Positive Reviews

Convenient location

Visitors consistently rate this hotel's location highly in reviews. They like being able to walk across the street to arrive at the Gateway Shopping Centre and say the large shopping centre, filled with various restaurants and venues, is convenient. The beach and downtown Durban are also a big draw for visitors.

Spacious and comfortable rooms

Visitors have good things to say about the rooms at this hotel. Guests appreciate the fact that the spacious and well-appointed accommodations makes staying in a breeze. Guests also mention how easy it is to store luggage and fit large groups into the rooms at this hotel. The accommodations are often described as comfortable and neat.

Wonderful breakfast experience

Reviewers rave about the breakfast buffet at this hotel. They like everything from the quality of the food to the service provided by the staff. The range of items available outshines that of a typical hotel buffet and makes it easier for guests to stay in for more than a few days.

Negative Reviews

Outside rooms can be noisy

Guests say that the rooms facing the shopping centre can be quite noisy. They have trouble getting a full nights' rest when the area is in full swing. The inner rooms are much quieter and those who have trouble sleeping recommend that potential visitors request one of these to prevent restless nights.
