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.

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 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.
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
Regret taking the hotel should have done more research, didn't meet my standards. Food limited, wrong food orders or order taking for ever to come. No intertainment or transport very poor. In future will proper need to research before l take anything on offer : big regret

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.
