I had a fantastic stay at the Concierge. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully designed. The staff are friendly and super helpful. The best part for me however was the great grub at the Freedom Cafe.....great job Neil and team.

Can't help but love visiting spaces like this, where there are incredibly beautiful things to see wherever you look, from the collection of protea inspired ceiling lamps, to the hexagonal printed gown, and tongue in cheek, peekaboo shower. Each and every one of the staff members were friendly, pleasant and eager to help. While the the selection of breakfasts is... More

The Concierge has the character and charm you won't find in a regular hotel. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable and the bathrooms have quirky glass shower cubicles, but.... 1. I had a room overlooking the carpark, while for the same price I could have had a room with a verandah and palm trees facing the road. 2. My... More

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
