Helpfulness of staff
Noise from people partying, till all hours at the outdoor restaurant. No lift or porters from basement to reception.
Breakfast buffet was too expensive
Everything about the hotel is fantastic
The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast buffet was delicious and great coffee too. The rooms had great views of the coastline. The bike hire available downstairs at the hotel was a great way to explore the local area
Nice and central. Great view.
Parking lot was a little dodgy.
Location and view.
There was a layer of dust all over when I first entered my room. No heating for cold nights and also no portable heater. Wifi non-existent. An iron should be provided. Only one small bottle of sparkling water. Reception staff behavior is needs a lot of improvement.
The restaurant next door was good the Grill Jichana.
On check in we were told breakfast was included for our stay so we had breakfast. At checkout they told us it was only included for one night of our two night stay and tried to charge for it. They said I should check everyday of a stay if breakfast is included - how ridiculous! Our first time in Durban we wanted some general information about the area, good restaurants, must see things but it was like the staff knew nothing about their city. Always lots of staff chatting around reception and not serving customers.
The view of the sea from my room window
The fact that you couldn't take doggybags to your room from the verve restaurant, No lift going to the first floor parking
The lunch and dinner food was excellent value; Staff responded very positively to any concern expressed;
Price of breakfast was outragiously high; No clear booking confirmation stating if breakfast was included in room rate, in fact it ended up being included on Saturday and Sunday but not week days. Do not think guests should pay for parking.
location on beach, great view of beach,convenient parking,sound of ocean from room , great food and service in maharani restaurant
The food was excellent. The view of the sea/ocean from the room was excellent
1.The mix up of the laundry. Our laundry was delivered elsewhere and instead we were given wrong clothing. We had to follow it up for two days before all our laundry was retrieved.2.We were made to pay for breakfast when we understood that our booking was inclusive, and breakfast was expensive
Staff super friendly, beach right infont of,
No balcony, no pool area, expensive, lack of bide in bathroom
We had a great experience here. We always do. Noma, the woman at reception, was exceptional. We are always amazed that even when this hotel is 120% to capacity, Noma treats you like you are the most important person in the hotel. Who wouldnt want to stay here just to feel this.
Parking space and parking garage access poor.
Fabulous views of the corniche and sea; comfortable rooms; nice staff; good location
Lobby toilets were not clean; Very limited wi-fi.
The hotel staff is friendly. Easy access to other amneties. Rooms are beatiful and neat. A great place to stay!
Limited parking space. The uncovered parking at the top.
The cleanliness, comfort , friendliness and the stunning view
The corner room a wee bit cramped
the location. The view of the ocean
noise. And doors banging.
Potter's service was excellent; he welcomed us warmly; ushered us to the reception; waited for us to check in and ensured our luggage was delivered safely to our respective rooms. The food was fresh, tasty in all the restaurants. The cleaning ladies were good. Room was tidy.
Noise along the passage throughout my three night stay, people kept knocking on our doors every 30 minutes; I reported to reception, both telephonically and physically went to report that there was lots of disturbance on 10th floor; they took down our room numbers but nothing was done for the remaining two nights as well. Very disappointed.
Good quality linen, very clean room and en-suite. Andrew on reception made us feel very welcome, made some good suggestions and gave good local advice.
Guests should not be charged for safe secure parking on site.
Cleanliness, Friendly staff, Good location
Restaurant closed (i.e we were refused entrance to the restaurant) an hour before stipulated closing time even though patrons were still in the restaurant on the evening. After our travel from Johannesburg, we had to leave the premises to find a place to eat at 9pm. At R5000 for 2 nights, one would atleast expect breakfast to be included.
