“What a lovely stay !”
Reviewed 23 February 2010

We only stayed at the Neuk for 1 night, but we would have been happy to stay longer.
We felt instantly at home in this charming house, the owners are very helpful and we felt at home as soon as we set foot inside.
My first impression was : Wow, this is the doll house I always imagined when I was a child.. It is decorated with taste, and you just feel spoilt staying here, it is very quaint.
The owners went out of their way to make sure that we had a taxi at 05:00AM when we checked-out, as we had a plane to catch, and everything went without a glitch.
The guesthouse is ideally located near to restaurants and bars so you can take a nice walk to dinner/lunch.
Only disappointment was the one night stay, we could have gotten used to our lovely surroundings..

I Booked the Neuk on the fly after fleeing the worst B&B experience of my life (164 Boutique Hotel). I used to live in Durban and the service of the Neuk was a great re-introduction to Durban's down home charm. The service was charming and delightful and the room was dramatically romantic furnished with amusing antques and an *enormous* king size bed with heavenly sheets. Windows on three sides and very quiet and private. Its a great location close to restaurants and shops on Florida as well as a centered in a convenient part of town. All the rooms are beautifully appointed and newly renovated, although one is quite small.

  • Liked — beautful room/great service
  • Disliked — internet flickered a little bit, but still the wireless greatly appreciated!

My family & I stayed in this guest house for one night in September. The accommodation was arranged by the owners of Rosetta House (see my review). The guest house is in a safe residential area, about 5 minutes walk from Florida Road which is where you have lots of restaurants. Its also close to Durban ICC (about 10 minutes drive). and is therefore suitable for corporate visitors as well as tourists. The guest house is run by Haley who is very hospitable & friendly.

We had 2 rooms in this house and they were both beautifully decorated & spotlessly clean.The premises has a lovely garden and pool which you could enjoy in summer.

We had to leave the guest house at 7.45a.m. to catch a flight to Port ELizabeth & were delighted when Haley offered to have a breakfast ready for us at 7a.m. Thanks Haley much appreciated.
Breakfast was substantial, juice, fruit, cereals, tea, coffee, toast as well as a hot breakfast if desired.

Durban had a power outage on the evening we arrived, not a problem at all, showers were still hot & as Haley had provided us with torches we could find everything we needed easily.

Haley had organised a taxi to take us to the airport, when it did not arrive on time she was on to the firm immediately to ask why they had not arrived & to remind them that we were going to the airport. The taxi then arrived promptly following her intervention.


A lovely place to stay, nice and friendly and definitely one I would recommend.
