Bon Ami, is a lovely place to stay. They serve good breakfast.Wifi connectivity is good. Plenty of cats running around as well. There is area for parking, and i think it is best fit for an official/business trip. One dislike would be the carpeted floor. It felt a tad too old and dirty.

We needed accommodation urgently, Cindy and her welcoming staff made sure we were well taken care of. Lovely pool area, well kept rooms. Amazing indeed. The location is perfect, right next to Florida Roa.

We stayed there 14 days. The management of the hotel ensured proper service and facilities. The place is very clean and well maintained. I will recommend this place anytime for anyone who is looking for quality at an affordable cost.

As a group of 7 Canadians it isn't always possible to satisfy everyone but Bon Ami certainly did its best. We stayed here 3 nights in May 2014 in the middle of an African Adventure. We were 2 couples and 3 single women. I loved how everything is centred around a large central courtyard area. The cars were parked securely... More

As a regular traveler, both on business and with my spouse, I like to help other travelers differentiate between romantic and business get aways. Bon Ami is a large establishment that is best suited to the exec who is in Durban for a week at a time. I would not recommend it to a couple on holiday looking for r&r.... More

“We stayed in the room just above the pool. It is large and has two beds. It might be noisy with a loud group in the bar but as we were the group, it was fine for us!”
