Eagles View Kloof, Kloof, Durban

When you need to unwind and rejuvenate after a stressful week, there is no better way to do that than a stay at Eagles View Bed & Breakfast in Kloof, about 25 Kilometres West of Durban. My husband and I did just that! The time away at this 4-star bed and breakfast was just what we needed.

Eagle’s View B & B, nestled on the very edge of the Kloof Gorge and Krantzkloof Nature Reserve, is owned and managed by a lovely couple, Frank and Laureen, who have lived on the property for more than 30 years. It has been running as a B & B for 13 of those years.

Not only can you enjoy spectacular views of the natural surroundings, but you can also experience the delightful sounds of the Kloof Waterfall and the chirping of the abundant birdlife. When you need to escape the hustle and bustle of the city Eagle’s View B & B is the ideal place to be.

Accommodation at Eagles View

There are three rooms to choose from, each one offering a fantastic view of the gorge and surrounds which will make your stay all the more memorable. During our stay, we spent the night in Room 1.

All the rooms are en-suite and can accommodate up to two people. Our room had a King-sized bed that can be changed to twin beds upon request, an en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower, air-conditioning, TV with DStv and an amazing view of the Kloof Gorge and Nature Reserve.

Our room was comfortably spacious and the beds were fitted with fine linen, giving us a restful night’s sleep that was much appreciated. It was very peaceful and relaxing.

All 3 rooms have the same dimensions, but Room 2 and Room 3 differ from Room 1 in that they offer a Queen-sized bed. All the rooms are plush and contemporary, making your stay all the more comfortable and enjoyable. The rooms have access to the free Wi-Fi so you can always stay connected for fun or work during your stay.

Facilities & dining at Eagles View

After a rejuvenating sleep, we sat down to breakfast, and chose a traditional English breakfast which was cooked to perfection. The portions were just right and gave us a hearty helping of energy to face the day ahead.

For those who enjoy sundowners, there is a fully licenced honesty bar which is stocked with a variety of cool drinks, wine, beer and other spirits for you to enjoy.

The swimming pool and deck area provide the perfect way to cool off during the hot summer days while also enjoying views of the falls while you swim or soak up some sun. The deck and garden areas are truly beautiful and were the perfect place for us to put up our feet and relax.

If you are planning on a longer stay, Eagles View offers a laundry service upon request so you can always stay fresh and at your best. The secure parking area will keep your vehicle safe during your stay.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
