Breakfast was excellent (Fit for a king/queen) Walking distance from the beaches. Paradise for fishermen like myself. Ideal for one night or extended holiday. Neat premises with friendly staff. Swimming pool fantastic.

This is by far the best guest house in La Lucia. Very professional and friendly hosts. From check-in to the beautiful and spacious rooms, to the amazing breakfast. Everything is just perfect. They go out of their way to make you comfortable. It is situated in a very quiet area.

One of the best accommodations I have ever been to in la lucia. It was clean, comfortable and very extravagantly decorated. Will definately go back there again. Breakfast was great as well. Stunning pool as well.

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.

Staff welcoming and efficient. Would have been helpful to have indication of how various switches in room to be used eg light dimmer, what to do when red light showed for room access - suspect we set off the alarm on our return one evening!. 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
