We stayed at Africa Regent Guest House the night of the Comrades Marathon this past weekend. I think the important thing to note here, is that this place is now under new management, so remember that when reading the reviews...
If all you are after is a comfortable bed in a relatively peaceful setting, then this place will do fine. However, if you want to be able to unwind after a long day with a drink at the bar, then let it be known that although there is a bar there, they no longer serve from it. And believe me - although the runners might get straight into bed after a shower on Comrades day, the one thing that many of us supporters would have liked is a cold glass of wine - especially when I had specifically enquired about whether we would have that facility. Of course, I made my booking under the previous ownership and so was told "yes of course we have a bar!" only to arrive and be told "The ownership has changed and so now we don't use it".... Very disappointing indeed.
Also, although I had booked double rooms (as in rooms for two people sharing), two of the rooms only had towels for one person which meant that I had to try and get hold of someone to come and give us extra towels after they had locked up for the night... It was truly an odd situation.
That said, the selling points for this spot are clearly the location in Durban North and the beds which were good... I truly hope that the new management can "readjust" their advertised offering in order to meet expectations in the future. Good luck....

Room Tip: Rather pay a little extra for big room upstairs so that you are not disturbed when they start making breakfast at 6am...

Lovely owners, good central location with nearby restaurants and clean conditions. The prices could be lower as the value is not matched in full. We have stayed here for 4 years and are happy with the services.

Recently stayed at the African Regent with my family while visiting Durban. The hosts Pam and David made us feel safe and welcome. They were both extremely friendly and accommodating. The guest house is in an excellent location. There were three adults in my family and we stayed in the Leopard room. The room was spacious and exceptionally clean. It was serviced daily with fresh linen changed regularly. Our room was close to the garden area and the pool. It has free WiFi with good connectivity. Each morning we were treated to a delicious breakfast which included fruit salad, cereals and a full cooked breakfast of eggs, sausages, bacon and mushrooms. There is also tea and coffee available in the rooms as well as in the breakfast area.

The guest house is in a very secure and safe location of Durban North. There is secure parking space available for a car. It is a short walk from restaurants and shops and a short drive from the beach as well. I highly recommend the African Regent guesthouse and would definitely stay there again when I visit Durban. We had the most enjoyable and memorable stay here.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Leopard room which accommodates 3 guests and the elephant room for 1 night. All rooms are of a very high quality.

Nice place to stay in Durban. At night you can easily walk within 10 minutes to some restaurants. Spacious room with complementary tea and coffee. The bed in room 3 is a little passed through, the only disadvantage. You have a lovely balcony to sit on.
