I had the privilege of staying at Chelsea Villa on a business trip for 2 nights during October 2013.

Chelsea VIlla is located in a residential area in Durban. Restaurants and shops are close by. The city center is at a ten minute drive. Why should you go here? I would have to say a combination of a few things: the owners (yes, you can have a great chat with them and they are great people), the rooms (spacious... More

During a recent business trip to Durban we stayed in Chelsea villa, it caters mostly for business people during the week and therefor is very calm over the weekend. Everything is just done and done the right way. Rooms are big, bathrooms are just plain huge. Breakfast is simply delicious and in case you need anything, the hosts will assist... More

My husband and I were recommended to stay here by our travel agent, and we absolutely loved it! We spent 2 weeks traveling around South Africa, and Neville was by far the friendliest, funniest, and most accomodating host of our entire trip. The location is not in the heart of Durban, but it is just a short walk to several... More

My son & I had a wonderful 7 night stay there whilst celebrating my mother's 100th birthday. Neville & Alison are so welcoming and friendly, so kind and obliging, even offering to get us something to eat after a late arrival.
