Excellent value in a bed and breakfast that feels like a resort, with a swimming pool. (Jacuzzis/spas do not seem to be popular in South Africa). Full breakfast. Very secure and safe surroundings, though a wee bit off the main drag. The staff are very friendly and accommodating to your needs (specially when my credit card was hacked by someone... More

Stayed here for work in July 2016. The guest house is gorgeous, interiors stylish, bedrooms spacious, breakfasts delicious and staff pleasant and helpful. The guest house has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, and Portia and Veriana (spelling?) make you feel very welcome.

We stayed at Forest Manor Boutique Guest House for a day and it turned out to be a wonderful stay! The staff was extremely cordial and helpful. The rooms are indeed palatial and extremely splendid. The property is situated in an amazing location with a beach nearby. A memorable sojourn, indeed!

Tastefully decorated & professional establishment. We chose FM as it is close enough to Durban for the sporting event we were involved in, but far enough away for a tranquil environment. The staff were very friendly. Thoroughly recommend FM, especially the suite.

Well received when we arrived in this lovely house. The room we were allocated was excellent and the decor delightful and stylish. Since it was 'winter' in South Africa np air condition was needed.
