It is always a battle to find quality pet friendly accommodation in South Africa but uShaka have got it right. They are a top-end luxury establishment, and they just charge extra for the dogs. Only fair. Great place. Great position - walking distance to all the Umhlanga restaurants and to the beach. Great rooms leading onto lovely big tropical garden... More

I got married in Durban in August 2014. As part of the wedding planning I tried to find the ideal accommodation for my elderly parents and uncle. After a lengthy search and many discussions, I booked specific rooms at uShaka 18 months in advance of our trip. I also called to confirm the booking and e-mailed some months later to... More

Compared to other places we saw in the neighborhood, this might be a bit pricey but looking back i was happy that the rest was full and we ended up here: A very good experience. When we arrived in Durban after a long flight, Mark picked us up from the airport and was very helpful once we arrived in the... More

We arrived at uShaka Manor Guest House on the 13th January 2014 & after a long journey from Knysna to Durban it was a welcome relief to be greeted by Danita & Kerry who were extremely welcoming. We were shown to our room & offered refreshments. The mini bar in the room was well stocked & it was a genuine... More

From the arrival we have been impressed with what was found. A real 5 star venue were you can feel at home. The staff members are just great and very accommodating to our needs. Great for holidays with peace and lots of entertainment from the region. Highly recommended.

I have stayed in this guest house several times and it really is a fantastic place to stay. The staff of Danita, Keri and Luca are genuinely lovely people who can't do enough for you. The laundry and mini bar in the room are excellently priced and if there was any help needed the team at this hotel would always... More

This guesthouse gives a 5 star welcome from the moment you arrive. All the staff are very friendly and they go out of their way to make sure you feel at home. The room was great (we stayed in the Buffalo suite) - it was very big and spacious. There is a lovely balcony overlooking the garden which is perfect... More

Have stayed at uShaka guest manor on two occasions in two years. On each occasion I planned a short visit and ended up having to change my flights after deciding to stay on for a few extra days. All the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Luca deserves a special mention! He has made each stay extra special, going way... More

We travel a lot and I was really worried because some guesthouses / lodges advertise that they are a 5 star facility and when you get there it is only a 2 / 3 star and it doesn't look anything like the photo's. However at Ushaka Manor upon arrival we were greeted warmly by the staff. They made us feel... More

After a long flight from UK we were greeted warmly at the airport by Danita & Charmaine and this friendly personal service carried on throughout our 7 Night stay. The rooms were lovely, just as described, maid and laundry service were also first class. Breakfast again was excellent and very peaceful overlooking the pool and lush garden areas. Easy walk...
