I stayed for three nights and enjoyed every aspect of my stay. The room was large and in excellent condition, service was excellent and the quiet location close to good restaurants and the King's Park complex where we were based.

Excellent place and location. Staff are really attentive and polite and always try to make you feel comfortable. The garden rooms are huge with a private outdoor jacuzzi and shower! Breakfast is filling and beautifully cooked. Will definitely be going back. Thank you to all hotel staff

small hotel, great rooms, friendly service, used as a first stop from airport, easy place to wind down in after a long flight. G and T at the bar just gets the holiday started in the right mood, followed by a good nights sleep and superb breakfast

Stayed here for an overnight and after a poor experience at our previous hotel, the Audacia Manor was a much welcome change. The room was beautiful as well as the bathroom which stepped out into an outdoor shower and jacuzzi. It's a small hotel so there isn't a huge staff. Marilyn is amazing. Such a nice person and she works... More

Wonderful welcome. Friendly, helpful staff. Stunning view from out beautiful room. Real treat to have a linen tablecloth and serviette in a silver serviette ring on the table at our enjoyable breakfast. A very pleasant overnight stay.

Audacia Manor is truly the most beautiful hotel in Morningside, Durban. It has the most spectacular views of Durban from the stadium to the sea. It is extremely well kept, the gardens are spectacular and what made it more than absolutely amazing... were the staff and the high level of service they provided. Karen and her staff go out of...

To me, one of the ways to assess service is how the provider, is how things are handled when things go wrong. From that point of view, the restaurant and the management at the hotel didn’t match up. But ok, first the good parts. As another reviewer mentioned, it is great to sit on the veranda and look out to... More

A Durban Secret. This very nice hotel is situated in a quiet residential part of Durban just down the hill from the Presidents Durban Palace. We tried the restaurant for lunch after hearing a few quiet whispers about it. The food was indeed extremely good and is definitely well worth a visit. Whilst we did not view the rooms, the... More

This Boutique Hotel does not advertise its restaurant. It is a charming experience sitting on the verandah overlooking the city of Durban and enjoying drinks and a good menu. Surprised that sofew Durbanites know of its existance--it's a little Gem
