Just finished my third Comrades Marathon and with it, my third stay at the fabulous Quarters Hotel. Terrific, friendly property. Shannon and the rest of the staff are just so incredibly helpful with all aspects of your visit. For example, they staffed up at 4am to ensure the Comrades Marathon runners staying with them had a proper breakfast before heading out.
The location, on Florida Road, is far superior to a downtown or beach location. Take a five minute taxi ride to those areas during the day for a visit, but stay at the Quarters. Many restaurants and bars within a 5 min walk of hotel, all very safe. (private security seems to be on every street corner) In three years down there, have never felt unsafe on Florida Road, while downtown and Hilton area can be a bit dodgy at night. (Although I must say Durban has improved the beach experience quite a bit over the past couple of years)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In 1999, Durban businessman and entrepreneur Robert Maingard had an inspiration to convert four Victorian homes on Durban’s Florida Road in the suburb of Morningside into a luxury boutique hotel. Restored to their former glory, these beautiful buildings were transformed into “Quarters Hotel Florida Road.” Since opening its doors in 1997, Quarters Hotel Florida Road has become the hotel of choice for many guests who regularly return to stay at Quarters. In 2008 an ideal property became available on Avondale Road, a short (walking) distance from the original Quarters and the decision was taken to convert the property into “Quarters Hotel Avondale Road.” Again meticulous restoration was done to its original Edwardian architecture. All the luxury and outstanding service synonymous with the Quarters Brand is apparent in Quarters Hotel Avondale Road. ... more less
