We originally booked 4 nights at Africa Regent while holidaying in Durban, and liked it so much, we stayed an extra 2 nights - we cannot fault it! The grounds are beautiful, the room immaculate and the wonderful hosts, David and Pam, are friendly and attentive. Little touches made for a delightful stay, like David kindly preparing sun loungers for us when we said we were having a lazy day, and our room being made up on a day when we'd left it particularly late in the afternoon, and didnt expect it. The bar is fantastic and we spent happy evenings playing darts and table football. The area feels safe, there plenty of restaurants 5 mins away, and in our opinion, contrary to another review, plenty to occupy a couple in their twenties like us. We spent 3 evenings watching sport/gigs at the nearby stadiums, and went to a bar/club less than 10 mins drive away in Newport Avenue. David and Pam are happy to offer any advice regarding things to do in the area. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone. Thankyou, David and Pam! From Hannah & Dom
