The manor is spacious and the small number of rooms and great service makes for a luxurious experience. The hotel experience was great - the one warning is that the WiFi was frustratingly slow. Their modem my predate the manor.

We stayed in a beautiful, elegant and spacious room. Our private balcony was a perfect addition. The bathroom was also incredibly spacious and the fact that it had a ball and claw bath was just up my alley. Staff were helpful and friendly and the views of the city and sea were delightful.

A quiet place with a great view over Durban. Really service minded staff that help you with anything that you asked for. It was clean and fresh and the room was really big and felt luxury. Had a really nice veranda where we spend the whole evening sipping on a glass of wine.
