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.

This hotel is very old and the interior needs some up-keeping. At night the area does not seem very safe so you must be careful. However, the location is great! It is right on the beach and only a few minutes drive to uShaka Marine World. There is a restaurant downstairs that you can go to for your convenience; however... More

There have been many negative comments about this hotel which made one a apprehensive. The experience was actually very good! As far as I could ascertain, the first 6 floors date from the early 1930's with the upper stories being a later addition. Despite the age, our 6th floor room was spacious and had a large bath (a rarity in... More

I paid $67 for a "guaranteed triple," which meant two double beds for three people. That's what i wanted. What I got was a large room with two double beds and a separate room down a little hall with a single bed. The extra room had its own window and door--perfect! The window in the main room offered a view... More

Recently check out of the Beach Hotel and the stay was amazing. Rooms are spacious with two "double beds", flat screen tv, split aircondition and room service for 14hrs. The stair cases are very clean,with neat new carpet -should you decide not to use the lift. Breakfast is very good compared to the known (narrow choice) South African environment. Most... More
