I booked two nights at Forest Manor whilst travelling home to visit family and friends. I'm originally from Umhlanga Rocks, so I'm familiar with the area. The Guest House is in a great area, pretty much halfway between La Lucia and Umhlanga Rocks. I stayed in the 'Manor Suite', which is bigger than most apartments. I found the bed comfortable,...

This is a Guest House for the gentry and aspiring gentry, oozing quality and value. A great place to stay. The rooms are really comfortable, the location is ideal and the staff are friendly and efficient. All this for a price that you would expect from an establishment half as good. Forest Manor makes many other more expensive boutique hotels... More

We stayed at Forest Manor for a night in June. It's a beautiful, well kept, comfortable B&B and close to everything! The staff were also friendly and the breakfast delicious. We'd definitely go back again!

Whilst the staff were friendly and helpful, feel this is strictly a businessman's place to stay. Close to La Lucia Mall and Umhlanga. Room looked onto road and no views what so ever. Good breakfast. little parking space

One word - Fabulous! It is a 'one of a kind' guest house. The accommodation beautiful, comfortable; the surroundings and interior - "a feast for the eyes", the staff - the best I have ever come across in all my years of travelling. They go the extra mile with a smile and nothing too big or small to help out.... More

Beautiful & elegant with a serene & calming air about it. Loved the unhurried breakfast on the patio. Lovely staff - friendly, humble & very polite. Our home away from home. Thank you for the memories.

It was definitely a home away from home, excellent staff especially Zanele. The finishes were to die for,the food was great and the ambience in general was extremely welcoming. Would definitely refer anyone heading that side to it. Definitely coming back. Kunta & Vuyo (Klerlsdorp)
