What a lovely place to stay in La Lucia. I stayed in this B&B in the lush suburb of La Lucia during the Indaba at the Durban ICC earlier this month. The location is convenient for business travellers as the Forest Manor is located close to the airport (15 min) and close to the Durban CBD (20 min). The safety features at the property are extraordinary and I felt safe and comfortable during my stay. The guesthouse is situated close to the beach and it is only a short drive to the shops and popular and excellent restaurants in Umhlanga and La Lucia. Very helpful staff at the guesthouse, there is always somebody there should you need anything. The breakfast was lovingly prepared. There was a family staying at the same time, and they seemed to enjoy their stay there a lot. I definitely will consider staying at Forest Manor again when I travel to Durban, either alone or with my family next time. I highly recommend this lovely B&B.
