Positive Reviews

Courteous service from staff

Most former guests had a positive experience when it came to interacting with the hotel's staff members. The front desk personnel in particular were highlighted for their purportedly helpful and courteous nature.

Free Wi-Fi and parking

Whilst it is simple in general, the accommodation does supply two beneficial facilities for free: on-site parking and Wi-Fi. Getting parked was typically not an issue, while the wireless Internet has scored positive marks from the majority of those that utilised the service.

Commendable hygiene levels

In terms of cleanliness, this aspect was often admired by previous guests that stayed at the hotel. This was especially true for the rooms, which were usually considered really fresh and well-maintained overall.

Negative Reviews

Basic rooms in need of revamping

The quality of the rooms was often criticised by past visitors that stayed at the accommodation. From the reportedly small televisions with limited channels to the outdated furnishings, the rooms have been described as outdated and overly basic.

Location not the best

Although it is centrally positioned, former guests have noted that the hotel is not within reasonable walking distance of major attractions such as uShaka Marine World and Moses Mabhida Stadium. Furthermore, it was said to be in a somewhat noisy area.

Small, no-thrills option

If you are in search of a luxury option that features a variety of amenities, this accommodation is not a suitable option – an opinion shared by previous visitors. It has been pointed out that the property does not have a dedicated restaurant or recreational spaces.
