Very proud to market this gem of a venue,

The Concierge and Freedom Café have won The Award for Excellence in the 2011/12 Corobrik-SAIA Awards.
The 12 roomed boutique hotel just off Durban's lively Florida Road, was one of only 8 South African projects chosen from the 55 put forward. The Award for Excellence is awarded for an exceptional achievement in the field of architecture and design.

The hotel and cafe are tucked behind the gritty commercial zone of Umgeni Road in Durban and were developed from a series of derelict Victorian workers’ cottages from the late 1800s with the vision and combined local talent of Neil Roake, Don Alberts Architects, Architecture Fabriek and Egg Designs.

Here’s what the judges had to say, but don’t just take their word for it … go and see for yourself

“The space generated through this interpretation of refurbishment, combined with flawless construction, makes this development a spectacle to be experienced and enjoyed"
