5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

I stayed for two nights at the Africa Regent. It was an easy access from King Shaka Airport after our flight from Europe. The friendly and helpful advice of the two Gentlemen now looking after the Africa Regent was an important element in easing us into the South African experience. The location is fabulous. With the car the City Center, the Airport and convenient shopping Centers are all well accessible. Rooms are cosy and very clean, They Pool a relieve after hot days out in town. Would return there anytime and recommend it to everybody,

We chose the Africa Regent on the basis of the positive reviews and we were not disappointed. This is a very friendly, clean and comfortable guest housel in a convenient location in north Durban. David, the host was most hospitable and met us on arrival to pass on useful local information, including the location of some excellent restaurants which were within safe walking distance. The bedrooms were extremely nicely decorated and very comfortable, with all important air conditioning. We took advantage of the well stocked bar before and after our meal, most enjoyable. Breakfast was also excellent with plenty of choice. Overall, a brilliant guest house which we would definitely stay at again.

We have visited Africa Regent Guest House twice now and have loved both of our stays. The welcome has been great and the hosts are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are lovely and spacious and the whole House is great! We loved the area around the pool and how peaceful it was there despite being in Durban! We will definitely go again and really recommend it!

After a long day of shark diving in Gansbaai and flight interruptions from Capetown, a call to the guest house quickly made all apprehensions disappear. They quickly arranged for the taxi service to meet me for the new arrival time and the transfer was seamless. My plan was to stay one night and leave the following afternoon. Transportation to my next destination left Durban while I was sleeping - but no worries. David contacted the car service, the next hotel and arranged for me to stay an extra night in Durban, arrive a day late in St. Lucia and so forth. All without breaking a sweat! One can stay in a a 5 staraccomodation, but it has been my experience that one can only find 10 star people in places such as the Africa Regent Guest House. The accomodation, food and ambiance were better than advertised. I cannot imagine anyone having a negative say about this fine establishment.

Room Tip: all seemed equally wonderful

I would completely ignore any low reviews of this place. Service, location, cleanliness, value, comfort and decorative charm surpass any hotel you could possibly find (we had many friends staying at other places) and we were super glad we chose to stay at the Regent. The owners are VERY hospitable and friendly, the rooms are very comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was very yummy, to where I actually looked forward to it. =) Having own garage opener and going straight to your room (rent a car, it's worth it) is so much more convenient that traveling through a lobby, finding the elevators, and traipsing down long hallways each time you leave your hotel room. There were many thoughtful touches like new magazines, free coffee, tea and water and biscuits every day, a nice pool, pool table, darts, cards and honors bar, etc. I could go on, but this place is just HIGHLY recommended. Great value, too. I disagree this is a place 'for grandma'. We are in our early twenties, but maybe we enjoy comfort, peace, hospitality and class. When we want to party we can go to a nightclub... I find it strange the guests that want noise and ruckus where they stay and complain when a place is too 'quiet'. The other positive reviews clearly outweigh the negative outliers. Book this place now! You won't regret it!

Room Tip: Our room was Room 1, bottom floor and right by the bar/pool room, but we did not mind at all. We li...

This is classed as a guest house, but in my opinion far exceeds many hotels I have stayed in.
It is situated North of Durban, in a sleepy little suburb, the rooms are exceedingly well finished and spacious, spotlessly clean, the owners are incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast excellent, cooked by themselves.
