Fantastic location right on the beach

Posted 09-May-2014 on Hotels.com
Very satisfied with the facilities, room was squeaky clean and great view overlooking the Indian ocean! Shopping complex nearby with a launderat which was very convenient. Was in the route of the Riksha bus which again proved to be handy...they dropped right in front of the hotel after the city tour. Only minus point is the parking which they dont have enough, hence should not be advertised on the hotels.com profile. We had to pay extra, but not too much and well secured parking.

Great service, great location, great breakfast, great views of the beach. Only gripe was that our door was a bit sticky.

Car got broken into in front of hotel

Posted 08-Apr-2014 on Hotels.com
I have to begin my review warning everyone to please BEWARE OF AUTO THEFT IN FRONT OF THIS HOTEL!!! Unfortunately, our car got broken into in front of the hotel, and we had more than 1000USD in damage. We chose this hotel because of the location, rate and important in our decision was the fact that the description said it had secure parking. When we arrived, at midnight, after a long 9-hr drive, we were told that the secure parking was full and that we should park in front of the hotel, that there is a guard watching the cars. The next morning, to our dismay, the car had been broken into, and the perpetrators damaged our ignition trying to take the car... We were told that the very next night a car was actually stolen from the front of the hotel. It is a pity that 1) secure parking is so limited; 2) there is no real security watching the car, particularly when the hotel knows this is a common occurrence. We were very upset, needless to say. The hotel manager, Andres, was nice and helpful and arranged for a locksmith to come try to help and gave us address for the dealership where we could take the car to be fixed. But this really put a bad taste in my mouth for this hotel. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, with a beautiful view, right across the beach, close to main attractions. The breakfast was excellent, and staff friendly. I would not stay there again because of the parking situation.

Loved It

Better than expected, beautiful ocean view, restaurants (casino mall) nearby, great ocean beach walk and city developments. Prepare for beggars and stay close after dark if on foot. Hotel to casino is patrolled. Free breakfast is fabulous as is hotel decor.

Ok hotel

Posted 13-Feb-2014
Pros: Breakfast buffet was really good!!
Cons: Shower wasn't draining fast enough... It feels gross to be in a tub full of water while you're showering.
Location: Hotel on the beach front (south beach) directly across from the beach; Sun coast casino a few minutes; uShaka marine world
Not the best in town but for the price and location I guess it would do if you want to save some bucks. If you have enough money to go to a better one then go ahead, but if you're on a tight budget then give it go.

Great service, great food, great hotel!

Posted 25-Dec-2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is a great advert for South Africa, friendly service, very clean, safe, and comfortable. Cafe Jiran was probably the best place we ate the entire time we were in Durban, and the coffee was absolutely fantastic, only topped by the friendly, and excellent service to go with it. We stayed in a 1 bedroom studio on the top floor and the views of the seafront were amazing, car parking outside was safe, due to the excellent work of the car guards and hotel security. I can highly recommend this hotel if you're looking for excellent value in Durban.

Pleasant hotel (but staff not at the 4 star level

Posted 07-Dec-2013
Pros: Its location.
Cons: Staff's information about the city in general and about transport facilities in particular
Location: Safe place to stay, constantly patrolled by municipal security force. To get to an excellent beach is just a 10 minutes walk.
Stayed but one night in this hotel: Our room was large with outstanding view to the ocean. Enjoyed a tasty English breakfast (comlimentary) and a good lunch at a reasonable price in the hotel's restaurant.
