Value for money for those who require a reasonable rate for a Durban holiday or business trip. Staff are friendly and helpful, my room was upgraded for a bigger room without cost and I could check out late to leave for the airport in the afternoon.

I would love to see a change your floors, put new carpet outside rooms, separate places for non-smoking people. reduce the parking fee to R 15 per day. luggage price should stop carry for free if items are fewer.

I just wished to have secured sea view but it was packed. Even though I got parking but parking has always been an issue previously and had to park on the streets of Durban which I don't find safe at all
