I stayed at Audacia during a recent trip to Durban. The hotel is in a gorgeous manor house with high ceilings, spacious rooms and cosy communal areas. When I arrived, I couldn't find anyone to check me in - so I wondered around the house looking for staff and until I found someone in the restaurant. My room was spacious... More

There was a real Can Do attitude and the helpfulness of the staff was amazing.... More

We generally expect hotels to meet or exceed the lowly standards that qualified them for their ratings, however, when it comes to 5 Star accommodation, we demand that the establishment, meet AND exceed the rating they enjoy and I’m pleased to state that this boutique hotel does just that. The hotel is nestled in a cul-de-sac in the suburb of... More

The very colonial property is just a dream, the food divine and the service excellent. You will not be able to find anything excellent like this anyway in Durban. The pool area and the manicured garden are perfect to relax and to enjoy full service in these areas as well.
