First time to stay here; facilitating training. Centrally located hotel. First, I would like to commend staff on all levels for their above-excellent customer service and care. Secondly, my room on the 4th floor was comfortable, very clean and spacious. I appreciated having a fridge in my room; also a kettle - hair dryer on request. Further, restaurant on site... More

I really enjoyed my one week stay at this location. I was shocked and somewhat in disbelief that there was a strongly negative review from 2009 because my experience was fantastic. Iwas personally driven by the owner and his daughter for a competitive price (We called a taxi and he agreed to drive us for R50 less). The room I... More

Management was A mazing! They provided a ride for my friends and me each day to go whereever we wanted. Food was deliciouso and the rooms were spacious and clean. I especially liked the 24 hour room service. For it to be in the heart of downtown Durban the prices are really competitive. I'm 2 minutes away from the beach.... More

This hotel is abhorrent. I had booked four nights here and arrived late in the evening. When I saw the room, I was shocked. The lock on the door had been changed more than twice; there was evidence of it having been forced; there was mould all over the cupboards with a strong smell of anti-mould chemical in the room;...
