The service was excellent. Location is perfect. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Parking is convenient at a small price. More Irons and boards could be added to hotel inventory because sometimes it took a while to receive them and is problematic especially if you have a morning function to attend.

Great hotel location, poor front service desk experience. Clean rooms with great sea view. Value for money is excellent. Would recommend for a holiday during South African winter or autumn for people outside of KZN

The stay at the hotel was fabulous, the buffet breakfast was to die for, the sea facing room was stunning, but the minibar fridge was not cold enough and its small. But besides that the stay was WONDERFUL...

Just remember to keep tabs with other Garden Courts, so you'll be able remind your guests with regards to different offering and facilities. Since the establishment is in front of the beach, it will be great if there could be a sign in the dining area that indicates that shoes are compulsory.
