St James On Venice (SJOV) is a lovely little place with 15 rooms and a friendly and very efficient Meleney who runs the same.
We stayed there for 5 days and it was very much like home unlike a regular commercial hotel that one is normally used to.
If you are visiting Durban I would highly recommend the same.
Ask for Room #10 which is a corner room on the first floor.
Try their butternut soup which could be a meal by itself accomapnied by their home made bread.

We arrived at the hotel on January 17th. The staff was warm, friendly and efficient. The rooms were quaint and comfortable. We had dinner twice at the hotel's restaurant and the food was absolutely amazing! Everyone especially loved the famous butternut soup! 10/10, would recommend. Looking forward to another stay.

Beautiful place with great food and excellent hospitality.
The staff were helpful and friendly. The chef was very accommodating - I'm a vegetarian, the chef offered to prepare meals to suit my dietary requirements.
I'll definitely recommend this place to anyone in Durban looking for accommodation.

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.
