Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great hotel location, poor front service desk experience. Clean rooms with great sea view. Value for money is excellent. Would recommend for a holiday during South African winter or autumn for people outside of KZN

The stay at the hotel was fabulous, the buffet breakfast was to die for, the sea facing room was stunning, but the minibar fridge was not cold enough and its small. But besides that the stay was WONDERFUL...

Just remember to keep tabs with other Garden Courts, so you'll be able remind your guests with regards to different offering and facilities. Since the establishment is in front of the beach, it will be great if there could be a sign in the dining area that indicates that shoes are compulsory.

It was a pleasant stay and the hotwl is beautiful and comfortable. The staff members are friendly and very helpful. Especially Price who went above and beyond to sort out a minor maintenance issue for us.

The beach over the road, Ushaka Marine World just a short trip away, restaurants and coffee shops in easy walking distance made the stay memorable. The staff were attentive to our needs...
