I found Africa Regent only after researching on Trip Advisor. Rarely does a guest house live up to such lofty reviews. Africa Regent exceeded any expectations and so much more. At the time of my visit, the owners were off travelling and had left 2 superstars, Andre and Jack, in charge in their absence. Service was excellent, helpful and the... More

Had the opportunity to spend 2 nights at the Africa Regent guest house. David is very welcoming and accommodating and willing to provide direction to ideal places to see in Durban. The location is within walking distance of eating establishments and in a very safe and upscale area. I would have no hesitation in going back.

I suppose The Africa Regent could be labelled a few different things, 'Guest House' being one of them. It felt more like a mini-Resort to me, less like a B&B where you're invading someone else's home. The owners are mindful of this, and do an excellent job of not only making you feel welcome, but have done a great job... More
