“Race Days”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Having been the wife of a racehorse owner for many years, we have spent a lot of time at Greyville Racecourse. the Durban View restaurant serves up an excellent lunch and I have even attended a craft fair there also having an excellent meal. Facilities are good, restrooms are plenty, all in all a good experience on race days.

“a racecourse in the middle of a bustling African city”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This racecourse is situated in the middle of the bustling city of Durban. It has all the amenities the racing fraternity can wish for. And if you are a golfer there is a magnificent golf course in the middle of the racecourse. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!!

“Another Fabulous Durban July Race Meeting”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

This year was my fourth cconsecutive year to visit the worl renowned Durban July Race Meeting. The level of organisation is incredible given that over 60,000 people were present. Our dining option had been prebooked and the catering and service was incredible for such a venue.

Ther did not seem to be any problem at any stage with people in queues for any particular service and there was an efficent taxi service after racing.

Well Done Greyville !
