I stayed over only one at this boutique hotel and I immediately wanted to extend my stay because of the team of friendly,hospitable people working here. Jean made personal contact with me and ensured that I was adequately looked after. The cleaners to the evening waiter and the reception staff are definitely cut off from the same cloth of respect,humility...

We stayed at this boutique hotel on a Friday and Saturday night before we flew back to Cape Town. We were very warmly welcomed by wonderful host called Jean Franshoir. From the moment we arrived we really felt at home. It was our 4th stay in a Marriot hotel in a 10 day period. We arrived 2 hours too early...

A boutique hotel it is . Occupying corner, tis a Friendly institution that is ideal for family, leisure , business as well tourist The English breakfast taunts taste buds. For those not allergic to water, an Olympic size swimming pool completes the equation. Indeed tis the Pride of Morning Site

I stayed a night at the African Pride Audacia hotel. Really lovely hotel with friendly and accommodating staff. Food was excellent. Room was large and felt really comfortable - much better than many hotels. Highly recommend.

I must make it clear that I visited a friend at this establishment and had our dinner at the restaurant, my experience is limited to the restaurant.

Nice hotel with friendly staff and some nice features but this is definitely not African Pride standard. I've stayed in better 3 star hotels and guest houses in SA. For the price you are paying here you'll get much better value for money on the Durban beachfront at one of the TsogoSun hotels or Protea Hotel King Edward. Umhlanga also...

WE booed in for 2 nights during our recent touring trip to South Africa. Most of the other places we were staying were game lodges etc., so this was a short city break. What a delight.
