Nice hotel in the center of Durban. Very friendly staff. Clean, cheap and a nice view from the balcony to the sea. The breakfast is very good, nothing to complain. A security guard at the hotel keeps everything safe. The bar downstairs is also to be recommended, the bartender will tell you anything about Durban.

If its simply a clean and comforable room at a budget price youre looking for, this hotel works. Its centrally located and our booking included breakfast. Hotel has no pool or gym and you pay for the wifi. Breakfast was bacon and eggs, but sometimes sausage and eggs etc, no bacon. We stayed for nine days and will stay there...

This hotel does need some TLC, but is very good for the price. The staff makes you feel at home and the view was epic. After some renovations along the corridors and elevator this hotel will be in tip top shape. One of the best hotels I've been to...

Granted it is one of the oldest hotels on the beach front & it could to with some 'TLC' but I loved it! It is unpretentious, has a great view, is across the road from the beach & municipal pool (One of the reasons I chose it), has a very handy bar-fridge in the room & the breakfast is great!...

One of the few remaining art deco buildings on the long seafront. Nice rooms with good views, though some of the renovations have been a little thoughtless (very poor lighting in the bathroom, almost impossible positioning of the safe (in my room at least), No BBC or other Western channels on the TV. Unreliable Wifi. Front desk staff could be...

when we checked in we were given the most rude and unfriendly attitude, and had to confront this person in the most unpleasant way in order to figure out our checkin details. when we asked for a slightly later checkout it was if we had asked the impossible. the manager just didn't care. to obtain one hour later checkout we...

Had my doubts at first when I did the booking but my family thoroughly enjoyed the place.We had a family room which was quite convenient to the beach . Had no problems with noise , only the scent in the rooms and the downstairs pub , maybe they should consider a stronger air freshener. Maybe also look into getting an...
