    • Family with children

      Very close to load bars and no on site parking.

    • Single

      Its an awesome hotel and the service is quick and easy. Breakfast was good as well.

      Situation and parking is a nightmare

    • Single

      The staff was great abd the room was very much comfortable and I liked the view so much. I had a great stay

    • Couple

      It was pleasant,because me and my partner needed some queit time and that's what we got exactly and the staff were friendly couldn't ask for better service excellent keep it up

    • Family with children

      Staff are friendly and willing to help when I need something

      The family room are to small ,I think their need to separate the room

    • Single

      When I arrived, the hotel said there was no record of my booking, which was worrying, but they were able to give me a room anyway. There's a night club next door which could be noisy I guess if you're on the wrong side - fortunately I wasn'T. Albany Grove itself is a slightly seedy street but there's no need to go down it - Smith Street has more to offer anyway. Finally, the wifi internet has variable signal strength - mostly it works ok but sometimes not.

    • Group of friends

      It is real value for money, the rooms are small, but clean and have tv (Dstv) along with the friendly and helpful staff, not to mention the wonderful breakfast which is included in the price of the room. (Situated in the middle of everything) and glad they have secure parking, great relief especially been in the middle of Durban.

    • Older travelers

      An excellent value for money hotel which provided a comfortable and well seviced bedroom and an extensive buffet breakfast each morning. The staff were very hospitable and friendly. Secure car park 50 yards from the hotel.

      Location was about one kilometre from the sea and beach.

    • Couple

      The pricing, location and general comfort

      A bit of noise from other guests

    • Single

      The hotel is situated at the centre of the city and is very close to entertainment areas, including Playhouse, City Hall and Workshop. These areas are a walking distance. Good area for the studies as inside the rooms its so quite yet if you need some noise for entertainment, its just there at the hotel door step.

      Cannot relax just outside the hotel premises as it is too busy with people going and coming from the tarvern.

    • Family with children

      We had a professional and friendly reception. All our needs were seen to. It felt as if our needs and happiness were important to the staff. The treatment at breakfast were efficient and friendly. It was really value for money! Thank you to all involved.

    • Older travelers

      We were treated very well. The staff were professional, the hotel room was very inviting. I loved the room decor and an excellent breakfast, even though I am vegetarian, there was plenty for me to choose from. Excellent value for money. I would recommend the hotel to my friends.

    • Older travelers

      Your breakfast was good

      The hotel is a little bit old the room was a little bit uncomfotable

    • Family with children

      Mostly what they offer is worth the price you pay

      Inconsistency of staff service and waiting too long to answer phone

    • Older travelers

      We liked the hotel, well positioned and you get what you pay for

      There were no parking as said on the advert I did arrive at 15:00 and there were not place to parking
