The Hilton Durban is a comfortable place to stay, but i wouldnt say it is a 5 star hotel.
The rooms were on the small side and slightly outdated, the beds slightly uncomfortable.
The shower was nice with a good pressure shower head, only down side with the bathroom was the lighting was very faint.
Although it is not very close to the beach, it doesnt take much to walk there, and from our room we did have a view which was amazing.
We ordered room service for dinner, as we were very tired. the food was amazing very high standard, and arrived in good time.
It was abit daunting that in the hotel room they had a badly drawn map that showed you the safest places to walk around Durban and empisised that your room could get broken into......(we did go for a walk and didnt take the maps advise, we got back just fine)
The service from staff was excellent, very friendly and helpfull.
If i was to return to Durban i most likley wouldnt stay at the Hilton again, but try something different and closer to the beach.More
