Stay at this hotel was excellent. i love the new rooms. its absolutely spacious. offers breathtaking views and excellent service and assistance from all employees. breakfast buffet was everything you would expect from an establishment of this nature. the only negative criticism i can offer is that the parking fee is a bit too steep.

Warm & Friendly from the moment you enter until the time you leave. Greeted with a smile even by the security guard. Panoramic views of the warm blue indian ocean from every room on every floor, including the breakfast room.

This used to be the hotel I called the "home away from home" when in Durban. My last experience is however that the standard has dropped dramatically. It is a pity for such a well located hotel. The rooms have been refurbished and are of a better quality than in the past, but that's about all. Breakfast experience was a... More
