The female receptionist on the night of 23/12/2016 was very friendly and competent. She orientated us about the hotel, breakfast times, parking and the nearby attractions. We immediately felt accepted and at home.The family was impressed with the promise kept by the hotel to allocate us two sea facing rooms as we requested. We really enjoyed the sight of the sea and felt the breeze when we opened the windows and seeing visitors jogging or cycling in the early mornings along the promenade. This w... Read more

Really enjoyed my stay here. The staff was very nice, welcoming and the breakfast buffet was very tasty, The WIFI works better in lobby and business areas but is in serious need of an upgrade in the hotel rooms itself but good that it is free. The hotel is in a prime location with great views of the ocean and close to a lot of beach restaurants/bars and fun nightlife.

Where to start? Parking lot across the road is very shady, I parked in front of the hotel one night as my kids were sleeping in the car and it was raining so I had to carry each one to the room, went down to move the vehicle to the parking lot across the road which I had to pay an additional R400 for I noticed a R500 fine on my windscreen, the hotel reported me to Metro and I got a ticket for parking there they admitted to this. The bathroom door only opens if you have the strength of a WWE wres... Read more

Although it is old I found it very convenient for the business trip. It on the beach front, lovely view and quite. Very close to uShaka Marine world and other entertainment. Rooms are neat and tidy, air conditioner functioned well. The conference room is well equipped and the snacks. refreshments adequate during breaks. You don't have to eat in the Hotel, outside on the veranda you can get pup lunches and even supper at very reasonable prices. Far better than Kentucky or a Burger. Breakfast ser... Read more

They really need to close down this hotel and rebuild it from the ground up. Everything is old and dated but worst of all the hotel smells and gives you the feeling of not wanting to touch anything. It's really the worst hotel I have ever been to.

Hotel very close to the beach. Close proximity to Moses Mabhida, uShaka Marine and ICC. Checkin is very seamless here, friendly porters and receptionist,but there's really ,really not much to write about as far as the room. Was booked in room 312, very close to the construction that was taking place in the hotel. Tried boiling water, 10 minutes later, the water hadn't boiled. The breakfast is out of this world, big up, and the restaurant staff was very friendly .

Overall the basics were met. The noise throughout the night of 30 September in front of hotel and nobody did anything about it, was irritating. Please upgrade your parking. It is dodgy. I feel unsafe coming in late night. If there was supposed to be a guard, he wasn't there all the time. Thank you for upgrading us to accommodate my son. The coffee and milk weren't filled up during our stay. We had to request it.

Staff are really friendly and helpful. Quiet and peaceful at night, street and nightlife are not adjacent to the hotel. Daytime a step out the front door is onto the promenade and beach. Parking is available at adjacent parkade (may be R60 per day, depending on your booking conditions). Buffet breakfast is great.

I never had such a noisy night in my life. The room allocated was street facing with the loudest music and people ever! As if that was not enough at 1am someone started knocking at my door and only stopped when I shouted! As early as 5am the people downstairs where the loud music came from started clearing the bottles and another unbearable sound of bottles. That was my worst stay at that hotel ever and I do not think I will EVER book there again! !security is very invisible if it's ever ther!
