Location: Not in the center of Durban but pretty close to the M4, the stadium and the nice restaurants around. Actually you can walk down to the botanical garden and walk to some nice restaurants.
Staff: Very friendly and helpful, everything we asked for was promptly done.
Food: A very generous and well tasting breakfast, if you go for the big portions you better come hungry or skip your lunch. Fresh prepared so it might take a while but sitting in the shade of the trees it was also relaxing.
Room: We had 4.2 that had a very nice balcony a large bed a good minibar and a large bathroom. As there was no divider between the shower and the rest of it be careful to do things in the right order. It was clean and hat the needed amenities but here come the two points which brought the review down to 3 stars.
Number one is that the walls are way too thin. If I can hera when the guy next door goes to the loo what can he hear.
And number two, one thing I have so far never seen in a hotel.Often you have a fan in the bathroom that goes on when the light is on, often it runs some time after,.often it does not run... but this is the first time I have ever seen the fan connected to a motion detetctor. So whenever a person goes into the bathroom it starts. No way to avoid this. And of course there is a certain chance that you wake the other person in the room with this. And sorry as per my review policy, bad sleeping quality in a hotel makes 3 stars the max it could get.
The overall design with the dogs was very nice so if you consider the two points metioned above it might make for a good hotel.
One more thing: The nices do not disturb card I have ever seen. Make sure to take a look at it when you are there.
