I don't...

Virginia Forest Lodge is great accommodation for those looking to save money but yet enjoy the essential luxuries . The lodge is situated in a very upmarket suburb and immediately makes you feel at home . The rooms are adequate with ample space. Breakfast is served each morning from 7 till 9 , although there isn't much of a variety...

We had a pleasant stay in a comfortable room where the air conditioner did actually work. It had a balcony but could not use it as there was a party downstairs. The bed was comfortable and there were coffee/tea facilities. The fridge was on the balcony but the freezer section was totally frosted up, without ice. The bathroom was compact...

Been staying here on a few trips to Durban and enjoy it a lot. Great spot with great hosts and can certainly recommend it. Really close to great restaurants and close to the beach. Rooms are spacious and very clean.

Visited Durban and stayed at Virginia Forest Lodge from 21st to 23 June2013. The Lodge is very well positioned, close to M4 highway and yet away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and central to many of the popular suburbs like Umhlanga, La Lucia, Durban and Glen Ashley. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and well provisioned. The...

We booked Virginia Forest Lodge at the last hour when our plans changed. We couldn't have hoped for better. Mike and Arlene welcomed us like old friends! Mike arranged a takeaway for us to share by the pool and in the morning we had a few hours to spare before Mike drove us to the airport so he dropped us...
