First off, there was no air-con (A.C.). How I even survived here in the heat of the Durban summer, I don't know. It's also mosquito infested. Be sure to bring repellent and even though you might want to stay cool at night given the lack of A.C., don't open your window or you'll be attacked by mosquitoes a well as... More

Arrived at the Parade hotel and had a problem with the accommodation. Was not told about certain renovations which made the accommodation booked not suitable for the two elderly people. The manager of the establishment went out of her way to rectify the situation and we were pleasantly suprised at the outcome. She upgraded them to a sister hotel at... More

I enjoyed my stay here for a week when I was attending a conference: Price: The most affordable along beachfront Staff: Friendly Rooms: Tidy Location: 2 minutes to the beach Breakfast: The best But it can be better with a strong & consistent WiFi.

Bedroom was clean, breakfast was delicious. But the only problem is the outdated TV with no remote control and there were only 6 channels working and the rest were not even visible. They should update all their TV sets because some rooms have new TV's!

Just spent 3 nights at the Parade Hotel during Ironman. It's a grand old lady of a hotel. When we checked in, we were first given a family room which was really terrible! Dirty armchair, very poor bathroom, very old, no view. We asked for another room and were taken to a renovated room on the 3rd floor. What a... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in early May 2015 over the course of a business conference, and came and went at varying hours of the day and night. The one old lady receptionist was a crabby, miserable old bat, who seemed more interested in her TV, than dealing with me as a fee paying customer. She also couldn't get... More
