Best hotel for family, I like their homely relaxed environment, their breakfast is the best. It is next to all entertainment facilities for kids and adults. You take the people mover bus and tour the beautiful city of Durban.

Well I was very impressed with the overall stay and welcome and how they really helped make my son's 15th birthday special. Only issue I experienced was the food was abit too spicy and not really a full proper buffet options, but on a whole it was awesome, thank you

Rooms a bit smaller than I expected especially from the pictures advertised on the website. Service from the front desk, cleaning and information and shuttle services great though, the breakfast is good.
