“Great Host”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I have been going to Rod's B&B for over 10 years.

Although my work pays for any 4 star Hotel (at overpriced rates) I always insist on staying at Kingston Place. I enjoy Rod's knowledgeable stories regarding the stock exchange and golf over a beer on the deck overlooking the ocean. Hotels are generally too impersonal for my liking, and the proprietor of Kingston place goes the extra mile to make guests feel at home.

Stayed 4 nights at Kingston Place B & B for business. Was quite well satisfied with the property, management, breakfast and staff. The proprietor, Rod, offered to pick me up from center of Umhlanga Rocks. The taxi rides thereafter were but $3 - $4 one way back to town. Rod gave me the name and number of the taxi driver he uses. Michael ansered the phone each time I phoned and was there t pick me up quickly. Excellent choice of restaurants but a 5 minute taxi trip away into town. If you want the higher priced view, walk down the hill from the city center and have a drink at the Beverly Hills Hotel or the Oyster Box. My room was quite spacious with a queen bed and sofa. Good Wifi. Located at very quiet cul de sac on the hills overlooking the ocean.

We stayed four nights in the honeymoon suite.
The room was very large and the bathroom just as big. The bathroom has a spa bath and a seperate shower. The bathroom also has two seperate wash basins, a his and hers as we used them! The towels they provide are so soft and very large! there is a little basket of complimentary toiletries and also some bath salts too!
The main room had a vanity mirror, honesty bar and a tv with basic dstv viewing.
The bed is huge! with plenty of pillows to choose from and very soft bedding too.

Best thing about this room? a full wall window you can wake up to the most beautiful sunrise over the ocean every morning. You can also see the guest pool below too.

This room is very private.

Breakfast in the morning consists of a full English however you like it! Cereals and omlettes.

The staff are extremely helpful and a credit to the house!

What was a nice little touch is that when we chose to sit outside in the morning on the first day, we sat at a particular table on the balcony, overlooking the pool and the ocean. The next morning when we returned for breakfast we found our table reserved for us, with all our cutlery placed just where we were sat before! This is service that goes one step further!

We travel to Durban twice a year, for sure we will book another stay soon!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a ocean view. Honeymoon suite is perfect for that. Or the penthouse.

This is a real friendly guest house which has great service and a good atmosphere. The rooms are really clean well maintained and up to scratch. Honesty bars in all rooms and one on the balcony. Staff really friendly and serve a great breakfast that keeps you going for the day. It is only 5 mins by car from Umlhanga CE nature where there are a variety of great restaurants for people to choose from catering for all tastes and at very reasonable prices. Spent 4 nights here and would recommend to anyone that its a good place to stay at very reasonable rates.

Room Tip: All rooms are good which ever you go on, although if you ask for a room I. The main house with a vie...
