Overlooking the Indian Ocean, located in one of the wealthiest suburbs in SA, the Beverley Hills hotel is iconic in terms of the history it possesses and the views it provides. Sol Kerzner had the foresight to choose the best location, gaining first mover advantage in this now highly sought after area in Durban.
Hubby and I stayed at the hotel for two nights. Check in was smooth and we were escorted by the charming Sihle to our room (standard room). It was compact and had everything one needed, but if one prefers more space, then it is advisable to upgrade to a higher category room. Breakfast was good and staff were pleasant at all times.
We had an issue with the shower and having brought it to the staff's attention it was sorted out quickly.
Overall a pleasant experience, but it left us wanting still. Perhaps our expectations were too high given the rave reviews...perhaps its because we had arrived at this hotel after a phenomenal stay at a rival "hotel" in the province...or perhaps we have stayed at enough 5 star hotels worldwide and locally now to know when expectations are being met or exceeded.
