Ń baie lekker plekkie met die vriendelikste gasvrou.

Ons was vriendelik verwelkom deur die gasheer. Die plekkie was baie netjies en skoon. Die verblyf is veilig en lekker naby aan die rugby stadion waarna ons gegaan het. Die ontbyt was uit die boonste rakke en so lekker. Sal enige tyd weer terugkom.

A very nice place with the friendliest hostess.

We were kindly welcomed by the host. The place was very neat and clean. The accommodation is safe and nice and close to the rugby stadium we went to. The breakfast was top notch and so delicious. Will come back again anytime.

Dear Ellie, thank you for giving us the opportunity to host you. I am happy that you had a nice experience staying at the guest house. I hope I made it flexible for you by arranging Uber rides. Yes, we are situated in Durban North, not far from the beach front, but not within walking distance either. Our location is mentioned in our description. Also, during our correspondence, you never indicated that you wanted to be close to the beach or shops. Your only concern was the distance from the harbour. If you had mentioned wanting to be within walking distance to the beach or shops, I would have advised you correctly.

Although used for sleeping and showering only, we enjoyed the stay.

Lea is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay. I would recommend a bell on the entrance gate.

Riverside de Charmoy Guest House 's response

Dear Malcolm, your visit to Durban was very sentimental for you and I am happy you have chosen my guest house for your stay. With regards to the gate buzzer, I communicate with guests between booking and arrival, when guests arrive already know all the information they need. We share information on their arrival time so that I am fully prepared for their arrival and I can personally greet and let the guests in. At the present, I find this a safer way to check my guests in and also not to be disturbed by passers-by as we are trying to avoid walk-ins with guests with no prior reservations for safety reasons. I hope to host you again.

Kind Regards
Lia

Dear Johan,
Thank you for your time to review your stay. Seeing your 5-star ratings I am very happy you enjoyed it. Regarding your comment about the parking, we provide parking for 7 vehicles comfortably, ranging from small vehicles like the one you had all the way up to SUV’s with trailers and even boats at some point. When the situation with larger cars/trucks arise our guests contact us prior to discussing the parking possibilities, we make the necessary arrangements, and therefore I can assure you we have never ever had a problem yet. I hope my reply answered your concern and is helpful for our future guests. Thank you for bringing up this matter and we hope to see you soon.

Perfect choice for tired souls, couple, lone traveller or business couple.

If you like home away from home, this is for you. The home owner is one of the most hospitable and down to earth people you'll ever meet. This guest house offers absolute silence, safe from COVID-19. Great service. Quiet. Hygienic. The property is small, but the rooms are spacious. I could shut down with no disturbances. I suffered from PTSD - this place was perfect for me to start recovery from the Gauteng rat race. I felt at home quick, away from my home! My car was safe, food is great. Close to many attractions and easy to find. You can't hear the sea, but the forest sounds was great.

The place is nice and welcoming. Service was perfect.

We did not have water to drink ─ we had to use bathroom water to drink. They should put bottled water in the fridge for guests. For breakfast they should have a variety. Breakfast set up not appealing.

Riverside de Charmoy Guest House 's response

Dear Mahadi,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay.

With regards to drinking water from the bathroom tap: This was not necessary as you could have simply requested water for drinking purposes. Even though our plumbing system at the guest house has been recently been updated, drinking water from any of the taps is not dangerous. After all, most clean their teeth with the same water.

With regards to bottled water in rooms: We are proud to state that we are one of the guesthouses that encourage people not to use-single plastic bottles to protect the environment by reducing plastic consumption.

Regards,
Riverside de Charmoy Guest House

Waarde vir geld.

Die foto's laat dit baie groter en luukser lyk as wat dit is. Maar die kamer was baie skoon, bed was baie gemaklik. Het baie veilig gevoel. Ontbyt was oor en oor waarde vir geld. Vir die prys is dit werklik waarde vir geld.

Value for money.

The photos make it look much bigger and more luxurious than it is. But the room was very clean, bed was very comfortable. Felt very safe. Breakfast was value for money over and over again. For the price it really is value for money.

Bed met sagte dog ferm matras het baie lekker geslaap. Het heerlike Engelse ontbyt met geurige warm vars gebakte muffins die oggend geniet. Kan gastehuis aanbeveel.

Location on point, 16 minutes away from the most wanna be places, gateway mall, Ushaka Marine World, within 6 minutes to Blue Lagoon beach. Moses Mabida stadium close by, clean, neat and very relaxing, quite and very safe which gives you peace of mind. Friendly owner Lia will make you feel at home.

Lia was so behulpsaam en laat mens regtig tuis voel. Ek reis baie vir sake en slaap gereeld in gastehuise oor en moet sê volgens my is Riverside de Charmoy Gaste Huis een van die bestes waar ek nog oorgebly het. Sal hom met graagte aanbeveel.

Excellent family holiday accommodation.

Lia was very welcoming and helpful from confirmation of booking. Her first mail of welcome set the tone and her willingness to wait up for us until we arrived, in the 'wee hours of the morning of Saturday, showed she was prepared to 'walk the extra mile' for us. The accommodation was just what we needed; tasteful and understated but providing for all our needs. The attention we received was adequate and honest, not contrived nor over the top and never patronizing. As much as we love to hear the sound of the sea when we sleep, we' d much rather be at Riverside de Charmoy the next time we are in Durban.

We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend the place!

Lovely place, stayed in the self-catering apartment which was spacious, clean and well-equipped with a lovely view of the pool area. Lia was a wonderful host and the breakfast was awesome. Would definitely recommend staying there and will hopefully come back soon.

Dit was "okay".

Die vooraansig van die gastehuis kan verbeter, so ook parkering vir motors. Die kamer was pragtig en ontbyt uitstekend. Die gasvrou is baie vriendelik.

It was "okay".

The front view of the guest house could improve, as could parking for cars. The room was beautiful and breakfast excellent. The hostess is very friendly.

Skoon, gerieflik en lekker sentraal en naby die stadion vir rugby.

Kan die plekkie enige tyd aanbeveel. Het alles wat jy nodig het en die personeel is vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Die veiligheid is ook eersteklas. Dit was reeds ons tweede oorslaap daar.

Die oornaggeriewe is goed. Ontbyt was egter 'n teleurstelling.

'n Rustig en veilige area. Die fasilitiete is baie netjies en skoon. Die koffie in die kamer was teleurstellend. Ontbyt was min en koud. Ek het gesukkel om toegang tot die perseel te kry. Parkering is nie geskik vir groot voertuie nie.

The overnight facilities are good. Breakfast was a disappointment though.

A quiet and safe area. The facilities are very neat and clean. The coffee in the room was disappointing. Breakfast was little and cold. I had trouble accessing the premises. Parking is not suitable for large vehicles.
