Located less than 30 minutes away from Durban, you will find the small yet vibrant town of Amanzimtoti. During my recent visit to the town I had the chance to stay at 305 Guest House.
My stay was met with bucket loads of rainfall. Once we had parked in the secured parking area, we made our way to reception. The staff was friendly and they showed us to our room. We took our bags up and took a deep breath, it was time to relax.
We had the chance to walk through the facilities at the guest house and I was truly impressed, they have such an all-round offering and I can see why 305 Guest House has become such a popular destination for holidaymakers.
Our room overlooked the wonderful Indian Ocean, the views and sounds of the waves lapping on the shore are the very definition of relaxing. It is easy to see that the morning sunrise would be quite a spectacular sight, a view which can be enjoyed from the comfort of your room or the veranda area.
I spent some time unwinding on the veranda, taking some time to gather my thoughts. I watched as the rain fell around me and I was glad that the roof allowed me to still sit outside without the worry of falling victim to the weather.
I decided to go and explore what they had to offer, I did notice that the guests were still enjoying themselves in their communal areas. It is clear to see that come rain or sunshine, you can take a load off here.
Our room was comfortable and it contained all the amenities one would expect. Our room was not self-catering, although they do have self-catering rooms available. Their stays include breakfast, whilst dinners can be arranged with the team.
Due to the fact that we had to leave very early as we had a long drive ahead, I informed the staff that we would not be able to enjoy our breakfast during my visit. The staff was so kind as they made us a packed meal, this was greatly appreciated.
It is often these small moments of kindness that stay with you and this was one of the highlights for me.
Despite the incremental weather we were faced with, our stay at 305 Guest House was certainly a memorable one.
Accommodation at 305 Guest House
This oceanfront property is a luxurious 4 star graded guesthouse in Amanzimtoti. They have a huge selection of rooms and each of them is individually decorated. This is something that surprised me as it can be so easy for larger establishments to simply design all rooms to be the same.
The accommodation at 305 Guest House can only be described as comfortable. Their various room types allow for guests to choose exactly what they are looking for during their visit.
We stayed in a Sea-facing Upstairs Room and in addition to the King Sized Bed, there were bunk beds for our stay. I did feel like a child again that had gone on holiday. Although the weather did not allow us to venture to the beach or sit on their stunning chairs which overlook the ocean, we were not too perturbed as this was the final leg of our trip and we were quite exhausted if I had to be honest.
Whether you are on the lookout for a romantic retreat, family holiday or simply a group of friends wishing to enjoy all that Amanzimtoti has to offer, then you should head over to the 305 Guest House.
