Clean but very basic

clean, friendly staff, cannot think of a third
5.7
Power outages frequently but not the hotel's fault. They did not, however, respond well to the outages - exits were locked and getting back to the rooms via the stairway was difficult, as there is no handle on the door to enter the hallways from the stairwells. Staff were also "locked out" by this omission and would knock on the door to the stairway for us to open the door. It was also quite noisy during the day, due to hotel construction. If you plan on being in your room during the day, it may be best to ask if the construction has been completed. If not, it is not worth booking. The rooms are small but clean. The sofa in the room had clearly seen better days (I hope) - we chose not to sit on it. Has a safe and kettle but no fridge. Overall it was fair but not a place I would recommend, given the other options around. It was quite a bit like the Protea Edward in Durban - a hotel that looks dated, tired.

I usually stay at this hotel when in Durban and have yet to have any let down. The place is just so conveniently placed to all the places were want to visit. The staff are wonderful (from the front desk to the housekeeper and maintenance crew) and very knowledgeable on the area and tourist places. Thank you for making our stay so pleasurable. Can't wait for the next visit!
