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.
This hotel is right on the beach, with beautiful views off the balconies. Both for the ocean and people watching. This was the cheapest hotel along the beach that looked decent, and it was better than decent. It was pretty good, and for the price it was excellent. There were renovations going on (which was stated at time of booking), but other than that everything was excellent. I paid for a room with breakfast, and the buffet was very good. I loved the waffles. And the staff loved my 10 month old son, which was nice.

excellent friendly staff,area a bit iffy on the downtown side of seafront, food great , crime in area not so good, but if you use common sense, no problem. Did have a theft from our room on last day, but otherwise great holiday.

Despite my original disappointment with their lack of tourism knowlege, the hotel was overall better than expected. I got a beachfront room with two beds (it was just me!), TV, lovely bathroom, safe, etc for a great price. Staff was friendly, food was good. Highly recommended.
"Clean, comfortable, welcoming and excellent food"
The hotel is situated in one of the more desirable areas of Durban just down the road from the Presidential Palace. The premises are secure, but it also has private security as an added measure.
The rooms are spacious and well furnished, the staff friendly and hospitable and the menu just excellent as is the food.
The head waiter, Jean Francois, is an excellent source of knowledge and advice to any tourist. His advice and general guidance was greatly appreciated over the following weeks of our stay.
This was the perfect start to our holiday in KZN and I highly recommended it to others. Needless to say, it is also excellent value for money.
Jean Francois appreciated real coffee and kindly obliged my request for fresh coffee to be brought to our room before breakfast.
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.
It met our needs AND our expectations. The beds were fantastic, the view of the was gorgeous, the location couldn't have been better, the staff was overly quick to respond to our needs, the breakfast was phenomenal, and the size of the rooms were "just right!"
While the exterior of the building shows its age, the rooms were well equipped, and the lobby and restaurants were nicely decorated. Parking is secure, but a bit troublesome to get in and out of with a larger vehicle. Kobos (the porter) was a pleasure and truly went the extra mile to avail himself and ensure all our needs were met. The Front Desk staff was also helpful and cheerful.
Can't wait for another trip and stay at the BelAire
