Glenview Guest House

an oasis
in Durban North

The perfect base in Durban — whether for business, holidays, a romantic weekend or team building events.

Enjoy comfortable contemporary accommodation and highly praised service in the beautiful surroundings of Glenview. The multi-level guest house is nestled in a quiet circle and boasts unrivalled views of the Glen — where else in the city can you see buzzards and falcons on the prey?  This tranquility is a mere 6-minute drive from the ever-expanding Riverhorse Valley Office and Industrial Park, and 10 minutes from Umhlanga Ridge and the Gateway Mall. Easily accessible from the N2, we are 20 minutes from King Shaka International Airport.

Glenview earned a place in the 2016 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Top SA 25, the only KZN guest house to receive that honour. We were also rated by Accommodation Direct as the 2016 Best Value Top Establishment.  

Come and experience our outstanding service and warm hospitality.

Glenview ranks as the Tripadvisor #1 for B&B’s in the Durban area.  Learn why …

Well situated … Stunning area with amazing views of the trees between the suburbs. House amazing and cozily decorated. The owner Johannes and the manager Michelle were the most welcoming hosts I have ever come across
Bianca R, Middelburg

Wow, wow, wow!!!!! What else can I say. From the minute we walk into the Guest house we were treated like ROYALTY …. I travel quite a bit for work and stay at various hotels and guest houses, but … this was by far the best experience.
