My stay was nice and comfortable, though the room was smelling of cigarette badly, the maintenance that was going on was very distracting. The room was nice and big for one. TV kept on disconnecting. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We looked forward to a nice visit at the Ritz but were so disappointed. The staff were friendly (especially Cathy) but unfortunately the management of the hotel let us down. First of all, the aircon didn't work and could not be fixed. Secondly, the room next to ours was occupied by a chainsmoker who left our room and clothes with...

Being two young students from Durban, we are fairly new to traveling. This hotel made us feel comfortable and welcomed at all times. We had constant service and access to all we required. A memorable experience indeed!
