Comfortable rooms.

The place has beautiful rooms and is very comfortable. They didn't make the beds.

Acorn B&B in Durban 's response

Hi Kungeka. We're not sure what the reason for this oversight was, and we apologise if our staff did not make your bed on the Sunday you were staying with us. It's a pity this was not brought to our attention at the time as we could have immediately rectified the problem.

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Acorn B+B.

Acorn B+B in Durban has a great atmosphere, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The accommodation was comfortable, clean, and quiet, and we would not hesitate to stay at Acorn again.

We loved hosting you and your husband as you were such appreciative guests. We hope to host you again since our location is so convenient for many activities.

A home away from home.

Comfortable. A home away from home. The host is exceptionally caring and pays such attention to detail. I have always stayed at Acorn B&B when in Durban. Good location. Excellent service.

Always a pleasure hosting you both. Happy birthday, and thank you for the shared cake.

Owner is friendly, but accommodation was not ideal.

When booking, I specifically booked rooms with showers, but upon arrival I got another room, one with a bath (not even a hand shower). I inquired but the other rooms were already booked and occupied. Second night there was a leak in the roof and dripped onto my bed's headboard.

Bedding not changed in 9 days, aircon not working in all rooms. Fridge not working, no breakfast available as promised. Rooms not even serviced or cleaned in 9 days.

I was totally disappointed, would never recommend this place to no one, in actual fact I should be given a refund in compensation for the let down.

The bed was not made on checking in and that was late around 4 in the afternoon and the basin was not washed after a bath. The owners are staying there with you, there is no privacy.

I did not like the place, it was filthy and not worth it.

Acorn B&B in Durban 's response

Unfortunately you are correct the room was not up to our usual standard when you check in as I still had to make the bed, after tiding the room.
As we were fully booked I could not offer another room at the time, I am offering you both A FREE nights stay at a convenient time for you and us.
You maybe dont know but a B&B has to have an owner on the premises .
I dont understand how you can say you lost your privacy as you were on the 1st floor and I`m on the ground floor. I don`t remember seeing or going upstairs to disturb you.
Once again We ALL at Acorn B&B in Durban apologies for the unfortunate experience

Heerlik rustige ontvlugting naby genoeg aan die lughawe.

Dit is 'n oase wat duidelik bekend is was vir buitelandse besoekers, met 'n sensitiewe gasheer, Tom, wat mense laat tuis voel. Ons is dankbaar vir GPS, anders sou ons dalk gesukkel het met die ligging. Acorn staan uit in die omgewing en ons sou lekker vir langer daar kon bly.

Lovely peaceful escape close enough to the airport.

It is an oasis that is clearly known to foreign visitors, with a sensitive host, Tom, who makes people feel at home. We are thankful for GPS, otherwise we might have struggled with the location. Acorn stands out in the area and we would have loved to stay there for longer.

Since we were a group we made our own fun!

The owner of the accommodation wasn’t really nice to us honestly speaking. He talked about us threatening him and telling us he will get the police to take us out. I would have appreciated it if he was talking to us with a proper manner. Me and my will never set our foot again there. We couldn’t even ask him to stay inside for little minutes waiting for our transport, he really wanted us out on the check out date. So we waited for an hour outside premises waiting for transport with our luggage like we were thrown out.

Thumbs up!

Sincere and hospitable people. The morning's "smiley breakfasts" made you feel at home. Close to restaurants and shopping malls. Will definitely stay there again!

Thank you so much for the positive review. Having guests like yourselves is a pleasure for us. We look forward to hosting both again.
I hope Alex is feeling better.
