I have stayed at the Parade Hotel during two stays in Durban. Brenda is very cordial and easy to communicate via email. In 2013 she found space for me and 11 others to store our luggage while we were off to Hluhluwe for a couple of days. This is an older hotel with plenty of ambiance. The standard English breakfast...

On a recent trip to durban, not having booked accommodation, we went into the parade hotel on the beach front. It is two star, but heading towards three with upgrades of the rooms. Beds were comfy -we went from a non-refurbished room to a refurbished room the second night. Bathroom in upgraded room has modern shower, toilet and wash basin,... More

They assist them on every little detail while staying at the hotel. Brenda even called to say that they have arrived safely! The hotel is very neat, affordable and well... More

I was pleasantly surprized by the upgraded, modern, well equiped room where I stayed during the 2013 Indaba. Very good value for money, the hotel is within easy walking distance to the ICC shuttles. Great and friendly staff.

It is an old hotel, but well kept. The view and the location are the best!!!!!Just few steps from the beach. The hotel just needs refurbishment. Other floors/rooms are not renovated yet hence my advice is ask for front, fourth (4th) floor room, which have been renovated recently, otherwise you will get old stinky carpets that need to be replaced...

I have to say that for the price,Parade Hotel isn't bad.The staff is friendly and helpful,the rooms are basic but clean,the bed is comfy,the showers work and the view over the seafront is amazing. It even offers free wifi and cable tv! BUT the once grand and glamorous hotel shows up its age,and the whole building needs a facelift. Rooms... More

Checked in on 10/02/2013 on our arrival we found that the lock on our room was damaged. We asked for another room as we felt not safe, but was told that all rooms was full. The lock was fixed the following morning. The carpet smell dust and definately needs to be replaced. The room was so hot with no fan.... More

Parade hotel is a small old style hotel, situated just 10 minutes from the International convention center (ICC). Good for conference participants, but also for surfers, because the beach is just in front. The staff is very professional and helpful, rooms are cleaned every day. Everything for an excellent price! The 2 stars hotel can easily become 3 stars, some... More
