Sylvan Grove Guest House, Umhlanga, South Africa
Exactly what I needed whilst my husband was in hospital..... quiet, comfortable, clean and a delicious breakfast. Was disappointed in the TV programmes I couldn't get, but wasn't serious for me as I was chilling.

Very Good8.0
Comfortable stay, good location
The room and bathroom we stayed in was spacious. The breakfast was well prepared and hearty. The location is great . The service is professional. If you are looking for a comfortable stay this is the place, but if you are looking for more character and a cosy atmosphere this might not be for you. I would suggest this more for the business traveller. In summer it could be better as it has a nice pool area.

Additional charges of R1000+ at departure.
We booked via We booked for a family of three. We were charged online for the full amount, or so it stated on the receipt. At the end of our stay, we were given a charge of R1035.00 due to our son not being paid for. When queried, the manager stated that it has happened before, but failed to check this detail when we arrived, or better yet, before we departed! Terrible oversight of something that has happened on other occasions. This should be noted when a booking for 2 adults, and 1 child they need to physically check if the child has been paid for. This is an extra R1000+ that was never accounted for in our budget, and having known this from day 1, the staff should have surely given us advance warning. Especially with an establishment that only has 6 rooms. If this did not occur, I would give the establishment high praise, but this is a costly oversight that, as stated, could have been corrected in due time. Especially since we booked 3 months before our departure.
