    I am sorry but I cannot give this place good ratings. Yes the rink itself is good and great fun to skate on but the area is dodgy, the location not very safe and the cleanliness and food and refreshments is disgusting. I would not eat there ever and it is sad because this is where the shows can happen if they just do something about the place. Give it a fresh coat of paint, have more parking available and have security guards in the street.

    The location and safety of the ice rink is not great, it is in a dodgy area of Durban. The ice is definitely well maintained but the building itself is very badly looked after. The inside of the ice rink is also very grubby and one does not feel very clean when leaving there. The refreshments are so highly priced that it is best to not even buy some, rather go out after your skating session for some good well priced food.
    It is a pity that they have so few ice shows at this ice rink as this will definitely broaden their popularity and maybe bring in some money for refurbishment and repairs.

    Durban Ice Rink is just awesome, I mean apart from eating out and going to the movies, this place is a whole load of fun. Had the pleasure of re-visiting over December holidays and as an old ice hockey player, my shine was like driving after 6 months of no driving. You don't lose it. The music they played was so cool and so vibey and I am surprised more of a fuss is not made over this place. It is good clean fun and laughter for all.

    I was rather disappointed in the upkeep of this ice-rink as it is the only one Durban has. The inside is dirty and the outside leaves a lot to be desired. The cost is quite expensive and the food is very mediocre and costly. It is a good sized rink so great for those who would love to practive their skating but I found it to be in a bad area and not very safe.
    Be warned, it is freezing in there if you are just going to be a spectator.

    Spent my childhood here, its been upgraded and is better than ever, perhaps my nostalgia speaks but there is no better family fun the ice rink, skates are kept in pretty good condition although i always recommending bringing your own if possible, good times and prices for most times during the day, staff are friendly and helpful, a bit dangerous as ice skating is but well worth the risk.

    Parking is a very big issue! We have lots of fun at the ice rink and always enjoy a skating session. The Ice Café provides lovely take-aways and I'm always satisfied.

    It was really great returning to the Durban Ice-Rink after a few years, It is clean and great fun although I ended up on the floor a few time, after 30mins on the ice it all came back to me just like riding a bike...... I found the staff to be friendly, and I really enjoyed the skating session, I recommend to all... go and have some fun...... Warning it is not the safest area in Durban..

    Definitely the best and only place to ice skate in the durban area, been going since i was a kid, its been newly renovated so its got a state of the art facility, its not in the safest area and so you just need to be careful but once inside you are super safe, as with ice skating you have a chance to injure yourself but its great fun for the whole family. If you can bring your own skate boots.
