I found this hotel boutique to be very charming. The welcome was second to none. The lady at the reception went out of her way to provide me with a hair drier, as they had none available at the time of my request. The superbly decorated bedroom was huge - with two separate areas - the sleeping area and the reading and relaxing one with a window overlooking the main street. The next day Breakfast by the pool was just excellent.

My husband and I stayed for a one-week break at the Hotel Benjamin in January 2020, after attending professional activities in Johannesburg. Highlights of this hotel include: a great breakfast menu in a lovely indoor patio; a "period" decorated bedroom with modern conveniences, quiet and larger than most hotel rooms, with a king bed. It is on a lively street in a nice Durban neighborhood. There are good choices of restaurants from bar food to elegant table menus, safe to walk to at night. Each staff member warmly greeted us every day and provided good service in an unobtrusive style. The hotel has several equipped rooms for small and larger business meetings. I have always loved the style of this charming hotel and will return to it as often as possible. By the way, the hotel can recommend car and tour services. We appreciated Gary who showed us the beautiful updates to Durban since we had been there before.

I think a revamp/modernising of the rooms would go some way to making this establishment even better than it currently is. Additionally, adding limited room service would be useful as well, albeit there are plenty of food places around.

Love returning to the well run guesthouse. Had another stunning stay.
Central with helpful staff and excellent hospitality!
One piece of advice is to ask for a room on the inside of the property as Florida Road can be noisy at night.
