We enjoyed our days in this beautiful house. The breakfast was the best I ever had in South Africa!! The rooms were wonderful and the pool also. The staff was very nice. We even liked the dog!!
The only regret was the expensive laundry service. We should have asked before what the price would be - our fault.

Good day and thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and certainly hope you will come and stay again!
We are delighted that our breakfast was a winner ... We do pride ourselves on serving a great breakfast .... (we like to think it IS the best in town! )
We hope the experience of staying at The Grange was not dampened too much by the cost of the laundry (we do have the prices published in the Guest manual in each room, but I do realise sometimes they are not perused). Thank you for your comments, I shall be reminded to pre-warn guests who ask for this service.
Thank you once again for the review.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The humidity was unbearable, and the lack of air
conditioning didn't help.

The Wifi signal in the guesthouse is also weak.

Otherwise, the guest house is in a great area.

Thank you for your review. You stayed in our Self Catering Cottage, which is set just away from the main house, so the Wifi signal is rather weak at times. The rest of the Main Guest House and public areas are a better signal, and I am sorry you did not tell me at the time as I could have suggested you relax in the Lapa or on the Patio to enjoy stronger signal... but thank you for pointing this out as we are now in the process of getting some extra boosters installed.
As for the Humidity, I agree the sometimes Durban can be unbearably humid ...
Because the Self Catering Cottage does not have built in air conditioning, only ceiling fans in each room, we put the portable air conditioning into the cottage for extra comfort. We are sorry your stay seemed to be uncomfortable, you did not mention that when we chatted, I could have given you some extra ice for the Portable Air conditioner, which speeds up the unit reaching a cooler temperature.

I do hope you will come and stay in Durban again (perhaps the less humid months would be more suitable)... Thank you once again for taking the time to write a review.

We spent two nights at the grange, great hotel with a wonderful deck for breakfast or an evening meal. The breakfast menu is innovative, with the usual and some tasty different dishes. Good location for getting into Durban and handy for the airport. Trish and the staff are lovely and welcoming. Trish is a great source of ideas for visits and day trips etc.

Thank you for taking the time to review The Grange.... We do love to hear our guest's "point of view", and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
Great that you enjoyed the "different" breakfast dishes which use our local ingredients.
We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to South Africa!

We stayed here for 2 days in December as a group of 4 people and really enjoyed the room, breakfast, clean & luxury rooms! Furthermore the host was really nice and we would definitely stay there again! 5* for affordable price ! We had a room at the ground level with a nice little balcony and close to the pool

Stayed: January 2016

Great clean room with comfortable bed and bathroom. Quiet and peaceful area and seems to be safe. Breakfast standard plus some options which added value. Easy access to Durban North and Umhlanga areas.
