Lovely hotel, good location for convention centre

Posted 05-Sep-2014
Pros: Cleanliness Peaceful Fairly central Executive lounge Views
Cons: Lighting in lounge part of our room was quite dim, we had to switch most of the lamps on most of the time.
Location: Convention centre. Five mins car ride to the beach. Ten to twenty mins from UShaka. Half an hour or so from airport.
High crime area so please be careful and take a taxi whenever leaving hotel. The local criminal fraternity will target tourists. Good location for convention centre, which is next door and fairly central so taxis to most places are reasonably cheap. The concierge were very helpful as were reception staff and staff in executive lounge were very attentive. Hotel was clean and the suites are certainly spacious.

Stayed for one week to attend a conference at conference center next door. The hotel was excellent; the daily breakfast was awesome and the health club was well equipped and available 24/7 with room key.

Great location with no useful concierge service.

My stay was good but being practically no concierge service available, I had to use private taxi arranged by the doorman for sight seeing.

What you see is what you get

Posted 01-May-2014
Pros: Its posh looking and the rooms are posh too. Its comfortable and it takes the stress of travelling and moving about away as soon as you are in the hot
Cons: Night staff didn't seem to be anywhere and struggled to find one for assistance
Location: My stay was short (2 nights) and I was busy
The hotel was efficient and the service great. I had a last minute booking and everything was in place by the time I arrived a short time later. The hotel deserves its 5 star rating

Great stay. Food was excellent and well worth it. Not right next to beach. Renovations to lobby during stay were not disruptive. Very helpful staff. Downtown walk to Workshop probably not advisable in late evening as it did not look very safe.

Hotel is overdue for renovations

This hotel is not in the best location in Durban. Avoid it unless you need to be in downtown Durban. A better option would've been Umhlanga. Room furniture was very tired. Staff were mostly pleasant. Breakfast was good with some variety.

Nice hotel

We used the Hilton as a stop over, it's being renovated which is not so good , service is slow but if you stay on a Friday then recommend the buffet dinner it's the busiest night. The service is slow, the decor is outdated and although comfortable rooms , it is in need of repairs. Could be a great deal better.
