I couldn't give this hotel a very good review, but its a good hotel overall and definitely not awful. The area is recovering from ruins so the first concern for a traveller would be the outside look and feel of the hotel and the surrounding area, but there are good new-look upmarket sky scrapper apartments surrounding the hotel that could give you some calm; once you walk into the hotel you are met by professional staff with a smile, hip interior, the hotel really would appeal to a younger audience and artist people. I found the rooms to be on the small side for my liking, the open shower style doesn't work for me but isn't a bad idea if space is being maximised. i chose a room with a balcony and found the balcony to be exceptional for my smoking habits. The breakfast was adequate, I didn't find it to be overwhelmingly great. The check out young man was a bit on the rude side which was a contradiction to the young woman who welcomed us into the hotel, so this did dampen our upbeat mood. The hotel is under construction and refinement, so there will be some work around that can irritate a business traveller who just wants to get on with his busy schedule. The style, the colour scheme and the entire area which feels as if you are at the end of Durban can either appeal to you or be totally unacceptable, so go with an open mind, its definitely not on the beachfront, so don't expect that, its on the docks as the name says but you are not far from the beach either. Overall, an interesting hotel!
