I have just spent a night at Abalone Place. The suite I had was beautifully decorated, with real attention to detail and fantastic views over the harbour and as far as the iconic football stadium. The bed was so comfortable that I was sorry to have to get up and go to work, but the delight of having a luxurious... More

We stayed at this wonderful guesthouse while we were in Durban during the 2010 World Cup. My review is way overdue but my memories of the experience we had are still quite fresh. My husband and I have fond memories of our trip to South Africa and the hospitality we experienced at the Abalone Guesthouse is one of the highlights... More

I have stayed at Abalone Place a few times now. I have been there on a short vacation with friends and then once or twice while in Durban for business. Centrally located in Durban's Glenwood suburb with a very warm and luxurious home away from home feel. Very well priced for what you get. The rooms are spacious and beautifully... More

Abalone Place was everything we were looking for and more. It was in lovely quiet location, our room was gorgeous and we had a wonderful balcony with a stunning view out over the city. The building is a lovingly-restored old house and immense care taken with colour schemes and furnishings, but as well as been extremely stylish, it is also... More

This guesthouse is a real find for those stopping in Durban. The conversion of this elegant house was a labour of love for the owners and they have made it a truly beautiful spot, with a host of carefully thought through details and a great eye for antiques and fine pieces throughout. Their involvement with the guesthouse ensures that its... More
