Fantastiese verblyf en super vriendelike gasvrou.

Ons bly altyd baie lekker by Olive Room. Marianne is baie gasvry en behulpsaam. Ons geniet die stilte en rustigheid van die tuin. Die kamer was baie gerieflik en ons het baie veilig gevoel.

Lekker tuis geboek, lekker geswem en gebraai daar.

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Veral die swembad is 'n heerlike lafenis in Durban se hitte. Sou net 'n air conditioner waardeer het vir die hitte. Dit is ondraaglik vir ons wat van die binneland af kom.

Booked a nice home, had a nice swim and barbecue there.

We had a very nice stay. The swimming pool in particular is a great escape in Durban's heat. Would have appreciated an air conditioner for the heat. It is unbearable for us who come from the interior.

Absoluut waarde vir geld, baie netjies, rustig en naby genoeg aan groot sentra sonder om rustigheid in te boet.

Die Olive Room is alles wat geadverteer word, baie netjies, rustig en ruim. In 'n stiller area geleë maar naby genoeg aan die groter sentra sonder om opgesaalcte wees met die besige lewe en lawaai van die middestad ens. Sal definitief weer besoek.

Absolute value for money, very tidy, quiet and close enough to major centers without sacrificing tranquility.

The Olive Room is everything that is advertised, very neat, peaceful and spacious. Located in a quieter area but close enough to the larger centers without being burdened with the busy life and noise of the city center etc. Will definitely visit again.

Heerlik gebly en het tuis gevoel.

Alhoewel Olive Room baie sentraal geleë is, was die toegangspaaie, veral Umbila Road, moeilik rybaar a.g.v. die hoeveelheid trokke daarop. Nogtans beveel ek Olive Room aan vir reisigers en vakansiegangers.

Had a wonderful stay and felt at home.

Although Olive Room is very centrally located, the access roads, especially Umbila Road, were difficult to drive due to the amount of trucks on it. Still, I recommend Olive Room to travelers and vacationers.

Was baie vriendelik en professioneel ontvang en het baie lekker gebly.

Ons was 2 paartjies wat 2 kamers bespreek het. Baie netjies gewees en het dit baie geniet. Die TV in kamer 5 het nie gewerk nie en in kamer 2 wou die wasbakprop nie opskiet toe ek die water sou laat uitloop nie, maar ons was vir 'n begrafnis in Durban en het slegs 1 nag oorgeslaap. Mens verstaan dat klein probleempies nou en dan kan opduik. Die tuin en swembad is absoluut pragtig en word baie goed onderhou. Die opsigter het selfs vir my vrou 'n Stevie (stukkie van 'n plant) gegee.

Was received very friendly and professionally and had a very nice stay.

We were 2 couples who booked 2 rooms. Was very neat and enjoyed it a lot. The TV in room 5 didn't work and in room 2 the sink plug wouldn't pop up when I tried to drain the water, but we were in Durban for a funeral and only stayed 1 night. One understands that small problems can arise now and then. The garden and pool are absolutely beautiful and very well maintained. The caretaker even gave my wife a Stevie (piece of a plant).
