Edith is a wonderful host and made us feel "at home" in her lovely guesthouse. Upper-Room-b+b is situated in a lush garden suburb - the yummy breakfast is served near the poolside. We would love to come back and stay longer!!!

I recently spent some time at the Upper room with my parents and was instantly overwhelmed by the welcoming atmosphere. Both staff and owners are warm, considerate and always eager to go the extra mile in ensuring their guests comfort.

It was a pleasant escape in a beautiful setting!

I could not be happier with my stay! My room was fantastic, the food was wonderful, but most importantly, Edith and Leon were simply the best hosts! As a woman traveling on my own for a couple of weeks, it was so good to know that they were watching out for me. They are fantastic people who clearly care about the people who come to stay with them. Connie and the other housekeepers were amazing too- everyone was just so friendly, and I couldn't be more thankful for that. I'll definitely be back if/when I come back to Durban.

Best way to describe my experience is Im not a B&B person but I truly enjoyed this experience. Leon & Edith are wonderful hosts- very lovely people. Connie took great care of us and Bentley the Jack Russell a total delight.

After spending a few nights at a nearby B&B I moved to An Upper Room. The two were worlds apart. Whereas the first was grimy and neglected, An Upper Room is clean, comfortable, and the owners very friendly.
