I always stay here when I am in Durban on business. I love the location right on the beach. The rooms are spotless, the linens are good quality. I like the breakfast. The hotel feels like home away from home.
A mini bar would have been great. there is a fridge but it is empty. A chocolate or chips craving could be easily solved with a mini bar. I always thought the margin on these justified the odd person who doesn't come clean but with a credit card on file I am at a loss to understand why. I bring my own coffee plunger because instant coffee is not my cup of tea but a minor inconvenience.
