the hotel looked a little tired and was in need of some repair. For the amount paid I did expect a little more for the money spent. Not close to the beach. No view from the room. There are other options available for the same price.

Check-in was a quick, painless exercise with 2 kids after a long trip it was wonderful. We arrived a little early but our room was ready. Staff are friendly and willing to assist in any way possible to make ur stay comfortable. It was wonderful to come back to a clean and tidy room every morning after breakfast.

Constant deactivation of access keys is an inconvenience. Fridge is way too small. Please provide a microwave, iron and ironing board in each room instead of calling for it daily. at times plates are not properly cleaned.

We stay here often when in Durban, it is convenient to get to Gateway and the restaurants in Chartwell Ave, about R20 in an Uber. Breakfasts are good and whilst I did not eat the Buffet Dinner it did look good and reasonable cost. It is clean and friendly

service and hospitality at its best, breakfast was always good, rooms maybe slightly small but does the job if you don't spend much time in it. overall one of the best hotels I like staying when going to Durban, Value for money and conveniently located.

great but gym very poorly equipped. breakfast was up to standard and very efficient, better than any previous time with no delays for service. hotel staff was very helpful.The experience would have been perfect if gym was better equipped. Also the towels at the hotel and gym was of a VERY poor quality. it was very hard and rough.

Parking is complex. Kids swimming by being supervised by parents makes it very difficult for parents. The hotel has a life guard who need to supervise these kids. The pool is so small that this is possible. Kids must wear the identifier and be allowed to swim for as long as they know how to swim.

It was good value for money and the staff was professional, helpful and very professional. The location was perfect as its close to a shopping mall and various amenities and it links quite well to main routes to various places. I would suggest though that a link is made with various surrounding places for entertainment and transport facilities explored.
