This bed and breakfast is very nice. first it is located in Umhlanga, which is on of the nicest neighborhoods around, 10 minutes walk to an amazing beach and to plenty of restaurants and cafes (on Chartwell drive)
the place itself is lovely, i loved all the small hotel-like touches (miniature shampoo, shower gel, body cream, soap), laundry bag in the closet, shower robes, welcome chocolates on the pillow :)
breakfast was good. It has a lovely pool, garden and braai area.
they also have free wifi.
the owner, Janelle, is really welcoming, friendly and lovely.
the only downside for me though, is that the rooms are not very well insulated. we were rather shocked when we were told that some people complained about us being noisy, as we're not the loud type at all! and just the day after, i could hear, from our room, people walking up and down the corridor, keys turning and doors opening and closing, sounds in the kitchen, the clatter of dishes and silverware, people talking, the phone ringing in the reception..., which is fine by me, but this shows that the rooms need better insulation!
and those old keys and locks could really use some renovation!
but other than that, it was a very pleasant stay :)
