“Great property in best neighborhood for Durban visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2011

Just finished my third Comrades Marathon and with it, my third stay at the fabulous Quarters Hotel. Terrific, friendly property. Shannon and the rest of the staff are just so incredibly helpful with all aspects of your visit. For example, they staffed up at 4am to ensure the Comrades Marathon runners staying with them had a proper breakfast before heading out.
The location, on Florida Road, is far superior to a downtown or beach location. Take a five minute taxi ride to those areas during the day for a visit, but stay at the Quarters. Many restaurants and bars within a 5 min walk of hotel, all very safe. (private security seems to be on every street corner) In three years down there, have never felt unsafe on Florida Road, while downtown and Hilton area can be a bit dodgy at night. (Although I must say Durban has improved the beach experience quite a bit over the past couple of years)

We were unsure about coming to Durban but after finding Quarters and roaming the neighborhood we found it fantastically metropolitan-chic! The hotel was perfectly clean, smart and elegant. Beautifully designed, sophisticated, and trendy. AMAZING breakfast! This hotel is perfect for a night out at a gorgeous boutique hotel and a short walk to wonderful restaurants and bars!

I would tell EVERYONE to stay at this hotel, It is beautiful.
The room was massive with a gorgeous bathroom and a lovely balcony overlooking a pretty church.
The staff were lovely always wanting to help and offer great advice.
The food was very special, my boyfriend fell in love with the eggs annaise and still misses it!!!
We stayed in March 2010 and it was very hot, I was worried at how safe I would be there, Florida Road felt safe but I would not of walked elsewhere.

I normally stay in the hilton but it was fully booked, I stayed at Quarters and it was so much better from the Hilton.

If you can afford this place, stay here!

Food is very good and the rooms where amazing - plus its on Florida road!

When we arrived at the hotel, there was no electricity. But the staff was so nice that it did not really matter and they gave us a pricereduction that made more than up for it.

The rooms were very tastefully decorated in a colonial style and we liked the hotel itself a lot as it felt directly familiar due to it's size.

We only eat there once, but the food was great. Breakfast was good and the Eggs Benedict were spectacular.

We just arrived in South Africa from the US on New Year's Eve. This was a very nice, quiet, comfortable place. Our room was quiet - even on New Year's Eve. The restaurant was very nice. The people were pleasent and helpful. There is very nice African arts and craft shop across the street and we regret not buying stuff there.

One note - there seems to be a new, much bigger Quarters Hotel about a block away - not to be confused with this one....

Since opening it’s doors in 1997, Quarters Hotel Florida Road has become the hotel of choice for many guests who regularly return to stay at Quarters.In 2008 an ideal property became available on Avondale Road, a short (walking) distance from the original Quarters and the decision was taken to convert the property into “Quarters Hotel Avondale Road”.
