Positive Reviews

Great for Business or Pleasure

Thanks to the combination of its breezy, tropical ambience and outstanding facilities, this hotel was a hit with both business and leisure travellers. The palm-lined pool area – plus its proximity to the beach – was a big hit with the former group, but the latter really liked this property's location with respect to Durban's International Conference and Exhibition Centre.

Spacious Units and Friendly Staff

This property was also praised for its selection of spacious, airy units. These were kept clean and tidy, a point that certainly did not go unnoticed by guests. Many also really liked the separate tub and walk-in shower units. Additionally, the staff here really helped to make guests' stays worth remembering; warm and friendly, they offered an efficient and professional level of service.

Pretty Patio Area, Good Breakfast

In terms of its overall looks and ambience, this hotel's central patio and pool area has proved to be its most striking feature. Providing a calming space for those in town on business and a place to lounge for leisure travellers, this area is the social heart of the hotel. When it comes to food, the morning breakfast buffet here also came highly commended.

Negative Reviews

Recent Reports of Damp

If there was one issue with this property, it appears to be damp and humid in-room conditions. While units are air conditioned against the swampy, tropical heat of Durban, there are numerous recent reports of oddly clammy in-room conditions. This led to musty, mouldy smells in rooms and this damp feel also seemed to permeate sheets, linens and blankets.
