My wife and I took a night out from a busy life and a busy family. It was just what we needed - a haven that allowed us to breathe! We found the service friendly and very helpful. Our room was great and our view even better! While we didn't have dinner at their restaurant, our breakfast was top class....

Fabulous hotel with superb views. Ultra comfortable and modern with luxurious amenities. Best hotel south of Durban. World class. Spacious rooms and ample parking. Quite suburb and very peaceful and tranquil

I have been visiting the View on a fairly regular basis for the past three years. It is well located, (with a great view!) The rooms are great, well equipped and tastefully furnished. The staff are friendly and efficient. Giorgio's restaurant is beyond reproach with great food and an amazing wine list. The PROBLEM: No wi-fi other than an external...

We stayed at the View Boutique Hotel and Spa for 4 nights while visiting "Toti". The hotel is listed as a 5 star hotel, and while it is beautiful, I don't think that it is worthy of 5 stars. There was a distinct lack of attention to detail as I would expect from a 5 star hotel. The rooms were...

Wow! I took my wife for one night at the View Boutique to celebrate our anniversary. It was fantastic. The service was amazing, the room was incredible. The little touches and details made it all the more wonderful, that blew us away. It was such a treat. We felt lavished and like royalty. The food at Georgio's restaurant was world...

Lovely first class restaurant with excellent food, very good service with quiet restful atmosphere and surroundings - well worth a try if you like good quality food. Far from the madding crowds, the restaurant is set in a boutique hotel with lovely views.

This is a nice hotel, with great staff and good food. The rooms are spacious and well appointed as are the lounge areas. The restaurant is excellent and produces fine dining as well as pastas and pizzas from its wood fired oven. The hotel lives up to its name because it is on the side of a hill so there...

We got a connected room with other customer and you can hear everything from the next door. Especially when they are snoring at the night. The room is quite small. The breakfast was not that great. My fried sausage seemed to be off when I tasted. The service is horribly slow. We would not go back there again

I arrived after a long day and the super friendly service of the staff impressed me. There are not many 5 star options in the Durban area. If spacious rooms, modern fixtures, great views and good service are your requirements you will be satisfied at The View. At the end of the day the friendly service was the highlight for...

On a recent business trip to KZN, I was fortunate to be booked into The View Boutique Hotel. It felt like an oasis - so luxuriant and relaxing, and the staff were wonderful - nothing was too much trouble. There were lots of little things that made me feel really comfortable and welcome. And the view was spectacular. With a...
