I recently travelled to Durban to watch England play South Africa in the first rugby test match. I was recommended the St James on Venice. Thank you Lauren, great place! I had driven a long way to get there and even though I was late, the hotel had made up a cheese board for me. Knowing I was attending the rugby they also supplied me with snacks to help me through match day. Talking food, breakfast was great with a Durban twist of fried bananas in the full English. My room was huge and comfortable and very bright. The rugby stadium and new soccer were only a short walk away. I also walked to, and along, the beach front. I really enjoyed my weekend in Durban, and staying at The St James on Venice made it all the more enjoyable. (even though England narrowly lost!)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Originally the home of Corobrick founder Robert Storm who built it in 1892, the guesthouse is steeped in Durban history and retains much of its old world charm. The 15 bedrooms are individually decorated in a classically elegant style with some having a view over the century's old St James church while others look over the hotel's peaceful garden patio. Being close to the trendy eateries of Florida Road, Durban's beachfront, major sports stadiums (Kings Park and Moses Mabhida Football Stadium), golf courses and Jameson and Mitchell Parks means all Durban's attractions are just a short drive away. The guesthouse is ideal for small meetings, conferences and private dinners and is well equipped to ensure business runs smoothly and efficiently. For business guests, the guesthouse is well-placed for access to the ICC, as well as quick freeway access to the Umhlanga Ridge precinct. ... more less
