Came to Durban to run the Comrades marathon. The Suncoast worked like a treat. Great location, very well appointed rooms, great restaurant and very nice staff. I'll come back the next time I run this madness marathon.

The location is amazing. Direct access to the promenade and only a minute walk to the beach. You can also walk directly into the casino and restaurant area for a bit of entertainment and food. Alternatively, you can walk on the promenade at any time of day (police patrolling the promenade all night long) and go find somewhere to eat or have a few drinks.

The rooms are quite small, but very well designed, so it really does not feel like it. It was more than comfortable for the two of us.

The staff were super friendly, treated us like family, and the whole hotel is spotless. And to boot, there is a spa on the 9th floor with amazing sea views!

Overall, I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: We stayed in the deluxe room, which is basically a normal room with a sea view. The extra R100 odd p...

What a wonderful place to stay while in Durban. You are close to everything yet while in the hotel surrounds you are far from the madding crowds

Room Tip: Take time out to spend a day at the pool area and forget about everyhting else

ideally situated, and excellant service. Breakfast is tops with friendly and efficient staff. Has a real good feel with great facilites on the property. The spa experiance was one of the best I had. on the downside the room is really small and open plan shower/toilet arrangement is not the best situation. This room does not encourage u to stay in. The view is hampered cos the window is really small, so what a waste cos the view is terrific. They should have had large windows bringing the outdoors in.

The hotel is in a great location and the staff are top notch. I was well impressed by how friendly the staff were and nothing was too much trouble. The biggest problem is that the rooms are incredibly tiny!!! We initially had a room on the first floor which was a nightmare as the traffic into the casino centre goes past these rooms. We asked to be moved to the 2nd floor which we found much better

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms on the frist floor as the traffic going in & out of the casino walks directly...

This hotel is wonderful, the design is interesting! The view!! Please ask for sea view room! The shower arrangement is a bit tricky though, there are no walls between the shower, toilet and the bedroom, just doors! Overall, the spot is within walking distance to the casino, so there is an opportunity to blow some money away as well!

There is this lounge area, for cocktails and whatnot, right on the beach that is reserved for guests! I mean what else can you ask for, the staff is efficient and professional. The food is good!

They have this business lounge area (for free!!) which I use all the time for meetings, you feel as if you have access to a business room without paying for it, pretty cool!! Also, you have someone at your door to provide refreshment, it works for me when I am on business in Durban!

We were on honeymoon in Durban for a week (7 days); I was so sad to leave just because of this Hotel & its Fantastic staff members! The service is great, the rooms are great and the staff were awesome! A Very big thank you for each and every person at the Hotel & Towers for making this an experience to remember and tell friends about. We will most definitely be visiting again soon... A special thanks to Hazel for her friendly assistance and efficient service!
