Rippon Guest House

15 reviews


Rippon Guest House was established in 2008. It is an owner-run establishment and truly has a home-away-from-home atmosphere, with excellent hospitality at affordable prices. We are situated in a well-developed suburb called Sydenham/Sherwood, in Durban.

The guest house boasts fully equipped three-bedroom units with air-conditioning and DStv. We offer full English breakfasts on request.

Rippon Guest House is perfectly positioned within close proximity to shopping centres, namely Westwood. We are a 10-minute drive from Durban CBD, beaches, ICC, stadiums and Ushaka Marine World. There is easy access onto freeways. We are also a 30-minute drive from the airport and Gateway Shopping Centre in Umhlanga.

Guest Reviews

"Not worth it"
28 September 2015
Michele Bold, South Africa
"Although the owner is the sweetest person, that is the only positive thing I have to say. There are 2 bathrooms, but NO showers. The aircons didn't work. The fitted sheets had lost their elastic and kept popping off the beds, making it extremely uncomfortable. There were 2 tiny couches (a 2 seater and a single chair) in a 6 sleeper unit. So, only 3 people could sit in front of the t.v. at any given time. On the whole, not a pleasant experience."

"We stayed at the Rippon Guest House for 2 nights for our trip to Durban. The Rooms are well maintained and give a homely atmosphere. We did not have any problems there."
"Treatment of Clients"

Herman Oosthuizen, South Africa
"The place is good although the only problem I picked up is that your clients do not get the same treatment, as there is special parking for so called selected customers. My suggestion on this is that your parking areas can be use on a first come first serve base."
