We stayed one night in Botany Bay and found the location perfect. The room was clean and neat and we met one of the owners, Stacey, whom was extremely helpful and friendly and even dropped us off in Musgrave, which was a huge help. If you are looking for a friendly location to explore Durban, this place was perfect for our needs.

It was a lovely place and the breakfast was yummy! It was homely BUT the location is a bit dangerous and parking space was small.
