Reviewed yesterday NEW

Excellent location to access Durban beachfront (the boardwalk and beach is right across the road) and most other major attractions like uShaka Marine World, Moses Mabhida Stadium, Sun Coast Entertainment Centre, city centre, etc. and excellent value for money! The room and breakfast was great and staff friendly :-)

I usually stay the Suncoast Towers and have once or twice stayed at the Elangeni, and never ventured south of that on the Durban beachfront. But I stayed at the Marine Parade Garden Court for a conference in early February and was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. It has obviously been refurbished and the common areas and rooms are modern,...

self service kiosk will be good for checking in and out. sitting capacity at the restaurant should be increase to avoid people waiting for a long time to get a sit and also and avoid giving one person to sit on a 4 table space.

Well as mentioned the aicon was not fully operational and this was a major issue, furthermore there was a leak in the bathroom. Due to these factors it was not a very pleasant stay due to lack of sleep.
