Stayed there for 2 nights but not again. Rooms are okay, but the noise of people having a party on both nights at the hotel was really poorly controlled. The service was also slow in the morning. Nothing special.

Do not plan a special occasion at this venue - They don't seem to care. Their lack of management and lack of professionalism is disgusting. Very disappointed. The food was terrible, the lettuce salad and hard bread rolls were not much to write home about, the mains were dry and tasteless, the meats were not meat, more like shoe leather... More

Great place to stay. Ideal if travelling on business especially for single person stay over. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are neat and modern. The food isn't the best. But not far from all amenities and restaurants in umhlanga. Good service.

Sent our wedding night at Boulevard 44. We had made arrangements to check in a little bit early so the guys could get ready there... they couldn't find the payment which was confirmed a week before. Made arrangements for housekeeping to tidy up the room before we arrived after the wedding... wasn't tidied. Ordered a romantic turn down which came... More

Lovely hotel, beautiful deco through and through clean rooms. Shocking service from their administration staff! Booking made in October for December paid 50% deposit. Upon check in we are told that they cannot see our booking on their “system” and that means that it was cancelled. Lady X blames Lady Y who is on leave for this *sigh* We are... More

This hotel is not being managed or maintained well at all. Upon arrival, we had to walk over pool hoses, etc. only to find a concierge on her blackberry unaware of our entrance. The lobby bathroom was dirty and unpleasant. The hotel room while nicely decorated was in disrepair. The wall between the shower and toilet had a great deal... More

My husband works abroad and we were looking for a romantic place to go when he arrived back after a long contract. Upon arrival there was no one to show us where to go, no concierge? We found reception, where we got our key and we asked to be shown to our room and to the spa, the directions where... More

We stayed here after flying in to Durban, before setting off on a long drive next day. It was the perfect place to recover from an overnight flight - comfortable rooms, nice pool (although a little small) and good food. The only boutique aspect of the hotel is really some slightly garish decoration but the staff were helpful and friendly,... More

I went to this establishment with friends for a nearby wedding and I totally regret ever stepping foot in there. From the minute we arrived everything was a flop. No matter how we tried to organIse the group booking, there was no organisation and no communication between staff. They didn't know which rooms we were in and subsequently made us... More

I stayed at this hotel with a large group of friends for a wedding. The hotel is new, beautiful, modern, not a blade of grass out of place. The staff were very acommodating, keeping the bar open late for us, but they were still very slow while being very friendly and polite about it! Although it is beautiful and would... More
