Bad service from staff and problems with room "key

Location, location, location
Whenever we come to Durban we stay at the hotel and have always been happy. However this time staff service and continuous problems with the key blighted the stay.

Great experience overall

Convenience , cleanliness, comfort
Was a great stay. Will definitely be back..... Hotel cleaning staff do not knock upon entry so privacy is little of a problem which should be addressed by management.

Gateway - Umlhanga

location, comfort, cleanliness
I was very irritated to be given a quote, paid and on receipt i was notified that the cost did not included breakfast. Breakfast then costs R155.0???????? i will rather go eat somewhere else thanks.

Three Cities

Location, big comfortable bed, modern look
All good, but R18 for a small bottle of water is a bit excessive. My biggest issue is that the bathroom door is glass and does not close properly - there is a gap that stays open. So your partner can hear and see everything you are doing while on the toilet. Some things should be left to the imagination.
