Thank you for your review. It is a pity that current Covid protocols have restricted our big buffet breakfasts ... but glad you still enjoyed our social distancing served breakfasts. It is always a pleasure having you to stay, and what a treat to be able to meet your extended family and new edition. Looking forward to your next visit (and the next "new edition" as your family grows. Take care. Regards from Trisha and The Grange Team

I have enjoyed many pleasurable visits to The Grange, and I highly recommend it to business and pleasure traveler alike. The Grange is is a beautiful 'old Durban' property, purposefully and sensitively converted into a modern Bed and Breakfast, offering all the mod cons. Trish and her staff make sure to welcome you on arrival and are always attentive and responsive to your needs as a guest. ... and the breakfast is top class too!

Thank you so much for your review, we do so appreciate it. Indeed we cater for both Tourist and Business guests (Although our Tourist Guests are very few this past year with the Covid restrictions, but we do look forward to welcoming tourists again as boarders re-open). Yes we do try to make our business travel feel as much of a "home from home" experience, in "our" home. Thank you again and take care during these uncertain Covid times.

Thank you for your review, we do appreciate feed back from our guests. We are indeed located close to all amenities, tucked away in the quiet residential neighbourhood of Durban North (away from the busy city life / and yet close enough to get to most Durban sites , beaches, shopping centres and business areas). The sea views from the first floor used to be enjoyed from our ground floor patio as well, but over the past years these sea views have become "Seas glimpses" for those taller folk like myself.... The Ground floor sea views have been obscured over the years with the lush green neighbourhood trees growing higher.. I guess with global warming, we should be grateful for the growing trees. The collection of art is from The Wada Families extensive travels through Africa and each has a unique story to tell. Thank you once again for your review.

Beautifully located on a quiet suburban street in the north of Durban. This guesthouse is a joy to visit. Everything is always so sparkling, the rooms are luxurious and there is off-street secure parking. I would highly recommended The Grange for both business and leisure stays. Trisha and her team are friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are superb. Thank you Trisha for always going the extra mile, we love coming to The Grange and will keep coming back!

Thank you so much for your review, we do so enjoy our guests returning like you do... it makes you more like family! And yes indeed ... Breakfast is the most important meal of the day ... even if we have to send you off extra early with a "packed breakfast" (good for other guests to know this is an option for those extra early morning departures. We strive to continue to make our guests stay a good one! Thank you again for your review.
