                          An historical building, with comfortable beds. A hearty English breakfast was had in the morning.

                          An excellent hotel. of course not a five star tourist place but a wonderful basic nice country hotel One of a few that survived. I like it.

                          The stay was lovely and we will revisit this establishment again. The George Hotel was fully equipped and very clean.

                          I was treated like a King at this Hotel so there is no doubt in my mind that I would return when I go to Durban again. I had such a good stay!

                          I found the Hotel quite pricey considering there was no breakfast included.  The rooms were fine, comfortable beds but no kettle, tea or coffee in the rooms.  When we enquired as to where we could get a cup we were told only when the kitchen opens for dinner or in the morning.  That's unacceptable, they could at least have an urn with mugs and tea bags, coffee, milk and sugar available anytime for guest.Don't think I will be staying there again, even though the staff were very polite.  Hopefully when they read this something will be done.
