Stayed on two occasions
First stay was great with no complaints. Restaurants were reasonably priced with great choices of dishes and wines. Parking was easily accessed and staff very helpful and friendly. Our second stay a few days later was a slightly different story. Hotel was very busy with the music awards which meant normal guests were not attended to in a timely manner. For some reason our honesty bar was locked and it took staff a good hour to come to our room to unlock it. We also had to call housekeeping to arrange for a maintenance person to attend to faulty lighting.

Good experience
Nice modern hotel with highly trained staff. Quick response when you require assistance. Need to cater for halal food though. Breakfast was same thing everyday. Location convenient but not a place to roam around

Simply fantastic
A real five star as compared to some doubtful rating of some other accommodation. Very classy, spacious, comfortable and clean. Helpful staff and brand new business lounge. Would recommend. Best so far in Durban

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful on an international standard. I will definitely stay at the Hilton Durban again. I think the cab provided to the airport was much to expensive and should be given to customers at a reduced rate seeing that they stayed at the hotel. The Selvan my driver was very pleasant and i felt comfortable with his driving skills.
