Akidogo Guest House Guest Reviews
I was travelling with my aged mom - for her birthday. Ian and Magda took extra special care of her (and me) - and I can highly recommend this B&B to anyone.
I have really enjoyed my stay. I like the area as it is very quiet and next to the beach.If you enjoy the beach that is not too clustered and civilised, you know like the old beaches, Warner Beach is the place to go. I clocked in much later than 7 o'clock but was still recieved a very warm reception. Akidogo is very clean and the beds are very comfortable.

Our room was beautiful, very spacious, well appointed, clean and cared for in every detail; there is a small fridge, kettle, tea, Coffee, TV and air conditioner. The bathroom is nothing short of amazing, with a lovely large shower, double sink and plenty of toiletries. The owners (Germans) were very kind and they even prepared a hearty picnic lunch (we have even had lunch!).
Coming from the Hospitality industry and If ever i wanted a time out from the busy life and a relaxed atmosphere at some get away place, Akidogo is a place that takes you no where other than a relaxed and comfy environment with such pleasent people, Ian and Magda. You guys rock!!! Massive rooms with a calm ambience and short of nothing.

We really enjoyed our stay at Akidogo Bed & Breakfast. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Our room was super clean and neat and was also quite spacious. We had a delicious breakfast, there was almost too much to eat.

Ian and Magda know what guests want. We can truly say that we experienced an excellent stay in the comfortable, modern and spacious rooms. They made us feel at home away from home. The food is well prepared and more than expected. We shall recommend this Guest House to anyone who can appreciate only the best in life! Greatly appreciated!

A beautiful guesthouse with great hosts. Value for money and pleasurable! Highly recommended!
Akidogo is the place to be, everything there was on point, even the owners were very friendly. They do know how to handle their guests. The place itself is nice and clean. Thanks again TravelGround for showing me such places and thanks again to the couple at Akidogo.
Dit was volgens my vrou die lekkerste kusvakansie en verblyf. Gasvryheid en netheid het geseëvier.
Ons sal weer van Ian en Magda se gasvryheid wil gebruik maak. Waar kry 'n mens nog die gevoel van warmte en familie, en met spesiale tyd. Ook het Ian my bederf met een van my spesiale ontbyt-disse. Dankie julle twee!

Ons het voorwaar baie lekker geslaap tydens ons verblyf.
Die kamers was heerlik gerieflik met vars linne. Die ontbyt was smaaklik en daar was hope gasvryheid wat mens baie welkom laat voel!
Was great staying at your place, truly do miss it, we still talking about you guys to this day,you really made us feel home.

We had a wonderful stay at Akidogo with warm and friendly hosts Ian and Magda whose main aim is to please and make their guests comfortable and welcome. Our rooms were spotless and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be back for a longer stay the next time we are in the area.
Very nice place to stay. Lovely well decorated and clean room, very comfortable. Great service easy booking, and good communication. Good location, close to shops, mall, eating places. Serve a very yummy breakfast!!!
A very warm place and a warm welcome, truly beautiful. The host are very kind and the rooms are spacious with wonderful services. A perfect place for any day and anytime, also very easy to find. Would always come back

Magda and Ian really make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious, beds are very comfortable so you get a good nights rest. There's a lovely pool to cool down after a day's work. Its the ideal Guest House to stay whether its for business or holiday.

South Coast vs North Coast? The answer lies in your choice of accommodation! And what a way to rediscover KZN South Coast through the tranquil and comfortable Akidogo Guest Lodge....perfect location mid way to everywhere: Wild Coast Casino, Margate and splendid beaches on the south.....KIng Shaka Airport, North beaches, Shopping malls and Durban central on the north! Couldn't ask for more!!
One of the best bed and breakfasts we’ve ever stayed at. Quiet, clean and comfortable.To start off our weekend Magda waited up for us to check in as our flight was delayed, twice. Even upgrading our room (which was stunning and cleaned top to bottom whenever we were out). Ian then made arrangements for us the next day to pick up our hire car from the airport which we could not get for ourselves the day before as our flight was so late. Amusing and interesting stories around breakfast table while enjoying some delicious food and coffee of which there was more than enough. All in all an amazing place with amazing hosts.
Magda and Ian have turned their guest house into a haven of quiet and good taste. Beautifully decorated, well-equipped and catering to every whim. My breakfast needed to be Gluten-Free and dairy free and Ian cooked the perfect breakfast after consultation with his butcher to make sure the bacon and the chicken sausages were GF. Above and beyond the call of duty for a host. Definitely worth a return visit and a benchmark for guest houses
Akidogo is a lovely place to stay. It is very clean and the décor is top class. The owners are super friendly and the breakfast was good. It is very secure with plenty parking and the rooms and bathrooms are huge. Highly recommended.
Magda and Ian your hospitality is out of this world. This is our second time around and let me tell you the standard of this guest house are very high. Magda and Ian let you feel at home. The breakfast is well prepared and enough for hungry family. The rooms are beautiful, modern and spacious to accommodate a family. I can truly recommend anyone to stay at A’kidogo Guest House, you will not be disappointed. Friends for life!

...by the incredibly generous low price. I almost passed it by, but am very glad I made the booking. The accommodations were stunning. They were very comfortable and my daughter and I felt wonderfully cared for. I cannot recommend this place enough.
This is my third trip to this area of SA. I am traveling with my husband while he is doing business. Akidogo is my favorite of the places we have stayed!
The beach is a very easy, quick walk. We both like to run/jog, the beach as well as the road is great/safe for that. The grocery market is just a bit down the street as well. Right across the street is a laundry that has same day service and very inexpensive.
As for Akidogo itself; very clean, spacious room with large, lovely bath room. Our room had a Jacuzzi tub and large, tiled, open shower.
The bed is super comfortable.
There is a lovely spa a short drive away.
Magda and Ian are wonderful hosts! Magda suggested the spa and made the reservation for me. Because my husband had the car, Ian made a special service of driving me to the spa !
The breakfast is great. I really enjoyed the eggs cooked to order along with choices of accompaniments.
As I was by myself during breakfast, Ian was quite good at keeping me entertained with lots of pleasant conversation!!
We will happily return!

A Most welcome stay during a sad time as we had to attend to my fathers passing, friendly and compassionate owners who not only provided us with an excellent establishment but also with words of encouragement during our loss. I will be back most definitely.

I stayed for a week on a solo holiday. The room (excecutive suite 5) was beautiful, spacious and comfortable. All the little things are exactly as advertised for the room. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. I had a wonderful stay and highly recommend Akidogo.
- Mariette van Graan
Best holiday we had, very nice and peacefull.
Magda and Ian made us feel at home they are very friendly, the guest house is spotless.
Breakfast was divine. Highly recommended and will definately go back again
One of the friendliest and welcoming couples I've experienced on my travels. A home away from home!!
I'd definitely stay at akidogo again whenever I'm in amanzimtoti. And I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing and calm stay
- Billy Phitsane
Only there for one night, very pleasant, clean and well furnished. Magda and Ian made us feel very welcome - we had absolutely no hassles. Even the monkeys were welcoming! Would definitely stay there again.
