Bedroom was clean, breakfast was delicious. But the only problem is the outdated TV with no remote control and there were only 6 channels working and the rest were not even visible. They should update all their TV sets because some rooms have new TV's!

Just spent 3 nights at the Parade Hotel during Ironman. It's a grand old lady of a hotel. When we checked in, we were first given a family room which was really terrible! Dirty armchair, very poor bathroom, very old, no view. We asked for another room and were taken to a renovated room on the 3rd floor. What a... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in early May 2015 over the course of a business conference, and came and went at varying hours of the day and night. The one old lady receptionist was a crabby, miserable old bat, who seemed more interested in her TV, than dealing with me as a fee paying customer. She also couldn't get... More

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...

"The reception is simple and easy. A somewhat retro modern ambiance is created with the use of classic and classic lookalike furniture. The classic elevator certainly adds a touch of class. Upon entering the room I was surprised at the simplicity of the room. I did however find that the the television was mounted very low and close in relation... More

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
