My go to when in Durban”

We always book here when we’re in Durban (hubby and I) as the location is perfect. The hotel is always clean and we feel safe there - even if we go out at night and happen to return later than usual. The restaurants on the premises are ideal. The rooms are clean and neat and not to mention quite affordable.
