This is the 4th year we've used this hotel as residence during the annual tourism Indaba. It is centrally located, offers good value for money and great service. The rooms are comfortable and immaculately kept. I am excited to learn that Tsogo Sun Hotels will offer complimentary wifi in their rooms from 1 June-fantastic!
The hotel offers a great breakfast selection, but I did find the dining room a bit stuffy this year. I suppose it is due to the renovations, and I hope that it will be fixed soon. I did not enjoy smelling like bacon and eggs, especially when I am seeing clients!
The only drawback is the Mustard Grill Restaurant situated on the gorund floor. The service is shocking and the food is nothing to write home about. The hotel uses this restaurant for their in-room dining. Make sure that the operator repeats your room number, otherwise you will not get your order!
I believe that this restaurant is damaging the hotel's reputation, but it is making a pot of money as it is the only restaurant on the premise, so it is unlikely that anything will change. Take my advice and rather make the effort to eat at one of the many fine restaurants in Durban!
I will definitely return; see you next year!
