    Nice

    convenient location (beach / ushaka / highways), simplicity of the hotel. its is my hotel of choice on business travel providing a good central location, causual relaxed business image followed by day time outdoors activities. good clean rooms. good hotel services.

    the staff at reception embarrassed me: i came on a holiday date with my girlfriend. selected the hotel because of the special promotional price you were running vs elangeni. 1) on arrival the reception wanting to up sell me communicating to my girl that i had booked the most basic room. 2) was then asked to pay for parking for my stay upfront, as it was a critical cost. 3) porters were slow to assist with bag so we decided to struggle along with our own bags. ....not cool. room 611 has a drip on the toilet, bothers me.

    The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We felt very welcome and regretted we were only staying one night (on the way to Hluhluwe Game Park). It's an easy 3-hour drive from that area of Durban north to the nature reserves.

    Hospitality

    Staff Incompetence. They overcharged me. I struggled to get my refund. Even today 10 January 2013 at 14h50 I am still waiting for my refund of R3900 -00. This is a lot of money considering the fact that it is January and schools are reopening.
