              Room neighbour's kept smoking Marijuana in thier room and it flooded the corridor and our room for the entire night. Made it uncomfortable to sleep. Opening the balcony doors didn't help. Complained to front desk manager on duty (innocent) to request them to make use of the outdoor facilities . Next night, same thing occurred.

              After staying a so called for star hotel the previous week, I can confidently say that this accommodation far exceeded my exportations. The hotel was by far cleaner, better equipped, the staff far more friendlier and was a fraction of the price I paid for the previous so called 4 star hotel. Will most definitely be staying here every time I come up to Durban. I highly recommend the Town Lodge.

              The place was very clean and quiet. No unnecessary noise coming from the hallway etc. Very comfortable stay and the location is great for the price. Not far from Chartwell Dr and Umhlanga beach. There are also so many other things to do closer to the hotel.
