The facility is beautiful, the house and gardens are gorgeous but the service doesn't meet up to the expectations of this establishment. Even though we booked a week in advance we still had no table available as they were overbooked. They had a limited variety of cakes and were not willing to substitute something of equal price value. The cakes... More

Historical home located on spacious grounds. Large rooms with some located as suites around the pool. Large room and bathroom with shower leading to another outdoor shower and private spa. Really luxurious. The location is good although the outside rooms are near a busy road.

Audacia Manor was the prefect location to host my bridal shower/high tea. The lay out and food provided was superb and my guests are still talking about he beauty of the venue and its perfect "old-world" style. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to host a bridal shower or any other small event.

My expectations, having visited but not stayed, at the property, a grand once private home in what was one of Durban's previously prestige residential areas were high. But it soon became obvious, that whilst Audacia Manor is linked to African Pride a division of experienced hotel group, Protea Hotels, all is not well. I never discovered who the General Manager...

My sister and i had our graduation celebration party planned at Audacia Manor on 27.04.15. It turned out to be the most beautiful and well organised event ever. The staff were friendly and flexible inorder to cater for all our needs on the afternoon. The food was amazing, deco by Lynn-Rae turned out to be superb. We were highly impressed!!!!

We stayed here twice recently (with a safari between stays). The hotel is a lovely historical manner, very well kept up. We arrived on a Sunday after two days of flights and were so happy with the peaceful, restful ambience. We had a beautiful room with balcony overlooking the city and ocean. Great meals, great sleeps and a great location... More

I fist stumbled upon this amazing hotel a year ago whilst looking for my engagement venue. Little did I know the people of audacia Manor would contribute into making my special day extraordinary. From the fist meeting right till the very last meeting, the events manager Margo had helped plan and execute my dreams with such poise and prefessionalism. Everything... More

The hotel is quiet on a week day...but it was noisy due to a private function which we were advised about on arrival. Room and staff are great. Food OK. Party noise died down after 10pm. Morning After party all is normal and enjoying the stay...The peace and quiet moment we need. Cornwall room is one of the best rooms... More

I arranged my wife's surprise birthday at Audacia for 60 people. I also stayed the night with my 4 children. All staff were fantastic and made us feel welcome. Everything was well organised and went exactly as planned. Special mention must go to both Melanie and Thami. Thanks Audacia for making this occasion so special.

I stayed at Audacia Manor once again for a 4 day business trip in March 2015. Having not previously reviewed it after a few one night stays, this visit gave me the opportunity to do so. The location is spectacular with magnificent views of the ocean and Moses Mabida stadium. It is far enough from the city and beaches to... More
