About Westville, KwaZulu-Natal

Ekhaya Boutique Hotel Hat Icon
A place of timeless harmony

The beautiful, much sought after leafy-green KwaZulu-Natal suburb of Westville lies on the route of the world-famous Comrades Marathon, where each year thousands descend to participate in the ultimate human race. Although Westville boasts many excellent accommodation options, visitors hoping to find accommodation for the Comrades Marathon should make bookings well in advance.

Westville was named after Sir Martin West, Lieutenant Governor of Natal in the mid-19 Century, whose farm was later transformed into the up-market KZN Westville residential area we know today. And Westville has recently become a thriving business centre, with prestigious office parks springing up and attracting major companies and professional firms.

Westville Weather

Westville never experiences weather of extreme lows or highs. The Westville Winter is around a mild 22 degrees, and summer a balmy 30 degrees – the ideal environment which escapes the extreme heat of the Durban CBD summers, and the much colder Upper Highway Winter temperatures.
