From the moment we rang the bell, Aubrey was there to assist us. We had booked the lodge for our weekend dive trip and landed in heaven. Beautifully appointed suites with every amenity. A chef at your beck and call, a match made in heaven. We had the most sumptuous breakfasts ever. Words cannot describe the excessive unadulterated luxury we...

What a relief to finally find a B&B that met our requirements with such ease. The Eden River is beautifully decorated and feels like home. Our rooms had all we needed - and next time we will definitely spend more time relaxing around the pool. Our hosts were gracious and very accommodating.

Excellent in every way. Gracious hospitality and a stunning location right on the river. Highly recommended especially if one is in search of peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of daily living.

A beautiful guest house. Aubrey really went out of his way to look after us. The thoughtful gifts at the breakfast table on Christmas morning were appreciated. We really felt at home and would love to visit again.

This is one to not miss…it’s less than an hour from Durban heading down the coast towards East London and an easy drive from the King Shaka Airport. If you don’t feel like continuing the drive but you don’t want to stay in the city, this is a great choice. Plus, it’s a short walk to the beach. The owner,...

Need a place to unwind south of Durban? Eden River Lodge is it. Spacious well-appointed rooms- king-sized Egyptian cotton covered beds with giant pillows, housed in lots of Balinese and African wood and artifacts. Views overlooking the garden with lawns rolling down to the river. All framed with majestic Fever trees. Beyond all of that is the sea. The ample...
