I had the opportunity to enjoy the best Hotel Stay that I have had in my travels of the last 11 years. This hidden Boutique-Hotel should be rated in the top-five of all hotels in South Africa. From the moment that I checked in, the treatment was excellent and the Berkshire room was an excellent choice for our stay. The... More

This hotel has a very special unique atmosphere. It feels like you are away from all the noise and chaos the typical December holiday period brings to Durban. It's staff are always going the extra mile to ensure their guests are happy & comfortable. Home away from home. We will be back again.

My company had our Christmas Party at Audacia Manor. 30 of us arrived to laze around the pool, eat delicious food and sip ice cold drinks in loungers. The weather was great, the staff service was impeccable and the food delicious. They let us get a little rowdy without completely losing the plot. As a venue for a relaxed corporate... More

A lovely hotel with the style of old Europe. The staff were very friendly and helpful and tried to accommodate our needs. Highly recommended. The garden area of the property is wonderful. The grand colonial house is very well maintained and still hold all of its luxury.

We held a very special and private function at Audacia Manor this weekend. The whole experience was truly incredible! The moment you drive into Audacia, one is completely overwhelmed by the grand nature of the colonial - style building. Greeted by a charming young man as we exited our vehicle, we knew Audacia was something special! Right from the start,... More
