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...

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...

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.

We stayed in this guest house in Durban last November. It is run by a friendly British couple, David & Pam, who are always ready to provide guidance and advice as to what to do. The whole house is furnished immaculately and decorated in African themes – very impressive and to a high standard. It is also spotlessly clean throughout....
