When it comes to memorable stays along the KZN North Coast, look no further than the Salt Rock Manor. It is definitely among the best accommodation offerings in Salt Rock, Ballito.
Driving through the meandering Dunkirk Crescent in Salt Rock, we recently found ourselves this hidden gem. The Salt Rock Manor is located amongst numerous overhanging trees and makes for a scenic stay.
The small town of Salt Rock is located just to the north of Ballito – about 40km north of Durban. The town has long been a popular destination for tourists and this trend is continuing, especially with the amount of development that is currently taking place along the north coast of the KZN.
We were warmly received by the owner, Kim Blevin, who assured us we would be well looked after during our stay – I am happy to say, we were. We enjoyed the company of her staff, Sadie and Katie, who always greeted us with a smile and were always eager to ensure our stay was nothing short of amazing.
I would definitely say that it was their warm hospitality that made our stay memorable.
The guesthouse’s close proximity to the beach and a number of local restaurants, as well as stalls, makes for a great location.
The timeless elegance found at the Salt Rock Manor certainly made for an enjoyable visit.
Accommodation and Conferencing at Salt Rock Manor
This establishment has seven self-catering rooms available for visitors to choose from. Each one of their suites manages to maintain the privacy of its occupants.
I spent the night in Suite 3 and it consisted of a Queen-sized bed and two single beds. The room with the Queen-sized bed had a view of their luscious garden area.
I can confidently assume that the other guests we stayed with also had an amazing stay.
Each of their rooms is tastefully decorated and maintains a sense of elegance. This elegance is found throughout the guest house and is highlighted by the wooden furnishings that can be observed. The rooms are air-conditioned and come equipped with tea and coffee making facilities.
Complimentary Wi-Fi is found throughout and, thus, guarantees a great stay for businessmen, looking for a peaceful stopover on the North Coast.
I found the Salt Rock Manor an ideal venue to host a conference or private functions. Small groups can be accommodated comfortably in their facilities and the venue allows for a great retreat.

Dr. Manoj C. Sindagi added; “Fantastic place to relax and rest for the night after a long intercontinental flight. Close to the Durban airport, this is a well-equipped & cosy home. The hostess, Kim, is very friendly and makes you feel comfortable. The place is very well kept and well worth staying, if you are in the area.”
