We stayed for 2 nights and also utilized the conference venue for hosting a business dinner. Overall impression is a good level of satisfaction with the level of service delivery. There was a problem with the water supply to the hotel overnight, which caused a bit of inconvenience, but it was handled quite professionally. Rooms are spacious and well equipped with great harbour views. Breakfast is good, but not great in terms of variety, compared to some other hotel groups. Hotel is very conveniently located, as it is within walking distance of quite a few restaurants on the waterfront. Rates are a bit more expensive compared to others in either Richards Bay or Durban.
