The revamped and relaunched Elangeni/ Maharani is very Elegant and enjoys a great beachfront views in the not-so-crowded part of the Durban Golden Mile. It also is a welcome change from the now popular Durban North beaches. I have previously stayed in this complex on the Elangeni Tower , which I found very pleasant. This time, as a party with 7 rooms were allocatedvthe Maharani Tower. The rooms are well appointed, decor lovely and very clean. I was surprised to have no bath though.
Check in is advertised as 2pm and I arrived at 10am and efficiently had our luggage put in storage until the rooms were ready. Things did no go as planned as the room cleaning was very slow. The rooms were released in drips and drabs. By the time my last room was released at 17h30, I was royally annoyed. This dampened my regard for the otherwise great hotel , somewhat.
Room service is prompt and i recommend the Mini-bunny . Delicious .
