My husband and I just returned from South Africa and while in the Durban area, we stayed at 29 On The James. What a lovely b&b! It's situated in a quiet neighborhood, conveniently located just outside of Durban, in the suburb of Westville, just off the N3 - about a 15 minute drive from the city. We stayed in the Oxford Suite which was clean, roomy, had a very comfortable bed, a kitchenette, large bathroom and a nice patio which overlooked the city. We also had a great internet connection in our room. The entire b&b is tastefully decorated and the owners, Val and Barry, as well as Heather Jean their administrator, were absolutely wonderful and inviting. I would highly recommend this b&b to anyone looking for accommodations in the Durban suburbs.
