We pre-booked, reservation was confirmed, then cancelled by the hotel and then re-confirmed due to cancellations. We arrived early and were told there was no availability till 2 o'clock. Girl on reception was surly and unhelpful. The toilets in the public area of the hotel were dirty and dingy, with no toilet paper. We felt the hotel was not in... More

I really enjoyed my one week stay at this location. I was shocked and somewhat in disbelief that there was a strongly negative review from 2009 because my experience was fantastic. Iwas personally driven by the owner and his daughter for a competitive price (We called a taxi and he agreed to drive us for R50 less). The room I... More

Management was A mazing! They provided a ride for my friends and me each day to go whereever we wanted. Food was deliciouso and the rooms were spacious and clean. I especially liked the 24 hour room service. For it to be in the heart of downtown Durban the prices are really competitive. I'm 2 minutes away from the beach.... More

This hotel is abhorrent. I had booked four nights here and arrived late in the evening. When I saw the room, I was shocked. The lock on the door had been changed more than twice; there was evidence of it having been forced; there was mould all over the cupboards with a strong smell of anti-mould chemical in the room;...
