          What a beautiful bed and breakfast! Some people say it's dated, but it adds to its old charm. The bed was super comfortable, breakfasts were great and lounge chairs very relaxing. The staff were fantastic too!

          We really enjoyed our family time at Goble Palms mainly because of the excellent and caring service we received from all members of the staff - we'll be back when next in Durban!! Breakfasts were casual with great variety and the normal excellent service!
