          Nice hotel, good value and walking distance from numerous restaurants, shops and the beach! Highly recommended! Only criticism is the price of the drinks in the bar (hence very few patrons) and the cost for breakfast, reduce those costs and it's a winner!

          Too far. You would be much better staying in Durban proper. Thre are many good hotels and guest houses from beachfront up to Berea/Musgrave Road road area and uber is quick and easy for access if beyond walking distance.
