        Great value but nice”

        Its a great boutique hotel close enough to the beach, shopping center and restaurant hub. The staff were friendly and always willing to help. The rooms are small but there is more than enough space for a short stay. The linen and towels are fresh and clean. The breakfast were delious with a variety of fresh fruits, cheeses, salmon, cold meats and pastries. You could also help yourself to a cooked breakfast or order a egg done to your likeing.

        Super friendly staff - from the parking attendants to the front of house staff to the restaurant staff. Well-sized rooms and bathrooms, very clean and comfortable. Rooms have a bar fridge, which is great! The only downer is that the pool area was closed due to storm damage. Conveniently located, close the hub of Umhlanga (restaurants and shops etc) and only a few km from the beach.

        We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. Wish we could have used the hotel pool but there was a private function being held at the time. Although a shuttle service was provided, the service ended at 5pm on Saturday afternoon. It would have been appreciated to extend that time to 7pm, so that we could watch sunsets and add more convenience over a weekend stay. However, we had a wonderful stay and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

        Beautiful Hotel Spoiled by Bad Management”

        Lovely spa, pool terrace and comfy cosy room. The room service dinners were really great and served by an incredible waitress, always putting a smile on my face.

        I feel that the GM and HOD's are not very serious about their customers and the customers experience in the hotel. The house keeping staff were very noisy in the corridors and made me feel like was in a flea market and not a so called boutique hotel. The cooked buffet breakfast was ice cold on 2 out of 3 of my breakfasts at the hotel. My final morning at the hotel the breakfast was so cold I actually had to order a cab and go to the gateway mall for a breakfast. On check in I had arranged a late check out for my final day, this was not communicated to the other team it seems as a very stroppy front desk girl phoned me to ask me to check out (this after I also had to leave the hotel to get a decent breakfast). I did speak to the GM and she sent me a copy paste type email (I have seen previous examples of her "sincere" correspondence on agoda) . Staying at this hotel really spoiled what should of been a relaxing, recharging get away! Not worth the cost of the rooms and flights.

        The only thing about the place is that they do not tell you that they charge a tourism levy. You only find out when you get there. Also the place is right next to the square which seems to have some nightclub or something that plays loud music till early hours of the morning which is a bit annoying if you are a light sleeper But other than that.. Amazingly good food and fantastic staff

        Adequate but needs a refresh in a few areas to maintain the longevity of its rating and service.”

        The staff are friendly but speaking from experience need to better understand the needs of their patrons...parking arrangements were not explained...assistance with luggage was not offered...the wifi password was not listed or provided nor was I informed as to the spa services on offer. For a 4 star establishment the furniture and general upkeep of the room and of certain fixtures were in a state of disrepair or damaged. I found the menus in particular the breakfast menu a little boring and left you with little choice...my personal dining experience left me wanting after ordering twice from the menu only to be told that in the middle of the week you had run out of certain food items I was quiet disappointed...I like your establishment and would love to return and would definitely rave about my stay even more if only these minor details were rectified I am sure it would not take much. Look forward to it.

        We really enjoyed our stay at the Square. Parking was so convenient as was the spa on the top floor. Will definitely go again.

        Best Hotel”

        The staff were great. It felt like a 5 star hotel. It was really value for money. The buffet breakfast was spectacular especially if you are on a healthy eating plan: you want options & there were plenty.

        The Square is more suited as a business hotel for a night stopover. It is not suited for couples or for a romantic getaway.

        One of the female security gaurds by the parking lot was rude. ”

        I was booked in at room 29 and parking bay 29 was also allocated to me. I kept on going in and out of the hotel and she was familier with my face. When i came back on Saturday evening, there was a car parked in my space. I then asked why did she allow someone else to park in my allocated space, she said next time she'll have my name written on the parking space like i am a manager or special guest since i think i own the parking space.

        Professionalism of management ”

        Management staff needs to be more professional when addressing staff on issues... I was asleep when I woke up to an argument with management and a cleaning staff.that certainly needs to addressed.i will not advise anyone to stay at the square boutique,because you cannot sleep in peace
