Mackaya Bella Guest House
Ranked #3 of 258 Durban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 January 2016

We stayed in the self catering unit for 4 nights and one of the hotel rooms for 1 night. Both were comfortable and spacious with good air con. The pool was lovely and private in a tranquil surround, and the monkeys kept us entertained while we swam. Our hosts were extremely helpful, booking taxis for us daily and offering directions and recommendations as required. A highlight was the delicious and unexpectedly entertaining breakfast each morning. Highly recommended.

Thanks so much. It was great having you both and hope you come again next year (but maybe you'll let South Africa win the cricket this time! Trust you made it back safely and that the sunburn has healed.

I stayed for four nights in the student flat at Mackaya Bella in December 2015. Rates were very reasonable, the breakfast service was excellent, and many aspects of the room were very satisfactory. In particular the cleanliness of the flat and the quality of the linen stand out in my mind. The DSTV and internet access work well. The bathroom is excellent. I would definitely visit again.
