Had the pleasure of visiting Umhlanga this past weekend as my daughter was swimming Midmar. The hotel was perfect. We found it clean and beautifully maintained. The staff were attentive and accommodating to our requests and breakfast was awesome. The hotel is well positioned a short drive to the main beach in Umhlanga as well as just behind the Gateway...

the staff at the breakfast hall was not friendly, not helpful at all I suggest they are given training on how to treat people at breakfast and they are very tired they don't even clean the tables. I suggest they must learn about the service from other hotel such as (Erlangen) where I normally stay if I am in Durban...

This hotel is in a great location for business and pleasure. The staff is well trained and very professional as well as helpful. The rooms are very well designed with their entrances away from the passage which reduces any noises from the hallway. All the facilities that the hotel has to offer is fantastic and caters to all your needs....

the hotel looked a little tired and was in need of some repair. For the amount paid I did expect a little more for the money spent. Not close to the beach. No view from the room. There are other options available for the same price.

Check-in was a quick, painless exercise with 2 kids after a long trip it was wonderful. We arrived a little early but our room was ready. Staff are friendly and willing to assist in any way possible to make ur stay comfortable. It was wonderful to come back to a clean and tidy room every morning after breakfast.

Constant deactivation of access keys is an inconvenience. Fridge is way too small. Please provide a microwave, iron and ironing board in each room instead of calling for it daily. at times plates are not properly cleaned.
