It is great that the hotel is undergoing major refurbishment and a lot of unsatisfactory circumstances will addressed. A year from now the hotel will be a perfect destination. Breakfast is excellent..

If more time or a 24 hours service for dinner can be allocated, because we had spent more time traveling into deep rural areas or villages and conducting oral history interviews with local communities, meetings with colleagues from the Provincial government and your local municipalities, hence it required to spent more time away from the hotel and when we came...

The service was outstanding just one incident when a waiter said there is no decaf coffee , but overall it was great and if they can just try to have more variety like your chicken sausages so that ppl who don't eat pork are covered as well

The staff is friendly, Durban is beautiful and best of all you are right at the beach if you stay here. The food at the restaurant is fine, not gourmet but not bad at all either.
