The wife and I wanted an easy run from the Eastern Cape to Durban so we decided to do one night in Kokstad. Most of the advertised and recommended accommodation are B&Bs "just outside town." The thought of searching for B&Bs just outside of town did not seem to be the way to have a convenient overnight in the metropolis of Kokstad. Then appeared the Nolangeni Hotel, touted to be in the CBD. Yes! We booked our one night in Kodstad, chilled at the Nolangeni Hotel, and enjoyed the visit. The old facility has been properly renovated and restored and dressed up to be a downtown hotel. I use the word "downtown" loosely. We ended our evening in the hotel pub where a crowd of locals entertained us with noise and laughter. If in the Kokstad area and longing for the buzz of the CBD then don't be afraid to book in at the Nolangeni Hotel. Great breakfast on the way out as well.
