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.

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

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
