I stayed for the Comrades Marathon in June 2013. My room had a beautiful view of the ocean, which delighted me every morning with a magnificent sunrise. The room was large, comfortable and spotless. Bed was great. Right opposite the Comrades expo and very close to the start line. All the international runners stayed there, which made for a fantastic atmosphere.
Breakfast - a real highlight of each day! For a curry-phile like myself this was the best breakfast I have ever experienced in my trips around the world. Variety included broadbean curry and rotis, eggs any way, cereals and fruit, numerous european bread options, pastries and muffins, cheese/meats/salmon. They even had wheatgrass powder and seeds/dried fruit for us healthies. Dining room was comfortable and pleasant. Curry for breakfast every day was amazing.
Security is still a concern in Durban, but I felt safe in the hotel.
The hotel even accepted two deliveries for me from health food shops, which (after a few times asking) were delivered to my room.
The day before the race, a complimentary platter or sports drink, food bar and a motivational note were delivered to the room. What a fantastic touch for us Comrades runners.
Overall, I was extremely satisfied with this hotel and will stay next year.
