I stayed for three nights and enjoyed every aspect of my stay. The room was large and in excellent condition, service was excellent and the quiet location close to good restaurants and the King's Park complex where we were based.

small hotel, great rooms, friendly service, used as a first stop from airport, easy place to wind down in after a long flight. G and T at the bar just gets the holiday started in the right mood, followed by a good nights sleep and superb breakfast

Stayed here for an overnight and after a poor experience at our previous hotel, the Audacia Manor was a much welcome change. The room was beautiful as well as the bathroom which stepped out into an outdoor shower and jacuzzi. It's a small hotel so there isn't a huge staff. Marilyn is amazing. Such a nice person and she works incredible hard at her job. My only problem with the hotel was the recommendations made for dinner. I was looking for a nice night out and the restaurant recommended was a very casual beach joint not a place I'd want to go for a night out without the kids.

I recently spent a night there with my fiance for his birthday. From the second we got there, we were greated with huge smiles and we were helped with our bags to our rooms. We had the Superior Deluxe which is thee most beauriful room I have ever stayed in, including your pwn personal outdoor jacuzzi. We enjoyed our night and especially breakfast the next morning.

Will definitely be returning!

Room Tip: If your're a couple - dont miss out on the Superior Deluxe!

Audacia Manor is truly the most beautiful hotel in Morningside, Durban. It has the most spectacular views of Durban from the stadium to the sea. It is extremely well kept, the gardens are spectacular and what made it more than absolutely amazing... were the staff and the high level of service they provided.
Karen and her staff go out of their way to make each guest / person feel special and cater for everyone’s needs.
My daughter celebrated her 18th birthday as well as her Matric dance pre-drinks at Audacia Manor and we could not have wished for a better venue.
The food was delicious, the staff were amazing and the way they decorated the venue with candles and rose petals made the evening so special.
Thank you Karen, Jean Francois and staff for a night to remember.
