On a recent holiday to South Africa I stayed at the Akanan Guest House, which is very close to Durban. It was by far the best accommodation throughout our three week trip, the rooms were super comfortable and had all the modern facilities we required. The commual areas could really be considered as 5 class, especially with the dramatic sea views!
The family is amazing and have such interesting stories to share, we were really able to learn a lot about the culture and enjoy some delicious home cooked South African food. The location is ideal and only a short walk to the beach.
If you want luxury accommodation with warm and friendly hosts, this is definitely the place to stay!
