Widely considered to be one of the most elegant hotels on Durban's Golden Mile, The Balmoral offers luxury, comfort and convenience, with a whole lot of style. Located opposite North Beach, the venue for the renowned Gunston 500 surfing competition, and in the vicinity of the uShaka Marine World and Entertainment Promenade, the International Convention Center and the city's vibrant shopping and business district, The Balmoral is the perfect accommodation choice whether you are visiting Durban for business or pleasure, or a bit of both. When it comes to service, guests can rest assured that the hotel lives up to its claim that The Balmoral is the venue "where service is anything you want it to be".
While having been fully renovated, The Balmoral prides itself at having retained its historic and stately façade, making it stand out from the ordinary along this very popular and high-profile stretch of Durban beachfront. A feature of the hotel which makes the most of its prime location is the spacious Waterfront Terrace, leading out from the Waterfront Restaurant, providing the superb setting for sundowners – or any time of day. The Waterfront Restaurant caters for all tastes, serving up some of the finest cuisine in Durban. The fully licensed restaurant specializes in seafood and steak, as well as providing Halaal food.
The 95 rooms at The Balmoral are all elegantly decorated and are equipped with individual climate control, television with selected satellite channels, electronic door-locks, full en-suite bathroom amenities, built in electronic safe, internet access, tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryer, wake up call service and daily newspaper on request. Rooms have been designed to meet the varied requirements of guests and include smoking or non-smoking single, twin, double or family rooms as well as wheel-chair accessible rooms. Thirty-six of the rooms are sea-facing, allowing spectacular views of the Indian Ocean and the beachfront.
