Stay frequently at the hotel for business and on occasion with family it is a fantastic home away from home. The restaurant facilities cater for all and the restaurant menu is great with a decent selection and the food is always great.

Stayed at the Elangeni for a two night business conference. Room was neat and clean. It appears to have been recently painted etc. Everything functioned, bed and linen was extremely comfortable. Would happily stay here again for a business trip. Had dinner at the grill restaurant downstairs and was very pleasantly surprised. Hosted about 10 persons and all were very pleased with the meal.
Breakfasts were good and had just about all options. Unfortunately, the Orange Juice was not freshly squeezed but a concentrate with water. Paid for parking on first night but the parking garage was full. Was redirected to overflow but used the Maharani parking.

Room Tip: Insist on Sea facing. Views of Durban Bay are fantastic, the higher you go.

The Maharani is actually world class, from reception all the way to the rooms and experience. Breakfast is amazing and the best part it is Halaal!!! The service was top class, the maître d remembered me every morning what excellent service. the staff and reception were truly friendly and even went out of their way to ensure we were surprised for our wedding night!!!

Thank you for taking the time to post your review and for your valuable feedback.

We serve a traditional English breakfast, which does consist of pork products, so our offering is not Halaal. We do practise pork separation in our kitchens and purchase all of our meat products from Halaal-certified suppliers.

I am delighted that you had a memorable stay and enjoyed your wedding night.

Congratulations on your wedding - we wish you many years of happiness.

Regards

Samantha

A regular haunt of the family. We just love the staff and the amenities. The beach and promenade opposite is world class. Lots of activities and loads to eat at. We return every year.
Breakfast is a wonderful buffet to cater for all. The Verve offers lovely tea and cakes or light meals. Their casual evening dining is warm and easy.

Stayed: December 2017

The bar fridge stood outside the cabinet because it did not fit. Usage of the bar fridge was an issue because the door kept dragging on the carpet. I was always impressed with cleanliness of Maharani but not on this trip. I saw tiny cockroaches which I thought was disgusting and my first impression was that standards had dropped.
