Awesome location and view from the room. The pros are that the room was clean and just 'big' enough. We were booked in a family room which had 2 tv's but we were only given a single remote. Breakfast was just average but one could get full. I was there for 3 nights and on all occasion that I had... More

For a brief one night stay it wasn't too bad but we won't be staying again. POSITIVES: great view from our balcony, perfectly located on the main promenade, close to restaurants, uShaka and the local parade. Our shower was great and the breakfast staff were super friendly! Big thumbs up to them! NEGATIVES: No security for our car. We had... More

Nice hotel in the center of Durban. Very friendly staff. Clean, cheap and a nice view from the balcony to the sea. The breakfast is very good, nothing to complain. A security guard at the hotel keeps everything safe. The bar downstairs is also to be recommended, the bartender will tell you anything about Durban.

This hotel does need some TLC, but is very good for the price. The staff makes you feel at home and the view was epic. After some renovations along the corridors and elevator this hotel will be in tip top shape. One of the best hotels I've been to...
