We arrived in the evening to book in at the hotel. They had no record of our booking and we had paid a 50% deposit. The hotel is unorganised so it took a while to actually Find our booking. When it was found we were upgraded to another rooms as they didnt have any left of what we booked. They... More

Nice hotel in the center of Durban. Very friendly staff. Clean, cheap and a nice view from the balcony to the sea. The breakfast is very good, nothing to complain. A security guard at the hotel keeps everything safe. The bar downstairs is also to be recommended, the bartender will tell you anything about Durban.

This hotel does need some TLC, but is very good for the price. The staff makes you feel at home and the view was epic. After some renovations along the corridors and elevator this hotel will be in tip top shape. One of the best hotels I've been to...

Granted it is one of the oldest hotels on the beach front & it could to with some 'TLC' but I loved it! It is unpretentious, has a great view, is across the road from the beach & municipal pool (One of the reasons I chose it), has a very handy bar-fridge in the room & the breakfast is great!... More

One of the few remaining art deco buildings on the long seafront. Nice rooms with good views, though some of the renovations have been a little thoughtless (very poor lighting in the bathroom, almost impossible positioning of the safe (in my room at least), No BBC or other Western channels on the TV. Unreliable Wifi. Front desk staff could be... More
