The concierge is one of those initially hard to find, but actually close to everything places. It's quirky, not the place for someone looking for the classic hotel experience, but behind the cool for school exterior is a hostelry that offers a warm welcome with the kind of meticulous attention to detail that guarantees a brilliant stay. The showers are... More

This smaller property is located in a Durbn neighborhood, safe and secure. Miko, the manager, met us and was welcoming and flexible. The room we had been given lacked a verandah and we were accommodated immediately. He was so pleasant that we will be back. Highly recommend this property though for some it will be too small.

in short everything about the rooms is amazing and I would highly recommend them! HOWEVER, service is seriously lacking. On Saturday morning I was woken up by the concierge himself and the cleaning lady talking at the absolute top of their voices for 30min right outside our room. Agin, the restaurant is amazing but service is shocking. I had to... More

Off-the-beaten tourist track just off Windemere and Florida. A hidden gem for visitors in search of originality and tasteful sustainable city renewal. African modern chic room with comfortable kingsize bed, walk-in shower, double basin, and shared porch. Designed and owned by chef Neil Roake. A great stay topped off with homecured salmon on eggs benedict and macchiato for breakfast. Divine!

Take off The Blinkers - This was an Awful "Hotel" more like a guest lodge. We had to be moved to 3 different rooms because of issues, the last one still had issues but was exhausted. The rooms (2 of them) smelt mildew and unclean, the one room the electricity kept tripping let alone the handles of ALL the rooms... More

Booked this online for a few nights and when we first drove i to the alleyway access we weren't quite sure what we were going to find. We were happy to find that you pull into a secured parking area. We went into the 'office' which is basically a desk area inside a small cafe that is made from a... More

OMG I was so disappointed. The room are super small. Beds so uncomfortable. I was missing my comfortable bed. I woke up with backache. We didn't even eat breakfast that's how disappointed we were! It was a last minute booking, we didn't have much choice. The location so bad, one small road.

We had such a great time at this place. All the staff were always smiling, the food was great and the tea was amazing. There's this relaxing ambiance about the place plus they had this little acoustic live performance on Sunday Morning. Will recommend this place to anyone anytime.

If you are looking for an urban feel to your holiday then this is the place to be. The food is gourmet and amazing. The rooms are comfortable and with everything you need. The whole place has a good branding concept which I really liked because I'm very different, I don't like normal things. Glass partitions of the room were... More

We spent two great nights at the Concierge. Loved the funky vibe, quirky decor, and music played in the cafe. It is a close walk to many restaurants on Florida Ave, and a 30 minute walk to the ocean, so no need to drive anywhere. Breakfast in the cafe was wonderful, several nice veggie options including a roti. It was... More
