Guest Comments

It is truly a "family and friends" guesthouse. We were greeted with warmth and hospitality. We left with the feeling that we met "family" instead of strangers. Very, very pleasant stay.


- Laetitia Deutschmann

The facilities at A Family and Friends Guesthouse is great! The owners are really friendly.
- Feroza Essop

My wife, daughter (18), son (15) and I stayed over at A Friend and Family Guesthouse on 6 and 11 January and I can recommend this B&B to any potential customer.
Terry and Cheryl are superb hosts and the atmosphere is relaxing and homely. The accommodation is brilliant, and the breakfast that was presented was delicious and more than ample for hungry travellers!
A good choice all round. We will definitely return there, when back in Durban.
