The Benjamin, Durban

Mid-range - ££


The Benjamin is a simple but characterful 41-roomed hotel in the sophisticated Morningside suburb of Durban. Its place on Florida Road means it’s not far from a few modern restaurants, bars and shops, as well as the golden beaches Durban is famous for.

You should also visit some of the key tourist spots; try the Moses Mabhida Stadium, the Kings Park Stadium and the Suncoast Casino for a bit of fun. And, go to the nearby Durban Botanic Gardens – they’re incredible. Make sure you spend a day or two sunning yourself, swimming in the warm ocean or even trying your hand at water sports like surfing and stand-up paddle boarding. This will give you the full Durban experience.

The hotel’s rooms are designed to make their guests feel like they’re at home. The warm wooden furnishings give them a cosy feel. All the rooms have the standard amenities you’d expect plus a few added extras. Most have a balcony and some open out onto the hotel’s gardens.


After a long day of exploring Durban, take a dip in the bright blue swimming pool. It’s a great place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet.

The on-site restaurant serves delicious hot and cold breakfasts all morning. They’ll give you enough energy to explore the incredible city. Sadly, there’s no dinner menu, but don’t worry – there are plenty of restaurants surrounding the hotel, so you definitely won’t go hungry.
