“"In 1985, our wedding reception"”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

was held at the beautiful Beverly Hills which, indeed, has a most wonderful view of the ocean. The staff from A to Z was extremely helpful planning the reception and provided the exquisite dinner with flowing champagne. The wedding ceremony was held at the Old Fort Chapel in Durban and attended by our 19 guests who also stayed overnight at the Beverly Hills It is gratifying to see that after all these years the hotel is still at the top of the list. We hope to return sometime in the future to "re-live" the start of our wonderful life together.

A hotel on the beach of umhlanga excellent location, excellent service with free ironing.
However the building from the outside, not to my style.
Also rooms are small & nothing impressive
Its a good hotel, but not for the price of admission

I suggest oyster box????have not stayed there but reception gives me the impression that is a great place to stay

A weekend of pure bliss, most warm and friendly hosts, warmhearted and genuine personnel, with the most wonderful view over the lighthouse, rocks and rollers. Most luxurious suites invite you to deep and peaceful rest, where your privacy is respected. High quality bedding and linen, classic furniture and old time art etches and sumptuous meals guarantee a serenity that contributes to an unforgettable break away.

We stayed at Beverley hills as a family with young kids. We had been before and loved it but were nervous to take our kids to such a posh establishment. We all had a wonderful time. The staff couldn't have done more - from little cake tea trays for the kids, to hot chocolate every morning for them. The heated pool was a plus. A wonderful time was had by all!

An amazing beautiful setting to match an amazing beautiful hotel. Fabulous service, fabulous food and attentive staff. Would put up against any luxury beach resort in the world. Was heart wrenchingly painful to leave.

While attending Indaba we ate every day at a different venue. On the first day we went to the Beverly Hills Hotel for Breakfast and all I can say is it was by far the best breakfast and the most value for money. The selection and presentation is absolutely phenomenal. The quality of every item on the Buffet was very apparent.

Your host, who's name I have shamefully forgotten, was undeniably the best host we came across. We asked for a site inspection and it was not an issue, everyone in the hotel approached us and explained everything in detail. This was not the case at many other hotels.

To the Management you should be exceptionally proud of your staff. To anyone wanting to stay in Durban I have worked in Top 5 star Hotels and this is by far the best hotel in Durban.

I must just say that every breakfast after Friday morning was such a disappointment and most were the same price!!!

Room Tip: If you sit outside there are monkeys which is unfortunately beyond the hotels control. The hotel is...
