“A wonderful Hotel find in Durban”
Reviewed March 19, 2007

We recentlty stayed at the Hotel Benjamin in Florida Road, Durban, for 3 nights.
What a fantastic hotel! Nothing was ever too much effort for the wonderful receptionists. The hotel itself is in a lovely location, very secure and within 5 minutes walk of numerous good restaurants. The hotel also has a pool and guests can help themselves to a courtesy bar and sit next to the pool sipping sundowners, or as in our case on the spacious balcony in our bedroom.
Having stayed at Quarters Hotel in the same road previously, I can honestly say that I had a far better experience and more superb accommodation(lovely airconditioned bedroom) at the Benjamin, than I had at Quarters.

Highly recommended.
