Not sure about the standard in Durban because this was my first visit however I don'r really agree with all the high rating values. The position is excellent and the views on the oceans are amazing however rooms and toilette are small. The general feeling is that the whole structure needs some serious renewal.
There are 2 restaurant inside the hotel. The food at buffet if quite good for dinner but is always packed of people and overcrowded. The breakfast is fine but a bit on the lower end in terms of items quality. The hotel would be generally fine but is not matching the high expectations coming from this high rating.
When I was there the hotel was under heavy maintenance works for very noisy until 8 pm! Hopefully with these works it will get better in the next future.
