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 The TV in our room was so outdated and didnt even work.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

We had stunning views of the sea and the cheerful promenade. The hotel is situated on the Golden Mile and it is reasonably safe to take a stroll. The pier is a great walk. It is a wonderful feeling to be surrounded by water. The pavement along the marine parade houses stalls with stall owners enticing people to buy. Whether... More

Decor dated, breakfast buffet the worst ever. Sausages sour, no imagination. Same menu as 3 years ago to the dot. Salads prepared too long in advance. On arrival taking a shower, the water outlet fell of. NO parking. Windows so dirty you cant see through. Pity. It could be a great hotel agin. No interest from owner or personel. During... More

I had just gotten married and was hastily planning for our honeymoon when the thrill of visiting Durban just took over. We landed in Durban and were looking for a nice budget hotel that was a bit above standard. We fell in love with Beach hotel the moment we stepped in. With nice and comfy rooms, loved the english breakfast,... More

Absolutely loved waking up to the sound of the ocean and the fresh smell if the water. Its an inexplicable feeling. The view was amazing. The rooms were ok needed a bit of an upgrade. The location is good as u can easily stroll to the beach anytime. The staff where friendly and welcoming.
