My daughter and I stayed here last weekend. The room is huge, the bathrooms modern and the kitchenette well equipped. We have found a gem situated a block from the sea. My only complaint is that there was only one towel. I requested another, but this never happened.

It is a great place but i believe there is a lot of things that need to be fixed e.g utensils are less. If there is a standard bedroom there must be two of each mugs,glasses etc. The water from the shower must be hot. guidelines to operate the television and telephone must visible in the room. the passage didnt...

We were very disappointed with our stay at the Parkview "hotel". First of all, there are residents that own rooms there, and a company buys rooms and advertises as a hotel, which it certainly is not! The smell in hallway is awful - stale smoke! Our first room had a security gate and a broken lock! Inside the floor was... More

Staff friendly, room clean, night club noise all night, feel unsafe to walk from hotel at night, shower water pressure very low. dinning room good. pool nice and quite. Thatchers pub nice to meet locals. 80% retired people live in the hotel, but this did not bother us as we are also retired.

Being such a popular destination I had trouble finding accommodation in Durban. Having unfortunately booked a room at the Parkview through "Rooms for Africa" I arrived there well after check-in time and no record of my booking had been received by the hotel. The lady on reception was very friendly and advised me that this happens all the time with... More

This old-school (really beautiful wood work) on the inside looks good on the website. The price seems affordable at first glance. Just a warning that this is not a Hotel as such. It is a building whereby some of the rooms have permanent residents. It is more like a boarding facility. The staff was really friendly but the room was... More

We stayed for two night at parkview hotel, the rooms and service were fine. We arrive at the hotel at 9am, we stayed at the reception till 14:00 to be checked in. The receptionist refused to keep our luggage so we spent the whole day strolling with heavy luggage until check in time

The place is clean, very quite inside the rooms. The staff working there are very nice and warm, very helpful. Only the parking is so much of an inconvenience, though I don't see any other way besides using the safe option provided. I also think it shouldn't be called a "Hotel"...But all in all, it is fairly affordable & more... More
