Double room are just for couples or an adult and a child. The rooms are so tiny and uncomfortable for two adults. Some people of the staff are nice, other are so rude. Breakfast has good options. The location is a bit far of the touristic attractions, but taxis are not expensive. WiFi works well.

I stayed at this hotel for five nights. The stay was comfortable, safe and pleasant. Very neat and clean property at the center of the city. But the rooms and the toilet bathrooms are so small in reference to the rent the hotel is charging. Not having inhouse restaurant is a major drawback. Available alternatives at the morning breakfast are... More

Hi there, thank you for your review. Thank you for the compliments you mentioned. Please note that as this is a budget hotel, there are certain features it does not have – including an in-house restaurant. The rooms are small, but we do believe that they offer value for money. Our apologies about the bugs and the staff – we... More

Bad service worst staff..!!! No wifi provided..!!! Bills of other rooms mismatched. Plus we found someone else using our room. This just sucks..!!! Find a better place to stay nearby. Also the location is odd and away from the main beach..!!!

Nice short stay at this hotel. . Prices are generally high in Durban but, this came at reasonable price. Breakfast only continental and no restaurant. Conveniently close to ICC where I conducted my business. TV is a very small old one. ... not that it was much in use though. Enjoyable stay for me.

Excellent place to stay if you are on a tight budget or just need a place to sleep then leave early. Rooms are small but have all the basics like tv, air conditioning and a shower. Excellent hotel for the price you pay.

I have stayed two nights here on a business trip. I am happy I saved my company at between R 600 and R 1 600 per night, while still receiving very good service in outstanding, clean facilities.

From the moment you walk in the lobby, the awful stench of cigarette smoke ASSAULTS you. I had hoped it would be better at the "non-smoking" side of the hotel (the hotel seems to be divided into two halves), but the room I was in was the worst-smelling hotel room I've ever had to stay in. It was a combination... More

This is a budget hotel, so if you set your standards appropriately, you'll find it all right. Without a car, you'll need to get taxis everywhere (R50 to the beach). The room was fine. The hotel needs more people on reception as the staff was quite overwhelmed at times.

The hotel is good value for money! Rooms are clean, the Receptionists are friendly but they should do better in knowing their city so that they can properly advise visitors! Had a wonderful stay......Will cime again! KFC Malawi
