                                        We were there for the Comrades marathon (down run), thus the location was perfect! The expo and stadium just a block away. With the closed roads we could walk everywhere with ease. This hotel obviously caters for business stays as the rooms typically holds only one robe, one pair of slipers, single sets of towels, etc. You'll have to ask reception for more.

                                        I think they were a bit understaffed for a fully booked weekend. Thus the service was not what you would expect from a 5* hotel. In my opinion they rate more to the ranks of a 4*. Their breakfasts are great, but for someone that doesn't eat a lot it could be very expensive.

                                        Ridiculous price of internet £17 for 24hrs is scandolous !!

                                        I was able to buy a blank cd at 8pm. And it was right next door to the conference (sa aids Conference)

                                        It took me a while to work out how to open the plug in the sink in my room.

                                        Very runner (Comrades Marathon) friendly - went out of their way.

                                        Everything worked properly - welcome, parking, reception also upgraded our booked room as there were no non smoking rooms available.

                                        The reception lady was extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel is conveniently placed from the convention centres and now provides free parking to guests upon check-in (you have to ask for it though).

                                        The wi-fi is extremely expensive and I'd expect free internet from a 5* hotel. Our room was only cleaned by 5pm on the one day - which was a bit late.

                                        Got 3 nights at this hotel for @ £61 a night, best value of any hotel I've stayed in as this was a 5 star luxury hotel. Buffet breakfast was included in the room price and was really good and you could pay for a buffet dinner at night which I would recommend as it was excellent. Staff could not have been more helpful and even let us have a late check out free of charge as well.

                                        Shortage of sunbeds at the pool, quite far from the airport and you get the impression it's a beach front hotel but it's a 10 mins walk away.

                                        This is now my third stay at this Hotel. I find the staff very pleasant and enjoy the personal service that is on offer. Some members of staff even remembered me from my last visit a year ago. Mind you that could be due to the lasting impression my amazing personality had on them! The hotel arranged a driver from and to the airport for me. Vincent the driver was most pleasant and made me feel right at home. A very positive impression of the hotel from start to finish! The room was very comfortable with a great view of the ocean. Breakfast is the best. You can find something to eat and enjoy, even if you are the most fussiest of eaters, like me. Very close to the Workshop Shopping Center and a taxi ride away from many other shopping locations. Taxis are affordable, so was my main source of travel around the city. Will sure stay there if I go to Durban again in the future! A credit to the Hilton Group!

                                        A little costly for the collection to and from the airport, (when compared to usual taxi cost of 350 Rand) but considering the service, was happy to pay the 450 Rand charge. Transport company, responded quickly to my emails and were very pleasant in their tone and manner!

                                        The hotel is wonderful. The service in all of the parts is excellent. All nights the staffs came tidy the room and leave it like it was the first night of arrival.

                                        The smell of the smoking rooms, needs to be refreshed on a regular basis
