This hotel has a good location in town and it’s a quite safe area. The staffs were professional and willing to help. The room met the standards of holiday inn express. It’s a nice hotel for a short stay in Durban.

We enjoyed the clean environment and good service. The hotel is situated at a very nice position with the ocean in view. One of the highlights was the breakfast which was very good for a budget hotel. Thank you for the good service.

Hi. There are shuttles to and from the airport, which charge R50. The shuttles also go to the city centre and surrounding hotels - the cost is the same.
