      Accessubility from Durban when you do not have transport.

      I did not like the noise made by occupants upstairs walking on the wooden flooring when you are on th gfirst floor. It woke me up earlier than I planned

      quick overnight stay. loved antique furnishings. staff - friendly, polite,efficient. we went on maintenance day, but still very impressed.

      all perfect

      The location is quite good - despite the fact that while I was there, there was a lot of pre-World Cup works going on outside the hotel.

      I wish I'd taken more notice of previous bad reports of the Balmoral. I travel often for work and so stay in many hotels but I've seldom come across such a bad place with many rude and incompetent staff. The water in the bathroom runs brown, the internet doesn't work, the heated breakfast is cold, the parking area is small and so you aren't guaranteed to park onsite (despite paying extra for it) and did I mention the rude staff....?!? I certainly won't go back to the Balmoral on my next visit to Durban.

      Leaving it it was not so much the hotel as its location and Durban is unsafe for Habitation

      The food was terrible

      Great location, great views.

      Wireless Internet never worked anywhere in the hotel. It was a big set back for me! I was counting on it to do work from my computer and just couldn'T. My feeling was that it never works, it seems that it is something that they advertise, they even give yoou a password, but it seems it being out f work is just a fait acomplit!They would let me use an internet access to check email, but this was inside the private office of the hotel reception there wasn't even a space and a computer for the guests. Unacceptable!

      Its a antique hotel.ask for a corner room they are bigger.

      There Is limited parking. We paid 40 rand a night and there was only like 10 spaces available. We than had to park at a parking lot down the road which the hotel does settle on your behalf at 25 rand.therefore cheaper to not take parking from hotel and park in parking lot.

      The room was very neat and spacious,and the view was excellent,staff very helpful and friendly.

      The breakfeast menu was very limited.more items should be added to the menu.

      My first night. No coke zero, no still mineral water. The next morning, had to call twice for a iron. Waited more than an hour. Still no mineral water.The next day, still no mineral water. Or coke zero. At the dinner table I ordered a bottle of nederburg rose. Guess what? No nederburg rose!!! And so I can continue! The pathetic excuse from a mr Jivaa was that its Easter weekend and they ran out of stock ! out of stock on the beginning of Easter weekend? Now for the best. They dont keep planty stock of wine because its actualy a Muslim hotel!!! Mr Jivaa I might be Afrikaans and you might think you can bulshit other people , but that is a slap in the face of Muslimhism. If so were the little bowl to wash hands? Where the compartments to cover a table were a woman have to open her face to eat? Ext.......4 Star hotel? Not even 1star

      If you have to be in the city centre of Durban, then this hotel is an ideal choice. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms (with a sea-view) are spacious and elegant. There is a splenid terrace overlooking the beach and Marine Parade. The only drawback is the air of seedy dereliction that characterises the downtown CBD, and begins one or two blocks back from the coast.

      the location was perfect for the needs that we had - the facilities could have been better though.

      Not really - but the facilities could be better
