    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The guest house is beautiful with classy furnishing, many large public areas to relax, a nice terrace for the breakfast and an inviting pool area by the quirky self service bar. Would definitely recommend.

    Lovely old characterful property, but in very poor condition and needs a serious lick of paint and a good clean. Beautiful old sash windows, but hadn't been cleaned in years, and paint peeling off. Plugs were unsafe and held together by tape. Pool area nice, but again needs a good clean. Overall, 2-star at best.

    Very unique and boutique, like staying in a period colonial house. From the silverware on the table at breakfast to the furnishings. Fabulous, and the staff all so very helpful.

    Charming and stylish hotel

    We loved the hotel. It is charming and the room with a canopy bed was wonderful with character and style. Much nicer than standard chain hotels.The service was friendly ,helpful and excellent. The breakfast was great . They have a buffet with fruit, cake, bread and cereal and then make your eggs and side dishes to order.I highly recommend Goble Palms.

    Last minute decision to visit Durban after sailing across Indian Ocean and then on to Cape Town. Goble Palms was perfect from our host Goodman and owner Lionel. Accommodations were clean, plush bed and spacious rooms. The breakfast overlooking the Indian Ocean was beautiful. Highly recommended.
