The staff are fantastic. Super friendly. The hotel is simply beautiful and spotless. Situated in the hub of Florida rd a few steps away from great restaurants. This is definitely my place of choice to stay in Durban from now on!!

The staff are fantastic. The hotel is very comfortable. We had a beautiful room. The breakfast is probably the best I have seen in 40 years of travelling. Complimentary evening drink is such a nice touch. A really great stay and being offered a late check out was brilliant.

"Ask for a room away from the noise of Florida Road"
"If you're a REALLY quiet sleeper. Best to choose a room opposite the road from the road. It's a busy street."
"Avoid front rooms as road quite noisy"
"If you are looking for a quiet room request one at the back of the hotel"
"Request a room not facing Florida Road which are quieter"
