Went on a much needed solo trip after 2 weeks going around SA with friends. This boutique hotel gave me what I needed. My room was very well appointed, clean, big bathroom. The mini bar selection are well thought off, they even have their own wine. So much details are into this boutique hotel that is quite impressing. The staff... More

This boutique hotel is in the morningside area, which is closer to downtown and the beach. You could be alarmed by the side drive to the are, don't despair, it really is secure and quiet lovely. It has a homey feely restaurant, beautiful to seat outside in summer. It is however amongst the residential area so there might be a... More

I stayed here for business, don't really have complains. The area looks a bit dodgy perhaps, (we went for dinner one evening and saw "the ladies of the night" around the corner from the hotel), but luckily that was only 1 night. The hotel have free Wifi, and includes breakfast. Rooms were nice and clean, quite spacious too. Friendly staff.

We stayed at The Conciege for 2 nights and really loved our time there. The aesthetic on the premises is stunning, tasteful, modern and quircky. Our room was great and we loved the touches in decor and atmosphere. The only negative was the feeling of openness from the road and lack of privacy. The staff were fabulous though, so polite...

This is our second time visiting The Concierge after a magnificent stay last year. I'm not sure how long the establishment has been running for, but some things seemed a bit "tired" this time around and needing an update eg. Towels, bath mat and duvet cover which had small tears in them. The Freedom Café has been taken over by... More

Poor area so do not exit the Hotel after dark. It is a BnB not a Hotel. No Restaurant. I looked a car to go to the Airport. It didn't come! Almost missed my flights to Joburg/Frankfurt. I will never go back here and don't understand how it got it's TripAdvisor ratings above 2 Stars.

Great rooms, wonderful staff, good food at freedom cafe. The price was 40% cheaper than the BnBs and hotels that I had stayed in previously, but the place was nicer than any other places I have stayed at in both durban and umhlanga. It's got a great funky but classy feel about it and the staff are warm and helpful.... More

What a find! Miko and his staff do a great job making you feel at home at the Concierge. They start you off with a classy breakfast. Not a buffet but a fine cooked meal with latte. The Concierge is in a great, safe location to Florida road and a large mall.

We loved our stay at Concierge - fabulous design, super awesome staff and amazing food! A few little things need some fixing in the rooms as well as new towels - otherwise all amazing! The location is super central, close to Florida Road filled with restaurants.

The best part about this hotel is that it's attached to the lovely Freedom cafe, where you can enjoy delicious complimentary breakfasts, or can pop over to for lunch/ coffee etc. The rooms are quirky and comfortable. Sliiiightly dark but not too much of an issue. Comfy bed. Central location. Highly recommend!
