If rest and relaxation is what you are looking for,this is not where you will find it. Checking into the hotel,myself and my colleges where informed that the hotel would be hosting a Jazz-function. The receptionist however neglected to add that blaring music and bass-drums would ego through the hotel till 3 o'clock in the morning. With no answer on the telephone I made my way to the reception to find it abandoned,and to make things worse,the front door was locked with a cable and lock which made it impossible for any guest to leave in case of a emergency.Absolutely unecceptable.This place will never see me again.Please be warned!

While the suburb of the location is OK, the hotel itself is dinghy and unappealing. A booking I made that was confirmed with the receptionist the day before was mysteriously cancelled by the hotel itself when I arrived at the hotel. They did however have rooms available but there were no linen or towels available and none expected to come in until the next day. Not worth even trying this place.

All the bad reviews about this place are true and no exaggeration. It seems this old block of flats was converted into a hotel many years ago and since then the facility has aged and seems neglected. Rooms are outdated, old furniture smelly carpets and virtually non-existent housekeeping. I even found someone else’s shoe under the bed - tells you about the cleaning. There is no breakfast menu - only one option people who looked like hotel staff walking out of the restaurant kitchen in their pj’s. The TV was fuzzy and not all channels work. Sad excuse for a bath/shower made it impossible not to flood the bathroom - oh, and the final touch...cockroaches...everywhere!

The hotel is actually a residential block converted into hotel rooms with very poor infrastructure and dated furnishings. Hotel room was not ready until 19h30 due to laundry issues. This place is a far cry from what you expect of a hotel. Noise from street and hotel guests ensures a restless night. Staff are not equipped to deal with the hotels shortcomings. Will not repeat visit.

I just wanted a nice bed and a shower before Comrades (an 87km ultramarathon ), but the hotel failed to provide towels. Apparently they had issues with the laundry, but they had hours to find a solution, they could have just bought some cheap towels from the supermarket, knstead we just got lousy excuses. Absolutely unacceptable.

We booked into this hotel as it was among the few available on a very busy week in Durban. It is not well maintained, checking in was a nightmare, walking into the rooms you are greeted by a stench of urine and cigarette smoke. The room was so dirty that I literally got sick from all the dust. Although I did complain about the dirt, nothing was done. It's a shame because it wouldn't be so bad if they were serious about this business. Some rooms are better than others there's no consistency in maintaining a quality standard. Never and never and never again.

My overall experience was a poor one. Defiantly not a 3 star hotel !!!

1st problem: Price difference from the one on trip advisor for the exact same room.
2nd problem: We had no towels in our room and when we asked for them they only gave us the next afternoon.
3rd: We booked a room for 2 and paid up front as asked, Yet despite asking only one glass and one mug were in the room and hotel suggested one drink coffee in a cup and the other in the glass!
4th: the elevator, its ancient and half of the numbers on the floors for the elevator are missing, I have no problem with an old elevator, I do however mind a poorly maintained one.
5th the shower had no rails or any racks to place soap on, we had to place them on the floor.
6th we had to leave our key with reception so that they could clean the rooms, as they have no spare keys!!! We were out till late and were often asked why were only coming to pick up the key this late, (unprofessional in my opinion)
7th the gate is opened by security guards manually and when it drizzled, we had to wait 15 minutes in the dodgy alley for the security guard to get an umbrella so that she could open the gate for us. (again I don't mind the manual gate or the fact that it looked run down, I mind that we had to stand in the rain, while the security guard was looking for the umbrella)

My intentions are for the hotel to make drastic changes and for individuals of trip advisor to get true reflection of the hotel.

Best wishes
Very unhappy customer and dissatisfied guest.
