Most hotel restaurants aren't that great in my travel.... The food were often average but very pricey. But the Sugar Club is some exception in food choice, service and one of the very few places in Durban where they serve sorbet in between the courses to refresh the palate.

Attention to detail was not followed as the staff attending to me were not briefed on the requests I had made as part of my reservation. Ambience and food was delightful although the restaurant was not ready for opening at the time stated. Overall a pleasant experience however I would expect better for a place of this standing.

A quiet Sunday evening and the staff are friendly and accommodating to our needs. We enjoyed the steaks and had a great experience from early evening in the lounge with drinks first then moving into the dining area. Most enjoyable.
