This is a solid 4 star with very good food and service, very clean rooms. It is about 10 miles from downtown Durban across from the large Gateway Mall. You can usually negotiate a fixed cab fare ($25 US) rather than paying the meter (about $33 US). Plenty of restaurants nearby in the Mall (e.g., Cape Town Seafood). Recommend getting a suite as the price is not that much higher. Small outdoor pool on the roof is nice but not heated - you usually can have it to yourself.
