            Needs a bit of a polish”
            Hotel was good overall. Staff were friendly, breakfast was ample and tasty and Wi-Fi speed was better than average. Hotel appearance in need of a little sprucing up, though. Curtains in the lobby look like they haven't had a wash in years, and some of the furnishings are starting to look a little tatty. Also, exterior concrete surfaces are in need of a thorough scrub as Durban humidity has, no doubt, contributed to discolouration.

            You won't sleep but everything else is good”
            On arrival, there is inadequate guidance to where the parking area is. When you eventually get there, it's full, so you'll need to park at the mall and get reception to process it for you (fortunately there's a parking entrance close by). Parking is supposedly R30/day (a rip off for all that inconvenience). The room is spacious and the decor, simple and clean. The bed is atrocious. Our mattress had completely collapsed where seemingly myriads of other people had slept. I feel a good night's rest is a key feature of a hotel and this one doesn't have it. Prepare to wake up (if you ever sleep) with aches and pains from a lack of body support. The breakfast spread is really good and may help you overcome some of your tiredness from the night before. The rooftop pool area is sufficient but the pool is shallow to cater for both kids and adults. There is a bar up there too. The elevators may, or may not, decide to work, so you'll wait around a lot. Check out is easy.

            Style, rooms, Ambiance
            I received much more than I expected from what the hotel group calls a three star hotel. It compares with any other of the four star hotels in the area of the Gateway shopping complex. ON my day of departure I had a meeting with work colleagues, but did not require a meeting room or the like. The friendly staff informed me that I can use the sitting area at the back of the hotel as the area is fairly quiet during the day. What a welcome surprise to receive such service. The rooms are adequate on terms of size and infrastructure. I was travelling alone and it you travel with a companion which you may not be very comfortable with, the privacy may be a problem.

            This is not my first time staying at this hotel, and there's a good reason to come back. The hotel is at one of the best locations a traveler can have, directly connected to the Gateway shopping centre. However, the room is not that clean this time for some reasons. Otherwise, I would have given a higher score. Overall, this is a highly recommended hotel for anyone.

            This is by far one of the best hotels I've stayed in South Africa. THe service is great, the room is very new and big, with great equipments and definitely clean. The most notible thing on this hotel is its location- it is actually connected to the biggest shopping center in South Africa- the Gateway Mall (you exit the side entrance of the hotel, to enter gate 8, close to Toys'r'us) The staff was very helpful and professional- and what's even better, they give me free WIFI, which is a price saver for someone like me a business traveller. This is highly recommended hotel for a very good price- don't think, just go for it.

            Got there, aircon was broken, took them 8 hours to fix. Parking is a joke, you have to end up parking at gateway shopping center and getting your ticket processed by reception every day. Tv provided still runs on steam and coal. For the same cost pp per night you can find far nicer hotels. Elevator was also out of service. Room was generally unclean. Carpets need a steam clean.
