My fave Durban hotel (either this one or Quarters Florida Road). Love the smell. The decor. The location. The opulence. The service. The size of rooms and bathrooms. The linen. The baroque decor. Avondale's restaurant was pretty appalling (no wonder I was the only one there) and the carpets in the hotel need a damn good clean. It would be... More

I stayed here with a group of colleagues doing a study tour. The hotel itself is lovely and the rooms and decor beautiful. My room had a large bath and big, separate shower. Breakfast was good, although they did struggle on occasion with the large group. On your own or in a couple would not have any problems I am... More

This was my second stay at this hotel. I found the hotel to be neat and attractive. It is well situated, away from the city centre, but with easy access to beach, Moses Mabida and ABSA Stadiums. Florida Road with its wide choice of restaurants.

I booked this hotel since my favorite in the city was fully booked and upon arrival was adamantly told I had booked at their sister hotel in Florida even after I showed the receptionist my booking confirmation she argued that the lady booked me into the hotel in Florida, then only to be told she has to check the rates...

We had a great room after moving twice - once because they didn't read the reservation for twin beds and once for noise - ask to be in the out building. Joel in restaurant was awesome. Cynthia at the desk was less than helpful - no map, no help with tours, no one extra hour for checkout and attitude.

There is no doubt that Quarters on Avondale is situated in a great spot - sure, it's a bit noisy with daytime traffic, but that's how cities are. Things quiet down nicely in the evening. The staff is attentive, knowledgable and efficient. Our room was clean and well appointed with a beautiful bathroom. A quick walk to Florida Road means... More

After enjoying a sumptuous breakfast buffet; my phone rang to inform my breakfast was included in my room-rate. Very appreciative, honest, recipient thanked my repeatedly for my modest tip. Selected this place because... More

This was the 3rd time we've stayed here, so we must like it - the rooms are generally spacious, all are well appointed and with good quality furniture. The breakfasts are a delight and the staff are always helpful. Our only disappointment was that there is now no bar in the hotel, nor do they do evening meals. We were... More

The hotel is such a nice surprise from your normal Durban hotels. The modern hotel set in the beautiful gardens is a lovely retreat from the hustle and bustle of Durban. My favourite was to sit outside in the garden and watch the world go by. The rooms are large and spacious with great bathrooms and all needed facilities. The... More

We stayed at Quarters on Avondale Road in for 1 week in December 2011, over the christmas period. The hotel is modern with a quaint vintage feel to it. The staff are extremely helpful. The room feels luxurious, the bathroom and shower just perfect. Our room had a balcony with a view. The room rate includes breakfast, alacarte. This is... More
