  Lovely hotel
(Germany)   anonymous 07 August 2014
The hotel is very nice. The breakfast is very good/tasty. Both continental and English breakfast is available. The land lady is extremely nice and very helpful. The hotel is close to Howard College in a quiet area (Glenwood). However, supermarkets and restaurants are not far away. I will definitely go back to this hotel if I come back to Durban. I can recommend this hotel to everyone.
