I stayed here for five days in June 2014. I had som trouble that made me have to find a new place to stay, and the staff where so helpful. They booked a new place for me, got me a taxi and i did not have to pay for the entire week i was supposed to stay there and all of tbis in less then 20 min. They helped me out in a very good way, and i will always be grateful. Thanks for a lovely stay. I will reccomend this place to everyone going to Durban. Kindly regards from Lina.
