We loved the Concierge! Fantastic small, friendly boutique hotel with large and luxurious rooms and great cafe. Primrose and Sanele were the most lovely and welcoming staff - we felt like friends after only a few days and were genuinely sad to leave them. Rooms are beautifully designed and fitted out - large and luxurious with lovely comfy beds and lots of nice touches. Breakfast is included - your choice from the great menu at the onsite Freedom Cafe. Beats a hotel buffet any day! And proper coffee :-) The cafe is fantastic - a beautifully designed glass and steel cube opening onto a lovely shady courtyard where we sat for hours under the trees and cute bunting. And the food is great. We went to a few other cafes on nearby (walkable) Florida Road, but kept coming back to Freedom as our favourite place to eat. It's just breakfast and lunch, but is also licensed. If they had done dinner there we might never have left! All up this is a luxurious but quirky and individual place to stay. If we came back to Durban we would not think twice about staying anywhere else.
Small feedback for the owners - the staff seemed to have to deal with a lot of technical problems (they were fantastic about it and so accommodating in responding quickly - but maybe it means maintenance could be better). Phone and TV didn't work in the first room (so we were happily and quickly moved to another). Safe had to be fixed in the second room. And in both rooms the bathroom fans are on a sensor so they go on every time you go in the bathroom and take ages to go off, this noise is annoying - especially at night. (Please note these are minor things and didn't detract from our very happy stay - just constructive feedback!)
