BON Hotels have extended their South African footprint into Kwazulu Natal with the takeover of the well-known 64 on Gordon Hotel. The 35 – roomed boutique hotel, which is located in the rejuvenated Morningside suburb of Durban, will be flying the BON Hotels flag as of 1 June 2018.
Situated close to the hub of Florida Road, which has seen a recent revival, a 2 – minute drive from the 3 major sports stadiums, close to the Durban Golden Mile, popular beaches and 10 minutes from the Durban International Convention Centre. The full service hotel lends itself to a lively trade from all market segments. Facilities and services include a restaurant, bar and business facilities. The hotel also offers a conference venue that can accommodate up to 30 delegates.
Guy Stehlik, CEO of BON Hotels, says that the property is a well-timed deal, adding value to the group’s offering, via their BONami loyalty program, as well as adding a KZN option for their corporate, government and leisure guests. “This is a very exciting addition to our family,” says Stehlik. “Durban – especially the Morningside area – has an incredible vibe and character.”
“Our aim is to up the ante on the already established ‘boutique style’ service the hotel offers. We will boost the already dynamic team up to our BON minimum standards and appoint a sales executive to promote the hotel to our corporate, PCO, leisure, international and government clientele.”
