I didn't stay at belaire suites but ate at Cafe Jiran. Food was awesome. My friend and I both had meat platters. Definitely would eat there more often if I didn't reside in UK. Keep up the good work Trish Allanson

We loved our 2 nights at the Belaire Suites. The room was huge and looked over the Indian Ocean. We watched the sunrise from our room. Incredible!! The staff was very accommodating. We got in really late the first night and were so tired from our long trip. We decided to eat in the restaurant in the lobby and we... More

We tried to book a visitor into this hotel a few nights ago but the service was far from that of a star rated hotel. We were told by reception that only one person could assist with the booking and after a 20min wait, that person still didn't pitch. On top of that, we saw a rate on the internet... More

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...
