Stayed here for three nights.The room was not well maintained.Had a problem with the television.no sound.They could not fix it and no apology either!!Found the staff at the reception to be quite indifferent and difficult to get a smile out of them.
The housekeeping staff were a lot more friendly and helpful.
The hotel has only rooms and there is nothing else.No restaurant or gymnasium or anything.They have an arrangement with two of the adjoining restaurants for breakfast and meals.The good part is one of those restaurants is butcher boys which has good food.Their starters especially the grilled calamari and feta salad were brillant.perfectly grilled calamari.The steaks were right up there with the best.But this is not a review for buthcer boys so...
The Free wifi was a good thing but the reception in the room was quite poor and the wifi was down for one entire morning.Speed was very slow.
No chair to sit on in the room.had to work on my laptop and they had this small stool in front of the desk.It was very awkward to sit on this and work.
The location right on Florida road is nice-If you like loud music and cars revving up through the night.If you dont and you have one of the front facing rooms then you will not be very happy.Ordinary glass windows let in a lot of noise and i had a back facing room which had a lot of delivery trucks coming in early morning and were loud enough to be disturbing.The hotel is only two stories so you cannot escape by going higher!!
Would i stay here again.Yes, only for what is around the hotel and definitely not because of the hotel itself!!
If they could train the staff to be more guest friendly and make sure the internet and TV works well, I would recommend this place as a very basic option in Durban.
