I did not have a car during my stay, however i can imagine that people with cars would have difficulties as i did not see any... More

This hotel has such a pristine location, it is a pity that they ownership have let it date inside. The rooms are very old yet totally functional and very clean. This hotel could be so much more with a bit of an upgrade. Service staff are fantastic.

Beach Hotel is a home away from home. I am definately going back there on my next trip to Durban. Everything is lovely, accommodation, food, their hosting. Everyone is very friendly. The place is a master piece

First it was a challenge to find the hotel as the address was conflicting on the GPS. Safety was a concern due to the area. I had to pay to use the hotel parking. Very limited restaurants within walking distance. Rooms looked dirty. Bed linen was not clean. Rather pay more to get better quality.

This was a very disappointing experience. The Beach hotel has friendly staff but is filthy and has an awful stench that permeates through the entire hotel, even into your clothes. The carpets and couches in family rooms are filthy. The TV in our room was so outdated and didnt even work. There are huge cocroaches running through the lobby area... More

This review is for the terrace restaurant at the Beach Hotel. Every time we go to Durban we go here for lunch at least one day. The views are great, the staff always friendly, and the garlic snails are to die for! A nice relaxing way to spend a lunchtime with a couple of cold castles! It hasn't changed in... More
