Reviewed 30 December 2013

We had a problem with tight parking every day. It was a frustrating task getting in and out of the Lodge. Security is a joke. Their guards were shockingly rude and aggressive. Compaints to the Management of Laletsa and their Security Company was fruitless. I would NEVER stay at Laletsa again. Who wants to stay at a place where you must be afraid of and not trust the security on duty, especially when you have young kids staying with you.

We stayed for two nights at the Laletsa Lodge B&B in the Berea section of Durban while on a business trip during the Durban July race weekend. My room was comfortable, in a basic African motif. The bed was clean and comfortable, and property was relatively well kept. Basic television service was provided. The breakfast buffet was average, with eggs cooked to order as well as cereals, yoghurts, fruit, breakfast meats etc.

The property is composed of 4 building connected by stone walkways and steps, with several pools. The only fully accessible rooms were in the reception building, and even then, one would have to navigate 5-6 stone steps to get to the breakfast room.

The desk staff was helpful in arranging dinner reservations and a cab to the Ushaka Marine world. The lodge parking was rather tight due to their location on a very steep hill, and the security gates needed to be opened for admittance.

The Lodge was fully booked because of it being the Durban July race weekend, which made our experience less than great. There were many university students staying there who were heavily into partying. This made it very noisy in most of the property. The staff did not seem to take any responsibility for encouraging consideration of other guests.

Room Tip: Best to ask for Rooms 1-6 nearest the reception desk to avoid noise in other buildings. It also avoi...
