    Needs some work

    The check in takes time. The one lift needs repairing as with only 3 lifts and a limit of 4 people in a lift you end up waiting. So again, no wifi. It doesnt work even though its advertised, thats not on to falsely advertise. Very sad breakfast wasnt in the main room but the rather dull indoor pool room. The breakfast and view is the one tip reason to stay at the hotel.

    Really enjoyed my stay even though I was unable to get underground parking, forcing me to park in the street. Apart from one small cockroach, it was a restful stay.

    Incredible

    Everything was more than expected! The family room were clean and net. We did enjoy that outdoor swimming pool and sauna, as well as the lovely breakfast every morning. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

    Three day stop over in Durban

    Grew up in Durban and regularly visited the hotel in the evenings and finally got to tick my bucket list by staying there for three nights. The Facilities, service, view and buffet breakfast exceeded my expectations. Great value for money and will definitely book there again next time we visit Durban.
