First time to Durban. Arrival, check in and the room were fine for us with the service and advice by the staff all good. This included ordering taxis and advice on where to go and what to avoid. The straight answer is this hotel we found fine, however the location!!! Yes you are on the front overlooking the beach great....

It's a lovely hotel situated on the beachfront ... It can be a bit noisy as you may hear the people on the street walking by as it's a high traffic area ... close to just about everything ... Food was very good especially the alacarte menu .. The one thing that stood out about this hotel while I stayed...

Authentic and charming but not for those appreciating calm streets and modern AC;) Excellent staff, nice reception, and good breakfast. However we were let down by the food in the evening. An amusement park in front of the hotel is a bit noicy afternoons and girls walking the street at night makes you feel a bit sad... Beachfront is said...

I was booked in for 4 nights recently ( February 1014 ) and believed that my personal safety was of high priority to this hotel. During the evening of the third night, I'd returned to the Balmoral at about 22h00. On my way back to my room, I went though a bad experience - my personal safety was compromised and...

I managed to get a half price deal on AGODA for this hotel and only stayed two nights so I was happy with my room and service. It does need a bit of an upgrade but I found it charming and the beds are very comfortable. I had a hire car and would not walk around here on my own...

A total disgrace, was told to go inside the hotel from the terrace bar because 2 guys were contemplating mugging me on the hotel terrace bar. I was told this is a very dangerous part of town and I can agree. I wrote to the tourist board about this hotel and place. It attracts families and kids and is very...

I suspect this hotel is as expensive as it is because it's right on the beach front, but not really value for the money. The cons: hotel needs some TLC as it seems quite run down and customer service was so-so...missed a wake up call one morning, refused to let me stay one hour past check out as my flight...

We have had to mention this hotel in our reviews of Durban. Whilst walking the Golden Mile we felt in need of some food and did not want to eat in a fast food restaurant. We left the sea front crossed the road and this hotel had outside seating in the shade and it seemed ideal. We entered ans asked...
