What a terrible experience this was! From battling to receive a confirmation for our reservation, which took numerous phone calls to arriving. Thankfully the room was clean, but that was about it! We only had one towel and on requesting more towels we were brought an odd looking green towel and an even worse looking purple towel. Toilet did not... More

One of the worst hotels I have had the misfortune to stay at in South Africa. The room was dirty, the sink was clogged, towels were stained and no kettle, tea or coffee were found in the room. While there was a huge TV screen, only 3 channels had clear reception - well that was if you were lucky enough... More

A very disappointing experience, the room was shoddy with damp breaking out on the walls, lights with no globes, no toilet paper. The rooms are poorly sound proofed with guests hooting to get in the gate, doors slamming all night and neighbours noisy air cons switching on and off. Chicken dinner was undercooked and the chef hadn't bothered to show... More

My husband and I had a great 1 night stay here. Rooms are modern, exceptionally clean with a HUGE bed, DSTV and tea/coffee making facilities. The location is great. All the staff were very friendly and the service was perfect. Breakfast was tasty, but if you want the continental option, go down early as we missed the croissants. However, the... More

I recently had to stay in Durban at short notice. I was surprised at how expensive hotels in Durban have become which is why Hotel on the Park is such a find. Up the road from the Musgrave Centre and within a stones throw of vibey Florida Road, Hotel on the Park is a clean compact budget option with all... More

After an initial booking hiccup (confirm your booking), I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The room was modern, neutral and clean. The staff were all very helpful and friendly - there was a new chef and the food was great. The cherry on the top with this establishment though is its location. Within level walking distance of Musgrave... More

If the rooms of this hotel are cleaned, the shower situated in the room (clear glasses) is unpleasant and the breakfast service is a pity. Avoid it except for a single for business.

I booked 3 nights at this hotel a month ago and had a confirmed reservation through HOTELS.com. Credit card charged at the time too. I get an email today saying that the hotel was " unable to accept the reservation for my stay from Nov 11, 2011. I feel I have been grossly mislead by the hotel or Hotels.com

Durban was my hometown for many years, and on going back for a whirlwind holiday we decided to stay at Hotel on the Park as it was brand new. A little disappointing was the fact that our booking which we made through a UK travel site, was booked for the WRONG night and luckily there were rooms available. So a... More
