About Bishops Guest House

A mere hour and a half drive from Durban, this retreat is set on the fringe of the 240 hectare indigenous Dlinza Forest with its abundant birdlife and aerial boardwalk. It is a great stopover for exploring the Zulu Kingdom and Route 66.

Bishops Guest House is a magnificent colonial home built in 1891 for the Bishop of Zululand. It has recently been refurbished, keeping the original architecture but with modern finishes, and offers six generous comfortable en-suite rooms. The stately residence has an exceptional ambience and caring, personalised service.

The guest house has convenient access to shopping centres, restaurants, museums, Eshowe Hills Golf Course, and The Zululand Brewing Company. We also offer game viewing, boat cruises, fishing, birding, cultural, and historical tours, and provide communication facilities for business travellers.

              Thank you so much to Bishops guest house for accommodating us, our stay was amazing. The owner of the guest house was very friendly, really beautiful and amazing person that made our stay away from home very pleasant. We will definitely recommend it to anyone needing a place to stay in Eshowe. Weekend well spent.
