The hotel is in Florida road which is Durbans main night life street. This is good in that you can walk to bars and restaurants within 5 minutes . However some rooms may suffer from noise, especially at weekends. We stayed twice- first in a room facing the pool so didnt get any noise, the second time, one with a shared balcony with a door opening to face the main road which would have been noisy with the door open. The hotel is an old wooden house and is stylishly furnished in olde world style. It had a small pool in a courtyard. Both rooms were very clean and a good size with a nice comfy bed but in the 1st one the bathroom was very small. Bizarrely the door opened inwards and it was very difficult to open the door when you were in the bathroom- an outward opening door would have solved this. The staff at the hotel were very friendly, helpful and efficient- they offered advice and arranged taxis for us and let us check out a couple of hours later than standard for an evening flight . Breakfast was served in the restaurant by the pool- full English was freshly cooked and tasty. The hotel is a taxi ride from the sea front and town centre but is ideally placed to enjoy the many bars and restaurants in Florida street. In summary a good midrange choice in Durban.
