Very Good8.0
The lobby and restaurant retain the feel of an elegant, classy hotel, although the rooms have been modernized and are comfortable. The staff in the restaurant and lobby were friendly and helpful. It is conveniently located for visiting the beach but getting to other locations in the city requires a cab, uber or other transpiration.

I didn't like it. I stayed only for one day with the purpose of sleeping, since I arrived from a trip of two days without sleeping... They kept knocking on my door all the time. After I put a sign of do not disturb they just called me, which is the same as knocking in my door. The corridor was noisy. I was happy to leave!

Great stay in Durban
Just one night, but I really enjoyed it. Great food and some of the nicest staff I've ever met!

Sketchy hotel, but with great sea views
When I checked in the clerk tried to get me to pay more for a sea view, when my reservation clearly stated "partial sea view" as a minimum. Good thing I had a printed copy of the reservation. We got our sea view but the clerk was rude, too. The restaurant food (menu) is good and a good value. But the kitchen is incredibly slow....30 minutes to get a wrap and salad. The service at the morning buffet is dismal. The hotel gave us key that stopped working on purpose after 18 hours. They said this was for security...but they should tell you if you need to get a new key each day. The furnishings in the room were somewhat dirty. And all potential visitors should know that this hotel is on the edge of the red light district and each the beachfront walk is not safe after dark. You can tell that the hotel was once very nice, but it is not even 3 stars now.
