“Durban Spa - May 2012”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2012

The booking was done last year and I found the reservations staff although a bit slow on the response, very helpful and they made a plan to still find us something for INDABA.

We got a flat on the 10th floor, with 2 bathrooms. All was very clean and we could see that the SPA have put in considerable renovations since we last visited it in May 2010.

It is self catering, and really have the best selection of crockery, pans, etc that I have yet found in any accommodation of this type. Safe parking was also offered at a small extra charge.

The location was walking distance to Ushaka Marine world, and it was on the Golden Mile with a children entertainment and water world right in front.

The beds was great, but we were a bit cold at night and the pillows was very hard (but that is a personal preference).

I loved taking a swim in the heated pools in the evening, it was quite relaxing.

This place is not for the luxury traveler, but a family or someone like me on business that just need a good clean and friendly place to stay.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first 3 floors have balconies, but is very noisy. The ones higher up have more bed...

I enjoyed every moment of my stay. I loved where it was situated, everything was a walking distance and I didn't spend too much time on the road while driving.

I'm definitely coming back with my friends in September!

The location is fantastic but the room we stayed in where not up to standard! It was dirty and the place feels rundown. The staff were very polite and extremely helpful.

Me and ny boyfriend went for vacation and booked for four nights and we arrived way before the checking time , from the front office to the security everybody was so helpful they asked us to go out for breakfast and familiarise ourselves with the city while they are preparing our room. In about 3 hours we got a call from the hotel telling us that the room Is ready we can come and check in. The room was very clean and spacous. Even though we had a partly view of the sea but the service was xcellent!!! We loved the heated pool and the jaccuzzi I'm going back there again in November this time m taking my friends.
