I spent my honeymoon here at the African Regent Guesthouse. The atmosphere was perfect, felt completely comfortable. The view from the Penthouse was spectacular & the African vibe is magnificent. I intend on spending my 1st year anniversary here. I really loved everything here. To the management and all staff a job well done. Best Regards. Rishawn & Shiksha Rohan....

Comfortable, spacious and very clean rooms. It is a quick taxi ride to the beach and boardwalk area. There is a game room with pool table and honesty bar where we spent most our night just having some fun as we were there only one night traveling with another couple. It's a pleasant and very safe 10 minute walk to...

I stayed for two nights at the Africa Regent. It was an easy access from King Shaka Airport after our flight from Europe. The friendly and helpful advice of the two Gentlemen now looking after the Africa Regent was an important element in easing us into the South African experience. The location is fabulous. With the car the City Center,...
