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.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the guest house, the staff were very plesant and easy to talk to, nothing was to much bother. The place was kept spotless, breakfast was good and the fact you could eat outside made it even better. I also liked the honesty bar, well done guys see you next time.

My husband and I stayed in The Manor Suite at Manor Guesthouse for 4 nights. An absolutely beautiful guesthouse and the suite was 5 star. Would definitely recommend this lovely guesthouse! Central to all restaurants, shops and the beach.
