No really negative comments on this hotel. Just that the room I had faced inland overlooking the carpark (and construction) which is not an issue if you are out every day. Close to the nearby Shopping area. Room was fine -had an issue with the safe that was resolved after much fiddling around, by replacing the entire unit. The swipe card for the lift seemed to work erratically (not just mine) and actually became a joke amongst lift users. The Butchers Block restaurant was a pleasant surprise, very reasonably priced, reasonably atmospheric as well. Car parking was an extra charge which I disagree with as a paying hotel guest. Very straight forward place to find for a driver new into Durban. Staff were friendly and resolved my laundry issue of being overcharged by dealing with the outsourcers. The pricing is in keeping with hotel scales. The room was very clean, great shower, just difficult to get the internal room temperature right as the room settings got changed every day.
