    Very good

    The other people in a hotel were polite and did not make noise in the passages

    The floor carpet should be removed. The room was smelling of dampness

    Location is best facing the harbour....as someone from the inland I enjoyed the sea views alot......easily accessible to down town...durban...

    Staff are so riggid...not welcoming....they wait for a guest to say hello to them & ask for help instead of vice versa......was given tea in a dirty cup.....

    Superb

    It serves the purpose of being in Durban for a holiday.

    Please keep update information of events and bus routes updates at your reception or in rooms.

    Fabulous

    the hotel has an excellent location at the center of durban. most of the shopping mall are right behind the hotel. there is no need for extra cost on transportation to shopping mall. just 2-3 minutes walk from the hotel, you find yourself in the main market.

    as much as i love the hotel, i need to bring up this. i am supposed to be charged 50% deposit of the total cost of the hotel at booking time to secure my booking but the hotel went ahead to charge my card the full cost but after complaining and telling the hotel manager about the transaction alert from my bank that confirms the debit of the full cost, the hotel manager or so, Peter refunded my money.

    Fabulous

    The small restuarante is cheap and the food is good. You dont have to leave the hotel it is inside. The staff is friendly.

    We have a very nice view

    The hotel is close to the harbour where we had to be the following day for a cruise to Portugese Island

    I felt very unsafe, it is not in a good area.

    Nothing, it is nothing like Riviera hotle in Vaal. It is listed with the hotel mentioned, but no rating hence the Vaal one is 5 star.
