If you are on a budget looking for clean rooms, clean baths with the convenience of the Gateway mall, then this is the place to stay. Best value for money & staff make you feel right at home. They have overflow parking at the mall with all other required facilities a walk away. When in Durban, I rarely need more than this & stay here often. Definitely recommended.

I stayed at this hotel many times and my most recent stay was in december. The hotel was full but i never felt it. The rooms have been completely modernised with new laminated flooring, large flat screen tvs, new decor, new lighting, new mirror. Even the carpets in the passafe have been changed. Only the bathrooms were not done which were ok anyway. Staff as good as always. My only gripe is that i was awarded 50% of my rewards points...and only after not receving any at all. But otherwise it remains my favourite budget hotel in durban.

A family of 5 in three rooms, putting the single person in a double and a couple in a single?! Two rooms didn’t get wifi and the router wasn’t working, air conditioning was poor. Other residents very noisy until about 4am, which as we were into on first floor and right by reception they move had heard but choose to do nothing about. Plus side was it does have a free underground car park with security and was close to shops and restaurants, the also kept our bags in storage and gave us a safe to use, but unfortunately I wouldn’t use this hotel again.

The room was a bit small but we did not mind as we only needed a bed to sleep. So it is very functional and cost effective. The amenities were not avialable - there was no shampoo to wash my hair. Service was however good and the staff were very friendly.
