This place is a true gem - I stayed for only one night but the hospitality warmth and quality of sleep I had in just one night made me feel like I'd had a week holiday. I stayed in room 4 - which has a big terrace facing the sea, a roll top bath, powerful shower, sofa and a large...

Situated in an upmarket residential area with fabulous views over the Indian Ocean, this guest house really has it all. One of the biggest advantages being the onsite restaurant offering great meals for lunch and dinner at exceptionally good prices. My colleague and I had rooms 3 and 4, both of which were well furnished and spacious. Room 3 had...

From the minute we booked to the moment we (sadly) had to leave, the helpfulness, hospitality, charm and courtesy remained the key to our wonderful stay at the African Peninsula. The room (No 3) has a remarkable view of the beautiful Indian Ocean where every morning we awoke to the lapping of the waves on the shore directly beneath us;...

On arrival, we were checked in by Harry who makes you feel at home right away. The room we stayed in (no. 6) was spacious, with 2 separate bedrooms, a kitchenette, bathroom with a separate bath and shower and the most stunning view from a decking balcony / seating area which overlooks the Indian Ocean. Each morning you can hear...

Beautiful settings, some rooms need a refresher, but otherwise a great place, and a great restaurant on-site with talented young chef's preparing tasteful food. As a long term user (most weekdays of 2010) I got to stay in most rooms, and all of them are charming, and of different sizes and decor. Overall a pleasant stay away from home.

My husband and I unfortunately only got to stay here for 1 night before catching a plane out of the Durban area. The rooms all face the Indian Ocean, which is right down in front of you which is just gorgeous and it's tranquil and peaceful .The room was very nice, modern and quite large,with all the mod-cons, such as...

We found the Peninsula Guest House to be home away from home. The plus being that it is ocean facing with wonderful views and in a very tranquil setting. Even though we had rain during most of our stay, a wonderful time was had by all and we plan on returning!!! Soon!

We are currently staying at The African Peninsula. Beautifully and functionally decorated room with spacious, tastefully outfitted bathroom. Everything works well and the surrounding garden is lovely, contains two pools. The view from almost anywhere is fantastic. The Indian Ocean crashes beneath you, and the gorgous beach invites you to bathe, run or fish. The Peninsula features a nutritious and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are perfectly situated in a relaxing tropical environment but close to all the amenities of a city - shopping, business, industry, Golf Course & a wide variety of entertainment. We are almost in the heart of the city but it feels like we are on a tropical island!We are perched on the edge of the Indian Ocean and enjoy stunning sea views from dramatic storm clouds, to serene sunrises, dramatic whale sightings, playful dolphins in the surf, tranquil blue & turquoise water on a hot summers day, thundering waves that delight our surfers - the ever changing mood of our sea views are a sight to behold!To sit on your private deck and experience the sounds of the ocean and our natural life that surrounds us from the hum of the Christmas beetle, the shrill of the yellow billed kite, the rain cry of the purple crested Lurie, the chatter of the monkeys ..... it all connects you back to roots & refreshes your soul.We also offer a unique restaurant with stunning sea views & delicious stunning cuisine prepared by our full time chef.We look forward to being of service to you. ... more   less
