CheapTickets Verified Review
"We were in Durban for a junior tennis competition. So there were a few of us staying at the hotel.
I had read the reviews about staff friendliness; but I suspected that they might be slightly untrue, given that the reviews were always so good.
Oh my god - the staff are amazing. I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world - and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff is just as fantastic.
Yes - sure - there are more presentable parts of the beach further north up the coast - that is probably true - however, this area is just fine. Much more exciting. Much more in touch with the locals. And the hotel could not get closer to the beach. In fact - I think it is the closest hotel to the beach, in the whole of Durban.
And all the rooms have sea views. And because the hotel literally looks onto the promenade - if you love watching people, you will not get bored at looking out of your window for hours on end watching the activity below.
On top of it all - great restaurant and room service in house. Plus some more places to eat just minutes away. And having a full kitchen in the room is also a massive bonus.
We can't wait to go back in a few months time."
