A pleasant stay in Durban!!!
Very nice hotel. However, a 10:00 checkout was way too early. I did convince them to extend mine to 11:00. It would also have been nice to have a complimentary airport shuttle service. This may have been a bit too far of a distance though.

Great but noisy
I have stayed here many times before and will again - it is a very central place to stay, with great service and hospitality. But I hit a few snags this time around. First my room card did not work and I had to have it reset - this happened more than once meaning you cannot access the elevator as it is room key sensitive. Secondly I could hardly sleep with the noise level from the cars racing up and down during all hours of the night. I checked more than once if my windows were all shut as it was extremely loud and felt like they were racing in my room.
