Beach view from the room, walking distance to the beach (just at the beach front) and Ushaka marine, proximity to the shops, ICC, Stadiums, the casino. The visible policing around the hotel make it a more secure place to live, play and work.

Very pleasant, smart hotel. Always good service and friendly staff members. Rooms spacious, clean and neat. Bathroom also spacious enough. The parking area also safe and clean. The lifts are a bit slow, but I understand with a full hotel, they work constantly.

However i did not like the bedding. The blanket looked like something so old. I would have preferred a duvet. There was also the noisy neighbours. But overall... More

I had a bad service at your dinning hall due to service from trainees who were not supervised by an experienced staff.The service was very slow and frustrating, frying an egg took 15 minutes and more.

The checkout was most unpleasant. There three people just standing there behind the counter while we stood in the queue- running late for flight out of Durban. Extremely slow lifts due to upgrade - when the hotel had lots of guests.

The check in was very efficient and the staff was friendly. The breakfast buffet provided a wide choice. I had the most spectacular view of the ocean. The only downside was the WIFI connection, it was not easy to connect and I ended up not using the complimentary voucher.
