The staff are very friendly, but however, we had to be moved as the room requested did not have double bed and was smoking. However, they did their best to accommodate us. The only problem was late on both nights, the occupants of room 817 was extremely noisy until all hours of the morning.
Room was very clean, neat and comfortable.
The hotel is situated right opposite the taxi rank which was extremely noisy with the hooting of vehicles during the early hours of the morning, thus not allowing for much rest.
Teh staff was wonderful and incredibly helpful at things liek taxis local info and internet help
The room was excellent. Perfect for business travel and self catering facilities were very useful.
The breakfast was poor and not value for money. The yogurt was fizzy and options were limited.
This hotel is very nicely situated to visit beaches and is also in a nice viby area close to restaurants and bars.
Proximity to beach, semi self catering facilities in room
Squabbling about payment on our arrival, breakfast expensive but offering not impressive, sleeper couch really uncomfortable
IT was superbly situated. enjoyed all the restaurants etc. al over. thank you.
Large room, good bathroom
very noisy hotel, water pipes and lift noise transmits through hotel
Great location for Umhlanga village. Very practical and convenient hotel with comfortable rooms. Good self catering kit.
The location was ideal. 10 minute drive from central Durban. Also the hotel is a 5 minute walk from the beach. Pleant of restaurants in the vicinity. No need to drive for lunch and dinners.
Our 4 night break in was very disappointing as the hotel did not have sufficient hot water for two people sharing a room. This issue was raised on the first day however the problem just escalated until we left on the fourth day. the staff were not trained or experinced enough to deal with the queries. Our leisure break turned into quite a stressful 4 days.
