The hotel has been renovated in year 2015 and it seems millions of ZAR spent on it to give it an impressive Indian culture look. It's matter of pride to have such Indian hotel in center of Durban with all facilities like typical Indian restaurant, casino, horse racing batting and gambling machine.
Though the Owner is very kind and full of dedication, its not him who run the business on day to day basis. This is what makes the experience worst for the guest like me who stayed there for almost 3 months !!
The housekeeping is poor as they don't change the towel and bed cover regularly, reception is poor, need to beg for milk/coffee as these are not topped up on daily basis, missing breakfast items, Poor response on any service request made, Long waiting time for food and almost an hour on weekend that stops you from eating there. Even not given a room as promised with a proper view.
Peoples working there are of soft and friendly nature and I am still trying to find out on what stops them from provide better hospitality ?
As there are many hotel staff meetings going on almost daily basis, they need to brainstorm on how to make the guest experience better with prompt and improved service. All the best and would like to see such Indian hotel growing in south africa.

The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and nicely decorated. The service however is very poor from arrival to check out. Ordered tea and toasted sandwiches in the Truro room and gave up after 45 minutes. Aircon batteries flat and tv channels not tuned in properly. What a pity as this hotel has lots of potential.

Stayed there few days as traveling to South Africa for my friend wedding.
Hotel was old with no proper renovation.
Had breakfast.. unfortunately very low quality food ….
Housekeeping was good as used to keep the room properly cleaned but at the same time was not changing the bed linen.
Overall not recommended.

To be honest, I would have not have even this dump a star, but the public needs to be aware of the absolutely disturbing stay my family and I had at Hotel Savera. Firstly, on arrival we were welcomed by the lack staff members who were completely computer illiterate, let me not even mention their hospitality towards guests at the the Hotel (however, they where enjoying the scenery of the drunk women performing outside). The staff members insisted that all the rooms where booked (with us booking and paying 2 month prior to our trip). With the request of a family room, we were given a room in which someone had slept in and had not been cleaned, stinking and in a disgusting state, and, their staff members insisting that we can "rough it out". We were then moved to another room which was tiny and not much of an improvement from the first. Only once we argued out booking were we all of a sudden given the family room that we asked fro, which to our surprise was not cleaned as well. Let me not get started on their torn towels, wet bedding and terrible service. There is so much could go on about but I hope that the next person does not make the same mistake we did by booking at this ABSOLUTE DUMP.

Booked and paid for our accommodation in February 2022 for a April 2022 function. When we arrived, there was no rooms available. The booking clerk messed up with our booking. We were offered a room that someone had just used. We wait to wait 2 hours for the room to be cleaned. This is not a place I would recommend.

Great potential but so poorly managed. Seems like the hotel is being used as a front for something much more.

Hotel Savera has a new section which is an Express Takeaway. Their staff is pathetic, the lady that served us was more interested in joining her boyfriend in the carpork. The Food that we ordered, they did not have, They presented us with a bunny (Pic attached), absolutely disgusting, I will not feed it to my dogs. Our waiting time for the disgusting bunny was 1 hour.

The revamped Savera hotel has a new touch of class which was really expected from times past, a great selection of Durban curries to choose from, either take away, pub style or sit down restaurant area to choose from.

Best part about the place, it captures the historical event of the arrivals of Indians into South Africa and particularly in Durban, the largest population of the Indian community out of India.

The walls of the restruarant depicts many artifacts of the ship logs and pictures of the arrival of the Indian some 150 year ago which tells an interesting story.

Having never stayed at Hotel Savera (I don't think I ever will given the location, the tote, etc.) we do frequent the restaurant for a few beers and a meal. The popular mutton bunny is a winner, one of my favourite in KZN. The service is sharp too! I'm not convinced by the hotel but the conference facilities, bar and restaurant are winners.

Last September my family of six +a Kiwi mate visited SA and stayed at the Savera. We had an awesome time. The manager - Tony and the maid Nellie worked hard to get things right for us. It was like a home away from home. The little inconveniences did not take away from a lovey stay. I will return when I re-visit SA.

Absolutely pathetic service.
A family member booked for 2 nights.
Breakfast was not ready on time. Aircon and television was not working in room. Belongings were moved to another room without notifying the guest.
When these issues were taken up to management, the CEO was very rude and abrupt. I am still awaiting the owners call.
I will never recommend this hotel to anyone - disgusting and pathetic service.
