Close to The Promenade

We enjoyed our stay here. It is an older building but our unit was spacious and very clean. There was a restaurant with reasonable prices and a swimming pool area with adequate loungers and shaded area. There are two grocery stores within a five minute walk and several restaurants nearby. The wonderful Sea Promenade was only one block away and we felt safe walking to it during daylight hours. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Spectacular view of Moses Mabida

The hotel was exactly like I expected it to be. The pictures were the real sight of everything from the reception, to the rooms and to the pool. The ladies and gents working there were very friendly and helpful. We loved everything about the hotel. The breakfast we had on Friday was fresh and nice at a reasonable price. The living room had a nice view of Moses Mabida stadium, that was breath-taking. it was a home away from home. I would definitely return
