Really bad lack of maintenance. Bad attitude lamp shade held together with masking tape, torn sheets and curtains. Broken air conditioning and it was 38deg C. Dirty common areas with broken benches. Unattended by any staff because it was Xmas. Can't believe it has 4 stars??? Bathrooms were nice but had a leaking pipe under basin.

Stayed at this hotel in February. Had a great stay and thanks to Cheryl for being so helpful. First time in Durban and on my own it was a lovely base and safe place to be. Helpful staff, great security, take away breakfast and access to computer to Skype home. Couldn't have had a better stay anywhere.
