Stayed 3 nights at the Square boutique hotel recently that is situated in Umhlanga Durban. It is rated a four stars and is part of the Three Cities Group. At the time of writing the hotel has a brand new feel to it and does not have that damp and dank fishy odour to it yet. It is situated a short drive to anything you need to get to; Gateway Shopping Centre, Virgin Active gym, seafront, Highways, Restaurants, my most favourite one being Remos Fratelli, do not miss the experience of eating here (see my review on this)
Wi-Fi is very fast and even the area in which it is situated has 3G mobile signal most of the time. So for completing reports and for labourious work after work it is not a problem as there is a small work/desk area in all of the rooms
The only points that I found annoying and for any SKY NEWS fans out there like myself, you will know what I mean, I was trying to cover the recent Malaysia Airline that went missing and tried to find the latest update on its disappearance. There was a only a few channels available and although CNN was displayed an error message came up saying that this wasn’t available. The ladies at reception put it down to satellite issues with the latest storm that they had, which proved wasn’t the problem. On the 3rd night I was flicking thru the stations to pass time before going out for supper and found CNN tucked away under the Disney land channel.
The bathrooms are stunning and very clean however the shower boasts a huge head but a pitiful dribble is what you get instead beautiful downpour you thought would be delivered. The restaurant is on the small size but adequate and cosy, easy on the eye décor and comfortable surroundings in which enjoy a delicious early morning breakfast.
Just on a last note is on my last day there I decided to check out the fitness room and Spa area..Wow !! this has a wow factor and gives the most incredible view point of this beautiful City, see the pics attached but they certainly do not do any justice.
