About Estuary Country Hotel
The Estuary Country Hotel was originally built in 1941 as a Manor House in the Cape-Dutch style for a wealthy family. It has been cautiously transformed into a beautiful and private Hotel, Restaurant, Spa & conference centre. Its location on the KwaZulu Natal South Coast, near Port Edward and a few sandy steps from the protected Silver Beach make it an ideal base to explore all the area has to offer. Its genuine design and harmony of proportions, immediately reflects the work of a master builder.
Wake up to the beautiful views of the estuary and the call of our resident Fish Eagle, sounds that are truly Africa. We offer a total of 24 en-suite bedrooms, all air conditioned with private balconies. Relax and unwind in one of our luxurious bedrooms designed with comfort and elegance in mind. Sleep comes easy in one of our sumptuous beds, which we believe to be a very important part of your stay with us.
Our country styled Fish Eagle Restaurant is well known for its fine cuisine and has become one of the top five dining venues on the South Coast. Our head chef, Kyle Norris is renowned for his ability to produce dishes showing a fusion of flavours, he will take you along an unforgettable taste experience. Our menus emphasise the goodness of fresh, natural foods, carefully prepared and beautifully presented. Local produce and seasonal ingredients feature strongly. A superb selection of international and local wines will compliment your meal perfectly.
