This hotel is a new addition to Durban and is situated in the old seedy docklands area. It seems quite safe now and they have retained some of the old warehouse walls outside the hotel . Decor is strange it is done up presumably to resemble a warehouse with grey and red paint work which is all a bit grim . Our room ( 2034) was a bit of a disaster although others in the group had better rooms . There was no hair dryer but I got one from reception. Unfortunately the plugs were too far away from the mirror for me to see what I was doing and had to try and do my hair in the reflection of the TV. There was an area to hang clothes which was far too high for someone of my height to reach. It was very noisy up until about midnight as there seemed to be some kind of kids' event below and the noise carried to nearly every room on our floor. You could get a code for free internet but it wouldn't work in room 2034. It was fine in the reception area. We had no glasses in the bathroom yet they left chocolates on our pillow . They would be better attending to the basics and forgetting the niceties . Breakfast was however really good with an excellent cheese , ham and chutney selection.
We had a nice walk along the seafront in the morning and this whole area seems to have been redeveloped recently .
