Top end: The city’s grande dame is the Oys­ter Box ( pic­tured; oys­ter­box­ho­tel.com) in Umh­langa, where guests will find mid-cen­tury glam­our, quirky Zulu art­work and su­perla­tive cui­sine. All bed­rooms face the sea, as does the stand-out Ocean Ter­race. Dou­bles from R5,926 (£318) per night.

Mid-range: The high-rise South­ern Sun Elan­geni & Ma­ha­rani (tso­go­sun.com/south­ern-sunelan­geni-ma­ha­rani) is front and cen­tre on the Golden Mile, and its stylish, com­fort­able rooms de­liver sweep­ing ocean views. Ask also about bike hire. Dou­bles from R1,900 (£100) per night.

Bud­get: There’s a pleas­ing mix of ages and na­tion­al­i­ties at the har­bour­side Happy Hippo (hap­py­hip­po­dur­ban.co.za). Room op­tions span six-bed dorms to en-suite dou­bles; the rooftop bar is also a great place to min­gle. Dou­bles from R600 (£32) per night.
