Lush gardens, palm trees and a pool with a gazebo lend a relaxed, summer feel to this hotel, as well as being only 2 blocks away from the main beach and 2 minutes from Durban’s CBD. It also has a fitness room and small meeting room for guest use. Close to many different restaurants, within walking distance of the International Conference and Exhibition Centre, a 30 minute drive to Durban’s international airport and close to the N3 motorway ensures a very convenient location.
