"Excellent Facilities and Comfort, 100% recommended"
Business Trip, Room was absolutely beautiful and incredible big. The only down side (but not a deal breaker at all) was that the restaurant staff took quite a long time to take my order and serve the food. But they were very polite and friendly, so it's OK.
Everything else was absolutely perfect!! Recommended for business or pleasure!
I will be back!

I stayed here for one night jn the middle of May. Normally I tend to stay in the same accommodation during a stay in a city but when I decided to visit Durban as part of a South African trip I fancied a whole day in the Berea and the rest of my stay on the beach and the areas outside Durban. This property is an old colonial house split into spacious and beautifully appointed guest rooms. The owners have done well to maintain a colonial feel to the entire location and the guests have access to beautiful and relaxing sitting rooms and reading areas, a verandah style breakfast area, a compact and attractive pool area and on honesty bar set up like an old style English pub. Colonial style did not mean a lack of modern amenities and free wifi, flat screen TV and air con was available. Breakfast buffet was very good, with cooked breakfast prepared and brought to me. This really is a beautiful guest house with a very relaxing feel to it and a high level of creature comforts. There are lots of dining and drinking options nearby. Although somewhat removed from the centre of the city, this is no issue if you have your own transport or wish to use the cooler Berea as your base in Durban.

I stayed here for 2 nights, 20th and 21st May 2015. Was looking for a high quality beach hotel to treat myself. Certainly the Edward is handy for the beach, but to my eye a hotel in this category needs to keep it's room style a little more up to date as mine felt a little bit well, dated as opposed to a conscious colonial style which would actuall. Also there was a degree of inconsistency in terms of the quality of staff- all the doormen, security guards, the porters and some of the reception staff were excellent but a few working on reception and in the breakfast serving could have been more attentive and engaged more with the guests. I had a corner room which meant that I had only a "half sea view". In general I liked this hotel very much, and the rate I obtained was good value. The public areas of the hotel are definitely strong points. I ordered room service once during my stay. It was good food and arrived promptly. Breakfast buffet was reasonable, but there was nothing like the degree of choice or quality that I would have expected from a hotel in this category. WIFI worked reasonably well but dropped out on a few occasions. Reception staff gave me generous access to the business area two evenings on the trot. I would single out 2 individuals for praise- the security guard who insisted on providing me a personal escort to a nearby ATM (sorry for not spotting his name) and Johnny on porterage services for organising tours and advice and generally making sure I was okay.
