“Great B&B”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We had been in Umhlanga Rocks a month before and, although we enjoyed the previous B&B we stayed at, we thought we would try something different. We were glad we did as we really enjoyed our couple of nights at Valdior. It was a little longer walk to the beach and restaurants than the other we stayed at but overall the accommodation was superior so the trade off was worth it.

Room Tip: The large suite at the back right side of the house was fantastic and it had a great patio deck over...

Stayed at this guest house over the Dec vacation and it did not disappoint. Location is good although its a bit of a walk to the beach or restaurants. Service was excellent and the ladies are very friendly. We enjoyed a good breakfast every morning. The rooms are luxurious, comfortable and well furnished.
Only down side was the green pool but this was resolved on the day we left.

Room Tip: Get a sea facing room

This B&B is stunning, and the interior decoration is of exceptional standard. Sandra is a lovely host and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast was delicious and cooked to your requirements. The location is good, and just a short walk from the beach, and restaurants.
I would recommend this as a good stop off, but not a long stay. They have an honesty bar which is a nice touch downstairs. The pool was extremely cold so we didn't venture in.

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view are fantastic.

I stayed at this lively B&B on a recent business trip to Durban.Had such an awesome experience at and will be visiting them again soon. The rooms are luxurious, the sea-views beautiful, the common areas so inviting and the breakfast was lovely.

Firstly, thank you Sandra ! Your service was too good to explain in simple words. Thank you and your owners for making our left field requests a reality, secondly, thank you for your unique hospitality. Managing a group of our size so efficiently is no easy task. We can't wait till the next time our group comes to your town to get some Valdior R&R !

Reviewed 10 June 2013

A weekend away on the east coast is always a pleasant experience for me. It is a user-friendly exercise with a short flight of only one hour duration and then a short drive from the airport to either Umdloti, Umhlanga or Ballito. I have tried many of the guest houses along this strip of coastline and found them all to be good. Using booking.com also makes planning really easy. so, it was to my horror that I discovered that I had been placed in the smallest room with zero view and a tiny bed (double if that !) when I had specifically reserved a deluxe room with "ëxtra large king size bed"These beautiful rooms do exist on the upper floors but I was allocated the rather musty smelling pokey little hole called Augusta (Room 6) instead. Sandra (manageress) and Joanna (owner) were both most apologetic about the mix-up and offered to try to get me a room elsewhere. I decided to stay as it was only one night and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast the next morning before checking out. They really need to sort out the communication problem between booking.com and the guest house.

Room Tip: Avoid augusta Room (number 6) at all costs
