This is the second time we have stayed at the Kenway Hotel., and it seems to get better everytime we go. From the time you step into reception, you just find, happy, helpful staff. The rooms are lovely, clean and comfortable. The meals are lovely, and well priced. Will definitely recommend them.

The deck, with nice rattan chairs, has distant views of the beach, and is nice, airy place for sipping your drinks. A small outdoor pool makes for a pleasant quick dip. The bar food was excellent here, and very good value. Nearby is a very nice beachfront for a walk or a swim. Staff were good in the hotel, but...

On arrival there was no Porter but Security Guard carried our bags. The staff was very friendly & helpful. In the bathroom the tiles in the shower were dirty with black stains. All that was needed was to give them a good scrub. Plus dirty carpets & dusty furniture in the room as well. We had Hard Dry bread served...

We arrived to a reception and a money-hungry porter who had to lead us up a really dirty carpet-stairs made us the first discomfort. Bad feelings already there. The corridor was even worse dirty added with a smell of not-cleaned carpets. We didnt want to take our shoes off in the dirty room-carpets. Hiddeous! Four-stars, NOT. We found hair from...

Our second visit to The Kelway on our road trip to Indaba Travel in Durban. Our rooms was spacious, comfortable, clean, with tea and coffee making facilities. The hotel restaurant is very good and the breakfast was excellent. All the staff we encountered were wonderfully welcoming and friendly. The hotel is about 2 min walk from the ocean / beach,...

Overall this was a good hotel. We were in pe for the Ironman race and this was a good location near all the events and was a good price. There were good places to eat near by, the only thing missing was the grocery store was a little far away by foot but still close by car.

Tea/Coffee facilities available in the room. You need to check with reception for WiFi connection- you need a degree to work it out! The a-la-carte menu better than the buffet.. Steak and prawns really lovely. Reception staff really good-friendly, yet professional. Thank You!
