From being met by Alfred to leaving after breakfast the next day I could find no fault with this guest house. It is definitely worth the 5 stars given. The room and the spacious communal areas were amazing. Breakfast choice was brilliant. Thank you.

Beautiful bed and breakfast at a good location near the Umhlanga centre and beach. Great room and bathroom. And a perfect laundry service by the ladies that also prepare a great breakfast. A very enjoyable 3 day stay!

My daughter and I had a wonderful three night stay at Forest Manor Boutique Guest House. The staff were welcoming, warm and helpful. The breakfasts each morning was generous and I could ask for changes or replacements because of my diet. Our room and bathroom was a great size, especially when I had to share with a teenager 😊 The staff went the extra mile for little things we needed which made our stay memorable and wonderful in such a beautiful part of South Africa!

We stayed for a week in Feb 2023. The property is very convenient to shops, restaurants and beaches. We felt safe at all times and enjoyed the pool and outside area. There is a well stocked honesty bar which is handy if you feel like a refreshment. They have a backup generator so load-shedding did not affect our stay and we could still enjoy an air-conditioning or ceiling fan when in our room. The breakfast was good and all staff were helpful and friendly.

A great stay and met very friendly staff. I will stay there again in the future. The breakfast was fullfilling and well presented. I chose a smaller room and should in the future consider another option
