The staff was courteous and friendly, the room was clean and very comfortable, and the cooked breakfast every morning was excellent. Goble Palms has an old world charm with modern and well maintained amenities and is ideally situated in Morningside in Durban. Thank you for a very comfortable and relaxing stay.
