Great location. Lovely big old and established property. Sparkling clean. Great brekky and John and Paddy are lovely! You'll need a car to get to the sights and sounds of Durban or even if you are there on business.

Hi, The Convention centre is too far to walk, about 10 minutes by car. Taxis available on requests. We have many guests staying here for Conferences, they all take taxis or have hired cars Regards John Chance
