Positive Reviews

Great location on the beach

The hotel's location has received strong support from many previous guests. As well as being right on the beach, the property is also within comfortable distance of many things to do in central Durban.

Enjoyable pool and fitness centre

When it came to public amenities offered by the accommodation, the outdoor swimming pool has been spotlighted as a great place to reside when on-site. In a similar vein, the 24-hour fitness centre was also described as being well-equipped.

Friendly and efficient staff

Many recent guests have admired the service delivered by the hotel's staff members. Alongside an efficient and professional approach, the property's personnel – from those working in the restaurant to those on reception – were reliably said to be really welcoming and friendly.

Negative Reviews

Rooms have limited space

One of the most frequent criticisms aimed at the accommodation relates to the size of the rooms. Previous visitors have often claimed that the rooms were overly cramped with little in the way of moveable space.

Open plan bathrooms not ideal

It has been noted by former guests that the hotel's standard rooms do not feature a separate private bathroom. Instead, the rooms are configured with open plan bathroom facilities – something that has proven to be an understandable inconvenience at times.

Overpriced for what is received

Despite providing a variety of facilities and a complimentary breakfast, the accommodation was usually perceived as noticeably overpriced overall. This was usually attributed to the aforementioned rooms, and reportedly expensive cost of spa services and meals at the on-site restaurant.
