The room was comfortable and well-presented. The guesthouse is in a quiet area, although there are some shops and cafes about 15 minutes walk away. Staff were helpful, and were able to arrange transport through a local taxi company.
"Clean, comfortable, welcoming and excellent food"
The hotel is situated in one of the more desirable areas of Durban just down the road from the Presidential Palace. The premises are secure, but it also has private security as an added measure.
The rooms are spacious and well furnished, the staff friendly and hospitable and the menu just excellent as is the food.
The head waiter, Jean Francois, is an excellent source of knowledge and advice to any tourist. His advice and general guidance was greatly appreciated over the following weeks of our stay.
This was the perfect start to our holiday in KZN and I highly recommended it to others. Needless to say, it is also excellent value for money.
Jean Francois appreciated real coffee and kindly obliged my request for fresh coffee to be brought to our room before breakfast.
Hilton 5 Star Hotel... Everything you would expect....easy check in check out... Needs a more reasonably priced wine list in the bars and restaurant ... By South African Standards. Need to offer free parking to residents.. Or at least a one off daily charge...
This hotel is new, clean, and modern. There is free parking. Nice restaurant and bar. Location is great, right across the street from the Gateway Mall. Only a five minute ride to the beaches; fifteen minutes to Durban. It is designed for short term, apartment type rentals, although they also accomodate daily stays. Only strange thing is that the elevators are located on the outside of the hotel, not in the lobby.

Excellent stay at the Sanchia Guesthouse. Staff are very welcoming and do everything that they can to make stay comfortable. The daily breakfast was amazing. Only thing that would have made stay better is if room had a phone and an iron. Otherwise definitely worth the price and great environment and beautiful ocean view.
This hotel is right on the beach, with beautiful views off the balconies. Both for the ocean and people watching. This was the cheapest hotel along the beach that looked decent, and it was better than decent. It was pretty good, and for the price it was excellent. There were renovations going on (which was stated at time of booking), but other than that everything was excellent. I paid for a room with breakfast, and the buffet was very good. I loved the waffles. And the staff loved my 10 month old son, which was nice.

It met our needs AND our expectations. The beds were fantastic, the view of the was gorgeous, the location couldn't have been better, the staff was overly quick to respond to our needs, the breakfast was phenomenal, and the size of the rooms were "just right!"
While the exterior of the building shows its age, the rooms were well equipped, and the lobby and restaurants were nicely decorated. Parking is secure, but a bit troublesome to get in and out of with a larger vehicle. Kobos (the porter) was a pleasure and truly went the extra mile to avail himself and ensure all our needs were met. The Front Desk staff was also helpful and cheerful.
Can't wait for another trip and stay at the BelAire
