Had the opportunity to spend 2 nights at the Africa Regent guest house. David is very welcoming and accommodating and willing to provide direction to ideal places to see in Durban. The location is within walking distance of eating establishments and in a very safe and upscale area. I would have no hesitation in going back.

I suppose The Africa Regent could be labelled a few different things, 'Guest House' being one of them. It felt more like a mini-Resort to me, less like a B&B where you're invading someone else's home. The owners are mindful of this, and do an excellent job of not only making you feel welcome, but have done a great job making the Africa Regent spacious and private. They're also more than willing to chat when you're feeling the need to get outside your own head space.

My room was spacious and comfortable, less a bedroom in someone's house than it was a hotel room with all the fixings of a place you'd be happy to call your own. I only spent a couple of nights here, but would have had no issues extending my stay. Also worth noting is that there's a handful of good places to eat within walking distance.

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

My employer and I were participating in a craft beerfest over the weekend of the 3rd Aug, and stayed at this beautiful guesthouse with the most welcoming and comfy hospitality!!
David and Pam were exceptional at making us all feel like we were at our home away from home! From the stunning decor, to the immaculate rooms, to the unbelievable full English breakfast every morning..
It was a great experience, and caused for our stay in Durban be so much better indeed.!! We will certainly return! Thanks guys!

I stayed for one night at the African Regent, I was alone about to embark on a volunteer program the next day. I arrived at night and left the next morning and I recall the memorable part was the fancy home-made style breakfast I was served. I'll go there again next time I'm in Durban. Don't expect room service or anything, you're staying at someone's home and the host is very humble. Two thumbs from me.

This was in Sept. 2011

My husband decided to surprize me with a weekend away for our 1 year anniversary and he booked a room for us at this wonderful establishment. The room was spotless and very spacious and we had an amazing view of the pool and deck area. What made our stay even more pleasant was the fantstic hosts. Dave and Pam are such inviting and friendly people that they make you feel right at home. I can definately recommend this guest house to others and hopefully we will be able to return soon.

Clean, neat and comfortable stay any time of the year. I look forward to my next stay here.
The little bar and pool table downstairs makes for a great relax after business. Another big plus is the location - very close to a bunch of great restaurants.
