Highly Recommend
The property is very well maintained and the staff are professional, courteous and helpful. The room was huge and very comfortable. The kitchenette is a real bonus. There is a Spar grocery store directly across the street that carries any food items and toiletries you might want/need.

Comfy and safe.
Very safe neighbourhood. 4 women never scared. We walked to dinner at night. I walked in the day by myself to the beach and shopping. Great variety of food. The buffet breakfast at the hotel very good. Beds were great too.

Good hotel in Umhlanga north of Durban
A good hotel in a great location north of Durban. Modern area with plenty of very good restaurants, coffee bars etc. A great way to be in the Durban area without being downtown. Also, close to the historic Oyster Box Hotel (too expensive to stay there for me), where one can have a drink on the patio overlooking Umhlanga rocks, the old lighthouse, and the Indian Ocean.
