The Hotel is situated in a pedestrian area (St. Georges Mall) and is very central, just walking distance from Greenmarket Square and numerous restaurants, The Grand Parade, City Hall, The Company’s Garden and other historical sites. Staff at the front office (situated on level 1 of the hotel building) were very helpful and courteous – I was pleasantly surprised when they arranged for a breakfast take away for my wife and me when we had to leave early on the check-out day. So, very service oriented and supportive of guest requests – a definite plus. Note that the full payment for your stay is to be made on check-in. This appears to be the norm in the hotel industry in both Durban and Cape Town. The room was very modern and well organized and we had the benefit of a view of the Table Mountain from our window. All the usual amenities were provided in the room and nothing was found wanting. The bathroom was very well designed with separation of the toilet from the shower stall. There is a door that doubles as the door to the toilet and between the bathroom and room – a clever design! There is also a ‘blue’ nightlight in the bathroom which you may wish to use if you so prefer. The location is ideal as there is a Food Lover’s Market store right opposite the entrance – a must visit. Do be aware of closing times, though (6pm during our recent stay). The air-conditioning was perfect as was the Wifi which performed admirably during the period of our stay. There were also international plug sockets (besides local ones) in the room, so plenty of options to charge your devices. The Breakfast spread was good and there is a large seating area although the breakfast area does tend to get busy if you arrive around 8am or so (breakfast is served at 6.30am). Although there is no restaurant in the hotel you will find menu cards of a couple of nearby restaurants in your room and you can order for food which will be delivered to the hotel reception. You can choose to pay by cash or card but be sure to inform the restaurant so that they can send the delivery along with a credit card machine. A great stay in an excellent location with very customer supportive staff. Read less

Arrived for our stay mid august with my wife,2 young boys and mother in law for 1 night. Upon parking outside the hotel the porters parked my car for me in the secure hotel car park and was given a receipt for my car so when i checked out i handed over the receipt and they collect my car for me. Checked in on the reception which was on the 1st floor and i have to say everything was very professional, clean and tidy and the staff well turned out, faultless. The rooms we were allocated were clean, well set out and and the room was still more than large enough with space even with a sofa bed as well as double bed in the room. Bathroom perfect and lovely shower. Slept very well,no issues at all. Breakfast in the morning was excellent, everything you'd expect and even more, cheeses,meats,all kinds of pastries various yogurts,fruit juices.Really good breakfast. Always kept clean and topped up and the staff visible and clearing tables. Checkout was quick,no problems and collecting my car from the porters was quick and professionally done. Very well done on all aspects. Would recommend without hesitation. Read less
