I love the quaintness of this hotel. Which is why I've come back. But each time I've stayed here I've been dissapointed by the size of the rooms which are very small by South African standards. The noise from Florida road is not one that a slight sleeper can endure and the continental breakfast leaves much to be desired. This morning, not only was the spread below average, but the chairs and table clothes were dirty. Add to that the cramped parking space, the inconsistent service and I'm left wondering each time: why did I come back here.? The answer is that it's position is unbeatable, if you want to be close to the Durban CBD and if you like smaller hotels. But that's the only reason I had come back.
The cost of the wireless Internet might ensure that I stay away. I can't believe that there are still establishments that charge so much for the Internet!

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights at the end of March. As others have mentioned, it is on the very busy Florida Road and there is traffic noise all the time. We were at the hotel over a weekend and the noise did not stop us from having a reasonable nights rest.
We initially had a room upstairs but the air con did not work and the safe was unscrewed from the wall and as the hotel takes no responsibility for your belongings we asked to be moved. There was no hair drier in the room either.
I unfortunately unpacked all our stuff and had to cart it to our replacement room down stair at the front of the building. This room was much more spacious and the air con was blissfully cold in the sweltering heat. The safe was attached and there was a hair drier.
The bathroom was adequate and we had plenty towels. Note that there are no fridges in the rooms. The bed linen and pillows were nice but the bed was a bit creaky as it had a solid board base.
The staff at the hotel was helpful and friendly. Charl in the bar served many cold beers! We were advised by one of the staff that it would be saver to drink and drive than walk to a restaurant, at might, in Avondale Road (which is just around the corner)!
We used the WiFi briefly. It worked well but should be free.
There are many restaurants on Florida Road and though we were accosted by toddlers sent to beg we felt as comfortable as you can in Durban (which does not say much). We did not eat in the restaurant but had breakfast every morning. The continental buffet was not great. Considering the lovely fruit available they could have done so much better. The cheese looked pretty manky. The meat was not too bad and I had a nice blue berry muffin one morning. The cooked breakfasts were better but I try and avoid these on holiday otherwise you just eat far too much. This did not stop hubby having Eggs Benedict a few times.
All in all this hotel was OK, but rather expensive for what you get.

Durban is a difficult town to visit. Doesn't lend itself to walking & feels threatening. Quarters in in the Florida road 'trendy' quarter with a number of bars and restaurants around and enough security guards in the street to feel safe, however, we did not find any of the bars or restaurants particularly good. This interesting hotel is a mixture of period buildings, so rooms are high ceilinged and spacious. The breakfasts were fabulous and the staff friendly & attentive.

Given the surroundings it would have been nice to have had an area to sit outside & chill out, but there was no room for this.

If you need to stay in Durban, I would seriously recommend looking at Uhmlanga Rocks - a nice resort about 20 minutes by taxi from here which seems much safer & has great beaches & restuarants & bars. & talking about taxis, always get the hotel to book one - it will be about 50% less than hailing one in the street where 'oh dear the meter is not working'.

I stayed in this hotel for a week and, having overcome some initial reservations about its immediate surroundings, grew to to like it. Friendly young staff, all trying hard to please, making up with willingness what they sometimes lacked in experience. Rooms were spacious and comfortable if a suffering a bit from traffic noise. Good and inexpensive wifi. Restaurant was unexpectedly good and breakfast a real treat. The location, at the foot of Florida Road also proved itself in that there is a good selection of restaurants within easy and, importantly in South Africa, safe walking distance.

Room Tip: Avoid traffic noise to the the extent possible.

This hotel is not up to par with other 4 star hotels that we have stayed in. It is overpriced for what they offer. A hotel at this price should have king size beds and should include wifi but they definitely try to nickel and dime you for everything. In our first room the air conditioner did not work and had a horrible smell. It took two staff members to check the room before they moved us to another room. Thankfully the room smelled better and was clean. We did not sleep well though because of all the bar traffic that began around 9pm and lasted for hours. The noise included honking, cars zooming by, people screaming and music from the bars. The car noise began again at 6am with buses and and other commuter traffic. We checked out early and now we are staying in a different 4 star hotel for the fraction of the price, with a pool, king size bed and free Internet!

Room Tip: You can hear people walking on the old wooden floors, ask for a room upstairs and away from the stairs.
