This place is in drastic need of repairs and is definitely not worth staying in. This is my first review and since I was having trouble finding reviews about this place I decided that I should warn others. I have included photos below to ensure you that I am not exaggerating.
Overall everything is old and in need of some sort of repair or replacement in this place.
-The beds are very dirty and the sheets are paper thin. Our bed frame consisted of part bed frame and the other part was made up of stone bricks holding up the mattress.
-The TV had partial color and manual buttons
-The toilet seat cover was broken and only partly attached
-The shower head was broken and not adjustable and shot water straight backwards in a steady stream, flooding the floor after a 2 minute shower. The ripped & tied shower curtain was another joy
-Most of the windows were falling down and unable to close or lock, and with a low roof under the window you would not feel secure leaving anything of value in the room.
-The pool was not usable as it was totally filthy
-The attached bar can be quite noisy if trying to get to sleep before 11pm
-I also did not enjoy having my table set with a used spoon.
On the plus side:
-There are some great photos on the wall
-Coffee shop was nice and served good snacks
It seems as though the owners are more interested in running the bar as a business and have really let the hotel slide.
I would not even consider staying here. There should be many other hotels/motels around and even some B&Bs. If you are still out of luck consider staying out of Eshowe as there are many other towns within a 30minute drive.
