Not a four start hotel. What is nice? Location, the beds and bedding, the vibe. What is not nice? The lifts (one was broken), noisy passages, no view of sea unless you stand at the window, crowded breakfast, cold breakfast food.

I enjoyed my weekend at the Belaire. The bed was very large and comfortable and the view from the room was stunning. (I asked for a room on one of the top floors). The location is great for all beachfront activities. The room itself isn't very luxurious but the price is really reasonable and there's everything you need to be... More

The Bel Aire is in a converted building of flats designed in the 1950s by the noted Durban architect Reginald Charles Buck, who died earlier this year. The building's modernist facade incorporates mosaics patterned on Zulu bead work, one of the few modern buildings of its time to incorporate traditional African design (and one of the few even now that...

Nonchalant non existant service and planning. On arrival at 20h20 I was informed that electricity was to be disconected from 2100 to 05h00. Given a torch to walk up to the eigth floor via dark stairwell.Electricity maintenance could have been scheduled for during the daylight hours. Staff had a nonchalant attitude one of take it or leave it. Very dissapointing.

As we were going to Indaba, we booked that hotel on North Beach in Durban. When we saw the hotel from outside, it looked a bit old. But actually, we've been nicely surprised: the rooms were very spacious, very clean and with all what you need. And the best surprise was the breakfast, diversified, and with very helpful waiters.

Great breakfast, friendly staff - esp Thoko and Kobus on the front desk. Lovely extra touches. Room service especially hot beverages could run a bit later. Staff were very helpful. Thank you for a good stay.
