This hotel has retained the old world colonial charm with dark wood and marble floors. This hotel has character. The staff are friendly and are well informed as to good tourist destinations. We were warned not to venture very far from the hotel due to safety issues. Visitors should be aware that this hotel is situated in the CBD area on the sea front where the 'black' population live. There is a strong police presence on the sea front. Must have a guide to visit any tourist attractions in the CBD for safety.
The lady at the hotel were very friendly and very accommodating. They actually went over and beyond to help me and my friend staying there. Giving us all the information we needed help us during our stay with them. They are also some residents there as well which were lovely to talk to and also helped us out a great deal too. Thank you to you all at Parkview Hotel.
From the outside a quaint old fashioned look, but when you step inside the theme is as the name implies - Ship Docklands. Great retro feel and clever use of space.
Close to Ushaka Marine World and Calypso Dive Centre and Durban's boardwalk. So area is entertaining for both adults and kids. Plenty restaurants around to choose from, so location is very good overall.
Centrally located close to big shops and entertainments, but the staff isn't guest oriented at all! They tried to charge more money for our stay even though we paid all the booking expences to expedia. Parking wasn't available , had no disc for their parking lot.

Hilton 5 Star Hotel... Everything you would expect....easy check in check out... Needs a more reasonably priced wine list in the bars and restaurant ... By South African Standards. Need to offer free parking to residents.. Or at least a one off daily charge...
THIS IS AN OLDER 150 YEAR OLD HOTEL THAT IS IN THE MIDDLE OF DOWNTOWN DURBAN. IT IS A WONDERFUL VALUE FOR THE MONEY. A LOT OF TOURISTS SEEM TO STAY IN THE NORTHERN SUBURBS OF DURBAN HOWEVER THEY ARE MISSING OUT ON THE VALUE OF THIS HOTEL BY STAYING DOWNTOWN. IT HAS A PARKING GARAGE ATTACHED BY A COVERED WALKWAY AT A COST OF AROUND 3.50 US DOLLARS A NIGHT. BREAKFAST IS SERVED IN THE HISTORIC DINING ROOM WHERE QUEEN ELIZABETH DINED IN 1999 OR 1999 AND THE BUFFET WAS EXCELLENT ( AND INCLUDED WITH THE ROOM RATE WE GOT).
THE ROOMS ARE CLEAN AND HAVE EVERYTHING YOU COULD WANT INCLUDING FREE INTERNET. IT IS RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM CITY HALL AND THE DOWNTOWN SHOPPING AREAS ARE ON THE SAME STREET AS THE HOTEL.
