If the most important thing in hospitality is the quality of the staff (and in this case their immaculate attire) then Valdior scores 7 out of 5. This is an interior design driven establishment with massed cushions, elaborate drapery and symmetrically hung pictures. A couple of hospitality industry changes would make the place top class. My room was black and... More

Stayed at Valdior for two nights and were placed in the bottom room (room 1). The room is located at the front door and along the parking lot. So needless to say that it was extremely noisy. If you going to stay here make sure you are not placed in this room. Overall, the hotel needs maintenance, a lot of... More

Valdior is a gem in Durban, in a great location. conveniently situated in close proximity to highways, shops and restaurants. Sazi, the hostess went out of her way to ensure I had a memorable stay and nothing was too much to ask for. I was generously offered a complimentary room upgrade to a gorgeous seaview room. Breakfast was absolutely delicious!... More

I simply loved the hospitality. The ladies were very nice and accommodating. My every need was taken care of. The Valdior is beautiful and I am definitely going back in the near future. my room was beautiful. The Valdior has a homely feeling, I did not want to leave. Thanx to Sam, Sazi& Precious for the excellent service...

would have rated my stay excellent if it wasn't for the poor water pressure and shower in the room (Octavia), the shower floor is flat so all the water leaks into the rest of the bathroom, you need to line up towels on the floors to stop this from happening, the water cannot be adjusted properly due to the pressure,...

The two ladies we met were very warm and friendly. This helped a lot in making our stay comfortable. The water pressure is very low and showering when the rest of the guest house is also showering is not pleasant at all, you get either very hot water, or very luke warm water, no middle ground. Other than that, our... More

The hotel and staff really made our stay one to remember. Staff were so very very friendly. The suite was always perfectly made up. It was quiet and we had very restful sleeps. The bed was so amazing. as we both suffer with backache this was very special for us. Thank you for adding to our wonderful SA experience. The... More

Superior B & B with classical décor. First class staff attention and welcome. Walkable distance to the beach and shops. Swimming pool well maintained. Watch out for the monkeys - they will be in your room if you leave the door or windows open

My first remark upon arrival was how glad I was that the place was as beautiful as the pictures of it online! The staff was uber friendly and helpful and hospitable the entire time we were there. Valdior felt like a home away from home that long weekend that we stayed there. The breakfast wasn't inspiring enough to wake up... More
