I didn't book this in advance, just walked in off the street. We were given a very nice room which was nice and comfortable. Hotel is close to the beach which is what we wanted. Staff very friendly and helpful. All in all a good experience.

A historical old Durban Hotel which has been smartly restored, and is generally clean. Stayed in the Penthouse over 3 days. Within the main door is a corridor with 4 modest-sized bedrooms, each with a small bathroom ( shower, no bath ) and their own keys. There was a large rather empty lounge, a dining table & a small kitchen...

The Pavillion Hotel is a great place to stay when in Durban. It has excellent rooms, friendly staff, offers fantastic meals, and is walking distance to the beach. Its location makes it easy for one to have access to banking services, shopping malls, ets

This small hotel is ideally placed near the beach for quick access and just a ten minute walk to the ICC if you're in town for a conference. The hotel is kept clean and is a no-frills kind of place.

It's loud both inside the hotel and outside. Tiled floors and passages make baggage trolleys seem like they have square wheels. No carpets, loud reception area throughout the night. Rooms are situated above their party venue/conference area, smoking area and loading area. It's on a busy road. Leaking airconditioner flooded our room. Toilet didn't stop flushing.

Located just a couple of minutes from the Marine Parade esplanade, ithe hotel's location is quite convenient for those wishing to be near Durban's beaches where surfing is quite popular.
