We booked Audacia manor for a private function on Friday night and all of the rooms for our guests. The hotel was home from home…a gracious elegant and beautiful manor house set on the berea where the staff just could not do enough for us. There was a real Can Do attitude and the helpfulness of the staff was amazing.... More

Thank you for a great stay! We recently spent four nights in the hotel after reading the reviews on this forum, we were not disappointed, the hotel is situated in a secure location with views overlooking the city which have been total utilized by the outside seating area and bar. We sat relaxing with wonderful views in peaceful surroundings -... 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

My family hosted a ladies tea party in June 2014. From the onset of our booking, we received the best service anyone could imagine. Thando gladly assisted us with the best options for our guests, offered advice on how to improve on our requirements and paid attention to every detail. On the day of the event, Jordan, Happy, Margo and... 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.

My daughter chose to stay here on the night before her wedding, 11th April, with her bridesmaid as she was getting married the following day at the church over the road. We booked the Surrey and Sussex rooms for them and organised a dinner for 20 on the night of the 11th. On arrival we were told they were having... More

We booked to have my sister's baby shower at Audacia Manor and they went above and beyond to make it an amazing event. We are from Johannesburg so we had booked the place without physically visiting it but they made the whole process incredibly easy. Everything was better than we could have imagined. We had a private room and had... More
