What a great hotel! Small, safe and comfortable. Rooms are not the largest but well equipped and clean. Everything was great. The staff are exceptional, we had a problem with our car and they went out of their way to help, well done Lauren and Jason (and our waiter who also helped out). Restaurant staff are friendly and professional and breakfast on the terrace everymorning was fab! Best eggs Benedict, just perfect. We were greeted warmly but every member of staff we came into contact with. It is a small hotel and if you are travelling alone, know that you would feel very comfortable and secure.Well done Hotel on the Park, we will be back!!
Everything about my stay in this hotel was fine until check out, when I discovered that I was wrongly charged R350 for a car service from the airport to the hotel. I booked this trip and paid for it through Expedia. Before my trip, I called to confirm and I asked if the hotel has an airport pickup service. A staff said the hotel did not have that service but gave me a number of a car service to make my own arrangement. I NEVER called that car service because a friend who was also attending the conference got a rental car, picked me up from the airport straight to Durban ICC, where I registered for the conference and stayed until after 9 pm for the first program. I called the hotel from the ICC that I was arriving late, and also got direction to the hotel. My friend dropped me off at the hotel that night. When I explained this, one hotel staff member's immediate response was - "What is your friend's name?" "Where is she?" I felt hurt that she questioned my credibility, by asking for the name of my friend. I asked for evidence of car service - the name of the car company that supposedly picked me up from the airport, the time of the pick up, and any form of transaction with the car company, but the hotel staff could not provide any of these. Of course, I refused to pay for a service that I did not receive. The hotel staff did not acknowledge their mistake and did not offer an apology. I travel quite a bit and I have never had such an experience.

Quarters on Avondale offers quiet luxury in an Edwardian setting. The original Edwardian era home has been beautifully …More
The young receptionist helped me order a airport shuttle that picked me up just outside of the hotel for 80 Rand instead of the 250 to 300 rand via taxi. She was very persistent and courteous. I also was delighted after a very good breakfast to find out that it was included in my rate. I strongly recommend the Quarters Hotel. The place is first rate, charming and is at the start of a very buzzy street.
Roseland House is well placed for the beach and harbour (about 20 mins drive), local restaurants and a Woolworths (about four mins' drive down the road), malls, the the university. It is a short drive from main freeways inland and up the coast. The owners are cheerful and helpful, the rooms are pleasant and clean, with period furnishings. Laundry is quick and reasonably priced. Everything works. The property feels safe. There are two nice pools and many of the rooms have sitting out areas. My only small suggested improvement would be fridges in the rooms.
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.
UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE ON THE BEACH DON'T OVERLOOK THIS HOTEL
