge for breakfast before I got there and on arrival they had my favourite brand in stock and cooked it to perfection each day. The common areas are large and airy with a slightly Victorian feel about the decor and the gardens are nicely done. The wireless is fast, they just ask that you don't stream videos or other large files, which is fair. Guest rooms are clean and cheery and configured with twins, double or larger beds, there are only about four or five rooms max. so you get to know your fellow travellers. All in all I highly recommend this place if you like staying at a B&B as opposed to a big city hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and some have bathtubs. Choice depends on the number of people in your room...
