I stayed here over the comrades marathon weekend (31/5 - 4/6). Very nice place to stay if your running the comrades, really caters well for runners. I spent 4 nights at the Maharani and I did expect a bit more for almost US$200 per night. Great location, North Beach is nice and clean, on the beach front with lots to do.
My Room was clean, comfortable and had almost everything I needed, except working Wifi...
Also within a 10 minute walking distance of the Durban Convention Centre. The view from the hotel are amazing, wish my room had a balcony...
Con's - In room dining was an issue, could never get through. The Hotel restaurant "The Piatto" has very slow service. Could never get through to the fronts desk using the room phone :(. The hotel was currently undergoing renovations. No iron or ironing board in my room. No Wifi or Wifi was not working...
Plus - staff was very helpful and friendly, Thank you to the gentleman who had to fix my room safe. buffet breakfast was quiet good. The Japanese restaurant at Elangeni was really nice and were really accommodating to a hungry and tired comrades runner.
