I have stayed at Protea Hotel Edward several times during my visits to Durban and it has become my hotel of choice. Besides the stunning views of the Beachfront, they provide excellent service. From the porter service to the reception, to the restaurant staff to housekeeping. I am always treated like royalty. The food at the restaurant is always delicious!... More

The front desk staff are excellent and really treated me more as a friend than a guest. Really made me feel at home well don't to them. The room is comfortable and stylish. Hotel in wonderful condition for 103 yr old building. I found a few little black ants in the bathroom of room 318

We got an excellent price for our 2 night stay off of the internet. From the moment we walked in at the front door the hotel took our breath away. That chandelier, the flowers, the fragrant smells in the air, thats what memories are made of. The room exceeded our expectations! Thanks Protea for having us.

The Edwardian style entrance cannot be ignored, exquisite attention to detail of this era. The hotel is clean and all the staff were extremely helpful particularly since I had a 9mth and a 5year old. The staff were friendly and ensured the kids were accommodated. It is across the road from the amusement park for the kids. We all had... More

Excelent service combined with a 100 year old style. The hotel is excellently maintained with the original features making for a great atmosphere. Breakfast and dinner is served in a lovely dinnig room and the food is of a very high quality. The view of the ocean and city is beautiful and the location perfect to enjoy Durban

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Protea Hotel Edward harks back to a time of Victorian elegance. This world-famous hotel has played host to princes and presidents, field marshals, millionaires and movie stars since 1911. Whether you are travelling for business or leisure purposes, the Protea Hotel Edward is ideally situated on the Golden Mile. Take off your shoes and feel the soft, beach sand between your toes. Make sure you have your swimsuit because a dive in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean is hard to resist. Cool off whilst you walk along the promenade, which allows you to walk from uShaka Marine world to Suncoast Casino. For those travelling on business we are situated 5 minutes away from Durban CBD and the ICC (International Convention Centre). We are within easy access to all major highways and King Shaka Airport is a mere 35 minutes away so getting to all those meetings is not a hassle. Return to our graceful and stylish rooms, which are all equipped with LCD TV’s, en-suite bathrooms, executive work desks, wireless internet access and over half of the rooms have remarkable sea views. The Protea Hotel Edward with its personalised friendly service and extremely comfortable rooms offers a luxurious holiday experience or a professional business trip. ... more   less
