eMakhosini Boutique Hotel
Ranked #32 of 44 Hotels in Durban
Reviewed 22 June 2017 via mobile

The rooms looked good but they were dirty.
No WI-FI reception in our room.
Loud music and people making noise. I think they were hosting a party and it made our stay unpleasant. We had to wait for a while before we could find parking space for our vehicle.

In general this hotel is really confortable with massive rooms. The attention to detail is not always visible though.

My lock in my room kept on jamming and I couldn't open it without assistance. Sure this was not the first time it happened.

I had no hot water in the shower, which was extremely uncomfortable.

The staff in general were super friendly and helpful except for the guy at reception who literally took over 10 minutes to print my invoice.

Not bad for a one night stay on a business trip, but I would not recommend it if you are staying for longer.

The place is falling apart. The maintenance is shocking. It's not 4 star at all! In its early days it may have been good but currently it's not at all. Expensive for a run down establishment.
Mouldy smelly rooms. Old worn pillow covers. Broken doors and locks. Worn furniture. Broken lamps and shades. Bad paint and moisture on walls.Broken toilet seats. Old stained toilet seats. Missing shower doors. Unkept gardens and pool. Everything looks tired and worn out. Even the ceiling at reception is in need of repairs.
A candidate for hotel nightmares.
