Durban is a difficult town to visit. Doesn't lend itself to walking & feels threatening. Quarters in in the Florida road 'trendy' quarter with a number of bars and restaurants around and enough security guards in the street to feel safe, however, we did not find any of the bars or restaurants particularly good. This interesting hotel is a mixture of period buildings, so rooms are high ceilinged and spacious. The breakfasts were fabulous and the staff friendly & attentive.
Given the surroundings it would have been nice to have had an area to sit outside & chill out, but there was no room for this.
If you need to stay in Durban, I would seriously recommend looking at Uhmlanga Rocks - a nice resort about 20 minutes by taxi from here which seems much safer & has great beaches & restuarants & bars. & talking about taxis, always get the hotel to book one - it will be about 50% less than hailing one in the street where 'oh dear the meter is not working'.
- 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
