The Benjamin kindly put up around 16 "girls" visiting Durban for our 30th School Reunion. I'm not sure that they didn't regret it, but my word! They were nothing but kind and understanding and went way above and beyond to accommodate our needs.
The hotel itself is stunning - an old Durban home transformed into an elegant, rambling guest house. Our room was pure luxury - a "twin" with 2 queen sized beds and nice bathroom and best of all, a verandah (shared with other rooms). And the linen was divine, the bed super-comfortable, towels big and fluffy, service excellent.
There is one drawback to this lovely place - which is also a plus - it's situated on a particularly busy section of the Florida Road strip, with nightclubs and restaurants a stone's throw away. Convenient if you're looking to party, but noisy if you're wanting relaxation. However, the double glazing was excellent and blocked most of the noise.
All in all, we had a fabulous stay and huge kudos (and thanks) for the staff who put up with us!More
