Good location with easy access, great hosts, private pool area
Enjoyed my stay. However would have preferred to have ironing facility in my room as the laundry is quite cramped. Also, the kettle tripped the power plug when in use. Hosts were friendly and gracious, always willing to assist.

Great staff, wonderful ambience, super comfortable room
The relieving manager & his partner couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable and entertaining. There was heaps of information available on attractions around Durban and Andrei went out of his way to phone for further information for us. The breakfasts they provided were wonderful and they even opened the dining room 30 mins early so we had time for a nice breakfast before leaving for the bus station. The recommendations on getting into the city & what to see there were very accurate and our only regret was not having more time. Highly recommend Africa Regent and would love to go back.

As close as the owners could get to a hotel environment, this is a guest house. This was my first experience of staying at a guest house.

A lovely hotel well worth the money!!
The owners Dave and Pam!
we stayed here for 4 nights with my fiancée and her parents in early july. we wanted to use the hotel as a base for our trips to rorkes drift and the sani pass, we have stayed at many hotels and guest houses over the last few years, but we have never been met with so much enthusiasm and time from the owners. as soon as you arrive at this hotel you get the feeling you are arriving at a new home. the breakfast was tasty and served a selection of hot and cold dishes. there is also a games room in the basement that can be used for snooker, darts and table football. the bar has a large selection or drinks at realistic prices. if we returned to durban we would definitely stay at this hotel again. thank you for a great stay!
