It was my return visit to this beautiful chic guesthouse in upmarket La Lucia. The property is a stone's throw from Umhlanga, with its prestigious Oyster Box and Beverly Hills hotels. And although no direct ocean frontage, the fresh sea breeze is ever present and the closest beach not more than 10 minutes away. The interior layout, furnishings, room details... More

First time Durban visitors we found the location to be perfect and loved the area North of Durban. No sea views which we would have taken much pleasure being current residents of Jo'Berg where there is no water in sight.... anywhere. But never the less the beach was a very quick walk away. Booking the "Forest Mahogany" room we found... More

Somethings to change and improve. But a good experience. In a location that can be not the best for holidays, you will find other things to do without no doubt. The buildong is so beautiful but they need to improve the services.

Felt breakfast could have been more varied and breakfast tables under cover a little larger... More

What a lovely place to stay in La Lucia. I stayed in this B&B in the lush suburb of La Lucia during the Indaba at the Durban ICC earlier this month. The location is convenient for business travellers as the Forest Manor is located close to the airport (15 min) and close to the Durban CBD (20 min). The safety... More

Very clean and comfortable. Quiet residential neighbourhood. Well stocked honest bar. Very spacious. Very good restaurants in short driving distance (Little Havannah). We had the 2 bedroom apartment. Unfortunately, you have to go through the second bedroom to get from the master bedroom to the bathroom.

We were made to feel very welcome, and the room was fantastic. Helpful staff and nice touches such as the honesty bar make this a wonderful guest house. Breakfast on the patio was fantastic, and the location makes it very easy to shop in La Lucia and explore the beach at Umhlanga.

I traveled to Durban with a small group of friends and we shared a two bedroom suite. The room was graciously appointed. each morning we were treated to a delicious breakfast aside the pool. I found the staff to be friendly, courteous and very helpful. All-in-all, my stay was delightful and I can't imagine staying anywhere else on future trips.... More
