Great place to stay if you want to be close to all the action on Florida Street. Intimate, warm and friendly. Our stay included breakfast. The staff was very helpful and kind. It felt like a home away from home.

Room Tip: best value

We had a two night stay over at St. James on Venice in December, it was delightful. The people were so friendly and helpful, the owner checking in at breakfast in the mornings. The room was very spacious, neat and tidy. The hotel is close to the Madiba Stadium, nice and quiet during the day and in the evening. Recommended for a nice escape when you are looking to relax and do your own thing.

Got here on 23rd December, found the receptionist very helpful, had a friend coming in next day so need single beds, had double for 1 night then they split the beds, any info about durban was no problem to melanie and her staff, egen at 4am when i woke for a drink i was served, an intimate place that likes to look after their customers from phoning different people to printing cricket tickets nothing was any trouble

It was a pleasure to host the 'Barmy Army' and I hope that you and your friends enjoy the rest of the cricket series in South Africa.

Although they advertise hi-tea for R85 per person, or R100 per person if you are a group of 15 people or more, they in fact will NOT ACCEPT less than a group of 15 people, what the heck that is rediculars

Visited this hotel for one night. We found the hotel to be very quaint and amazing. The rooms are modernly furnished with all amenities. The breakfast location is amazing and so peaceful. It was a night worth the price. ..
