About Petla's Place

Petla's Place is located away from the heat and humidity of central Durban, in the lush and wooded area of Westville. We offer a convenient location for business and leisure travellers, with easy access to the main freeways and just 10 minutes’ drive from the Durban and Pinetown City Centres.

We offer accommodation in five comfortable en-suite units with private entrances that are separate from the main house. Two of the units also have self-catering facilities, and each room features a TV with M-Net and tea and coffee-making facilities. We offer a full English or continental breakfast, with dinner available by prior arrangement.

Secure parking is available and guests are welcome to make use of the large swimming pool and private barbecue area. A laundry service can also be provided by prior arrangement, if required.

Advertised as Self Catering, sorry not my room. Hardly a microwave. It was so cold and wet, and no heater or air-conditioner in the room. 2 single unpleasant beds. The smallest fridge you can get, only one bottle of wine and a litre of my appletisser went in and I even forgot them in there. Not impressed with my room.

The place is outdated , the owner needs to invest into his business and upgrade the equipment and furniture . There is a smell of dampness in the main bedroom . What is shown in the pictures is entirely what you see when you get there , there are two single sleeper couches in the small lounge which was never shown in the website . We were frustrated in our entire stay in that place . The was one two DSTV channels with weak signal SABC channels .

Good place with friendly environment. The weather was bad & affected the signal of the tv & was not working

The establishment was very neat and tidy, however, the lack of air-conditioning and appropriate airflow in the units make it impossible to stay comfortably during the hotter days. As a result, my family and I checked out after the first night of a 3 night booking. There was no sympathy from the owner who still demanded full rates for the remaining nights.
