I stayed at the Edward during the eighties when the hotel was one of the grandest in Durban. Decided to go back for nostalgic reasons. The building is well kept but has lost its splendor and charm. The staff was friendly and tried their best. The "curry buffet" at R250.00 was very disappointing and certainly not worth the money. Better cheaper restaurants at nearby hotels. I was also not "allowed" to order room service on a tab to be settled because I did not bank credit. I think there are better hotels in Durban. Wont stay there again.
