We stayed at the Edward for one night as a stop over for our 10 days cruise from Durban harbour. The room was clean and comfortable but the service was shocking...we had to ask three times for coffee at breakfast just to be ignored and then told they are busy! The location of the hotel is very noisy to a point where it is almost impossible to sleep at night with the noise from outside. We were called back after breakfast to "pay our outstanding account". To our surprise our room fee of R1783 did not even include breakfast!!! Shocking for what it is...rather book at the Elangeni Hotel just down the road with wonderful restaurants.
