I booked at above hotel about a month ago, as we had a wedding to attend in Ballito. They insisted that we pay in full prior to check in... well now I know why! I phoned on Friday just to confirm my booking and that all was in order. On arrival on a hot Durban summer's day we had to discover that the air-conditions where not working! the room was so small and no ventilation at all, they then attempt to move us to another room with the promise that they just switch that side the aircon on and that it will get cooler soon! There a small little fan in the room and I asked if there are aircon why are there fans in each room?? Only to later discover that the aircon are not working at all!! the carpets in the passage and room was so disgustingly dirty and full of marks all over that I would NOT walk with my bare feet on those carpet! if all the reviews about this place are so negative then I don't understand why something does not get done about this disgusting dirty hotel???
