I found my stay over to be really pleasant, the atmosphere was relaxing but efficient which made it very pleasant as a work related stay over. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a stay over in Durban.

I had recently had the pleasure of working with an amazing bunch of people at the St James on Venice in planning the proposal to my then girlfriend. The dedication of the staff was remarkable and special mention goes out to Sithembile for her endless patience, advice and support in helping me plan the event. Furthermore, Siziwe the waitron on duty who was tasked with assisting me setup the venue was out of this world phenomenal. The evening duty manager (I cant remember his name) was on point and played his part too the tee. The chef, well let's just say I will be definitely going back more often thanks to the great dishes prepared. You all will go very far in life with kindness you have shown to me, my now fiancé and the family that had joined us afterwards.

To the management of the St James on Venice.

You have an amazing team working with you. From their warm smiles to their dedication in seeing what may have been a small event for the hotel through to the end (yet a massive event in my life). You really have gems working with you in your establishment. It is because of your team I will forever remember the 19th of July 2016 not only because of the proposal but because the service levels carried out by them was admirable to say the least. These qualities expressed by your staff are a true reflection of a management team who have succeeded in their endeavours in making the St James on Venice what it truly is. And it truly is, perfect in every way!

Once again, thank to everyone at the St James on Venice. You guys are AMAZING!

Stayed here for 5 nights. The service was excellent. Lindiwe and Thoba were very helpful. Lindiwe had such a warm personality it was a pleasure to see her each day. The room was comfortable but wifi for my room did not reach past the bathroom. The food was excellent. So good I ate there 3 times. Definitely recommend.

The St James is a wonderful place to stay! The rooms are comfy and bathrooms clean. Mine had a bathtub even!

I liked the wood floors, the quiet, and lovely courtyard for breakfast. No lines or wait. Great service all around
