Built in 1928, Audacia Manor is a beautifully restored family home tucked away in a cul de sac on the slopes of Morningside, an upmarket suburb of Durban. Inspired by English 'home-county' design, the silky wood panelling, generous verandas and gently landscaped gardens of Audacia Manor offer you a warm, old-school welcome.

The manor house is yours to enjoy so make yourself at home as you sink into comfortable sofas in the spacious, cool drawing room with a good book, or explore the herb garden off the Ascot Conference Room. Then it's time to head out and visit the amazing Ushaka Marine World, Moses Mabhida Stadium or Blue Zoo. Alternatively, venture onto Durban's Golden Mile and relax on the beach or try a bit of shopping, nightlife and cuisine - Durban style.

Superior Room

The décor at Audacia Manor is influenced by the English home counties and this ambience is reflected in the unique styling of each of the 10 bedrooms. As befits the manor's reputation for quality, all of the bedroom suites are appointed to the highest standards with inviting king-size beds, full-size bar fridges and a satellite TV plus tea and coffee making facilities.

The air-conditioned rooms are fully en suite and you can relax as you slip into the complimentary bath robe and slippers whilst running yourself a bubble bath in the marble and mahogany bathrooms.

The six Manor Rooms located in the main building are furnished with graceful mahogany furniture - five of these rooms have balconies offering panoramic views of the city.

Other Room Types

Located in the former coach house, the four spacious Coach House Rooms have a classic Victorian four-poster bed, double vaulted ceilings and stunning hardwood floors. Each room opens onto a private courtyard with spa-bath and outdoor shower.


Cool off from the day's heat in the 22m swimming pool, a facility that also features a 'smoker's bar.'

Prepare for a night out or a chance to de-stress with a pre-arranged massage or beauty treatment with the in-house beautician.


Breakfast is served on the shaded veranda overlooking the landscaped gardens and the Indian Ocean beyond; you can also take morning or afternoon tea in this delightful location.

Gourmet meals, accompanied by a wide selection of fine South African wines, are available in the Ascot Dining Room or the Epsom Private Dining Room throughout the day.

Before dinner you can sip a sundowner at the Verandah Cocktail Bar and enjoy magnificent views of the bay.
