I had a wonderful stay at Forest Manor. My room was palatial with a lovely balcony overlooking a swimming pool in a very upscale neighborhood. Friendly staff, good food and a stone's throw away from the beach. A memorable time!

We were made to feel as if we were putting the manager out because we were staying over. Not very welcoming. . The bathroom wasn't very clean - my pet hate!.

It was a great stay. The rooms were spacious, clean and lovely. The staff is very friendly and are willing to assist at all times, the food was delicious. The place is very central, its closer to all the attractions.

Great guesthouse that has helpful and considerate staff. I was welcomed by a warm and friendly woman (Zanele) that showed me around and provided me with excellent holiday advice upon my arrival. The guesthouse itself is compact and modern with all the benefits you've come to expect from a 5 star guesthouse. The area in which it is situated is... More

My daughter and I had business to do in Durban for a weekend, and we enjoyed our experience very much. Rooms are stunning, location great We would have like the television in the room to have worked however.

Thank you very much for your review. I am surprised to hear that the TV was not working in the room. Did you report this to the host on duty? In the rooms we have a select satellite TV channels and not the whole package which sometimes causes confusion. More

Beautiful 7 room villa with spacey rooms, Jacuzzi bath tub, tasty a la carte breakfast and super friendly and helpful staff. The Forest manor is 2 blocks from the white sandy beaches and around 20min walking to Umhlanga. I only had a one night stop but will def come back for longer during my next visit. GREAT VALUE

Beautiful property and staff; property is well protected with small amount of rooms with individual attention. Power went out only once during stay while others were out continuously. Internet in my room was a little weak
