Found the mall to be convenient with everything you require under one roof. From shopping to restaurants to entertainment. I am a regular at Woollies.

I went with my wife and a couple visiting Durban from the LA - USA. WHILE THE PLACE was packed with visitor we still Suceeded to find parking relatively easy. The place was humming. Mainly local visitors. It is paradise for shopping anything you want clothing, food, restaurants, movie houses. Brand names, just names.watches & rings, cellphones. You name it... More

Love the wide options of shops, eating places and activities. Especially enjoy the extended trading hours during the holidays. What sets this mall apart from others is the amount of space available for parking and walking in the mall. The mall is also always clean and safe.

Very good shopping centre- the best in KZN if you ask me. Great movies and huge variety of restaurants and shops. Ionly down side is you need to pay for parking tickets at the info station if you plan on paying with a card.
