The Beverly Hills of Durban
The Forest Manor B&B is an oasis by the sea. We arrived to a welcoming and hospitable staff who was more than accommodating to our every need. While the overall stay, the daily breakfast, the ambiance and location were more than we could ask, the bathroom was not 100% clean on arrival. Staff quickly remedied the matter and we were not the least bit inconvenienced. Would absolutely stay there again!!

They were so helpful and accommodating. We had problems with our rental car, so they secured us a taxi for our trip to the airport. This place was beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast and staff were wonderful.
