Second time we stayed at the courtyard. It is a little hard to find, tucked behind the old Bean Bag Bohemia. The Hotel consists of a few bungalows arranged around a gravel courtyard, with the reception and Freedom cafe sitting at the top. The hotel is "sausage dog themed" which is a nice way to make customers smile. Rooms are... More

We spent 1 night. We had 2 lovely rooms for 4 of us. The rooms were small but updated. The bathrooms and showers were wonderful. We enjoyed coffee and breakfast in the cafe. Free internet. Secure parking lot. Close walk to a nice Indian restaurant for dinner.

This is a 'hotel' with a difference. Robin, the Manager, is a very helpful host and runs a special place. Owned by someone with a bit of a vision for interior design, they have produced a place which is interesting to stay in. Good restaurants nearby - Indian and Italian.

We stayed at the concierge in a weekend escape to Durban, based on the comments we read in TripAdvisor. The Hotel is well located in a quiet area, you will need a car to explore the city though, but you need a car everywhere in SouthAfrica, so that's not a problem. The hotel is beautiful, with nice details (like the... More

Not only were the staff welcoming and friendly, the rooms were comfortable and clean! And their not joking about it being an Instagram paradise. And do yourself a favour, make sure you have lunch there.

I needed a place to put my head down overnight while on business. I didn't expect more than a clean room. I was completely blown away by the Concierge. Their entire image is pretty slick. Rooms are uniquely decorated and are quite interesting. The best part was the shower which dropped so much water on my head that I felt... More

The room was stylish without being uptight. It had a huge drenching shower and a lovely patio off the room. The style is eclectic modern. Freedom Cafe which is the restaurant of the hotel had fantastic food and is well known in Durban for it's breakfast and lunch. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They went out of their way...

Stayed here with four people in June 2015. Customer service was terrific! The rooms were fun and had a little dog theme going on, which we loved. The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast at the cafe was fantastic and there are amazing cakes on the counter at all times. I loved the fact that... More

Four of us stayed here for a few days in June. Amazing breakfast, delicious coffee and superbly comfortable beds! The customer service is exceptional. Miko the manager even found me an adapter for the rest of my trip. Cannot recommend any other place more. Loved it and will be back!

We stayed at the Concierge for two nights while on a tour exploring Durban. It is located in a quiet road in the Berea, within walking distance to the vibey Florida Road which has some really great restaurants and nightlife. It shares a premises with Freedom Cafe which is a huge bonus as it really is a great place to... More
