Recent additions and renovations done, luxurious and beautiful - tastefully done. Breakfast offers a wide selection of continental and hot food, delicious. Hosts and staff friendly and helpful. No assistance after hours however. Nice view from balcony.

Highly recommend place at posh and quiet part of Durban. We (along with my 3 year old toddler) stayed at self catering apartment with Ushaka, and we enjoyed every bit of our stay. This was a 2 bedroom apartment (one with double bed and other one with two single beds), well maintained kitchen with lots of utensils and cutlery. Apartment... More

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

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

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.
