4 days stay at Balmoral
Amazing breakfast buffet. Very friendly staff especially Stephen big smile on arrival and through out! Only staff member that wasn’t as friendly as all the others was a girl called Nonkululeko, not the best attitude and not smiley like the rest of the staff which was very very noticeable!! Furniture old carpets old but clean. Thank you!

Okay Stay
Pleasant enough stay but certainly not 4 star. The area is not the safest, especially recently.

The comfort zone
My stay at the hotel was great, the receptionist were welcoming and very friendly. The rooms are clean and the furniture and the bed are very comfortable The hotel give the area a different perspective compare to what is happening around the area I will definitely book into the hotel whenever I visit Durban again
