Where to Stay with no car??


any suggestions on what area to stay at for walking distance to restaurants/bars etc. Seen a couple of places but not sure where to aim for so that it's convenient.

Any help appreciated.

The Umhlanga beachfront hotels would be The Southern Sun hotels, Oyster Box, Breakers (a little further walk to restaurants). Otherwise the new Coastlands hotel on The Ridge near Gateway Theatre of Shopping (lots of places to eat at there) or Holiday Inn Umhlanga on the Ridge ( a little further from Gateway). www.kimssouthafrica.blogspot.com

I would suggest anywhere on Lagoon Dr. (parallel to the beach) - the Breakers is at the end of the road and probably a 15 minute walk to the main bars, restaurants, etc There is a beautiful promenade that makes this walk enjoyable in the day time and on nice evenings.

Only a 5 min taxi up to Gateway if you'd like to shop.

Any hotel near Gateway will be right by lots of restaurants and they are in lots of price ranges. there is the Protea hotel, City lodge, Road lodge, Holiday inn, Royal palm and Gateway hotel.

They are about a minute walk to gateway.

Gateway is a huge shopping center and you will be able to get anything you want.

The Coastlands Umhlanga Hotel should suffice, the hotel boasts the acclaimed Saffron Restaurant and the Vinilla Bar inhouse. And has a range of banqueting and conferenceing facilities. It is quite close to the beach and Gateway Theatre of Shopping and has easy access to all amenities within Uhlanga and Durban.

The hotel is conveniently located close to a public transport route so you could easily take a cab or taxi to get around Durban.
