    The Protea Hotel Edward, now part of the Marriot Group is one of Durbans iconic landmarks on the Marine Parade. Good value in big rooms with a decent view. Restaurant needs a bit of attention but the curry wasn't too bad.

    Yes... it is approximately 1.5kms from the centre, safest route is along the upper marine parade during the day light hours or a scenic walk along the Beachfront, I would recommend a taxi after dark,
