I moved to this hotel as a change of accommodations while in Druban for a conference, however, leaving Durban for a 25 min car drive seemed problematic and I was hesitant to go out of town since my conference was downtown. Well, was I wrong! After dusty and noisy Durban streets - this place was just like heaven. Wonderfully located... More

Great room, great restaurant, great (and cheap!) massage & spa. What would have given you 5 stars is if I had someone to carry me and my wives' suitcases up the many, many, stairs, as one would expect in a 5 star facility.

This hotel is absolutely beautiful! :) It has a great view which is obvious from its name and there is attention to detail to enhance the guest experience. There are a lot of stairs at the hotel to maximise the views at each room so if a disabled or elderly person is staying there you may want to find out... More

I booked this hotel at the last minute for convenience as it was near to an appointment the following morning and I didn't want to drive excessively that day. My expectations were exceeded firstly because it wasn't expensive and secondly because of the impeccable service and fantastic room amenities. There was a seating area, dining table and kitchen in addition... More

The Service was very professional, all the staff very caring, always smiling, very helpful and made us very comfortable. Our room was first class, we want for nothing more. At least we were not couped up, could just walk out from our room into the amenities and direct sunlight. The location was far from the madding crowds and traffic. It... More
