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

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.
It was a difficult time as I had travelled from the U.K. to attend a family funeral. I wanted a place that would look after us during this difficult time. I am happy to say that on all levels : the grand beauty of the colonial hotel, pool, ambience, dining on the outside terrace over looking Durban, 5 star food and amazing service from the staff. Jean - Francois and his team were exceptional in meeting our needs and requests. I am very grateful for their understanding, professionalism and superb service. Our family would like to say a Big thank you to all the staff and hope to return under better circumstances in the future.
We got a room overlooking both the ocean and the river and were chaffed to boot!. Rooms were lovely, clean and the staff super friendly and helpful front desk to the security guards. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe - away from the madding crowds.Will definitely stay here again!!
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.

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.
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.
Hotel was very comfortable and quiet, located on a nice part of the beach with fantastic views.
Breakfast had plenty of selection to choose from.
Justin on reception was always willing to assist and was very helpful

Upstairs rooms were clean and comfortably furnished, the shower in our room was small and a large person would have difficulty with this. Breakfast was superb each morning, with a variety of choices from the buffet menu - wish that they would have offered bacon as a choice, as the spicey options are not everyone's choice. The gardens all well laid out and breakfast on the covered verandah is a comfortable pleasure.
The owners have certainly spent considerable time and effort in making you feel comfortable. I would suggest that the web site show map co-ordinates as most people now have a SatNav. At the moment Google Earth shows the hotel on the wrong side of the road and 50m short of the actual address.
All in all, this is a hotel that I would come to again and would recommend to my friends.
