“Definately a 5 * Guesthouse!!!”
Reviewed 1 March 2013

We travel a lot and I was really worried because some guesthouses / lodges advertise that they are a 5 star facility and when you get there it is only a 2 / 3 star and it doesn't look anything like the photo's. However at Ushaka Manor upon arrival we were greeted warmly by the staff. They made us feel at home right away and served us cocktails, while we completed a form for breakfast, wich had so many options we didn't know what to choose. The staff was very helpful and even recommended restaurants for that evening. Our rooms (Lion & Leopard) was clean, beautiful and very modern. Breakfast and service the next morning was excellent. Overall I would definately recommend Ushaka Manor to anybody and if we have to travel to Dbn again I won't even bother to search for any other accomodation. Thanks for a wonderful stay!!!

After a long flight from UK we were greeted warmly at the airport by Danita & Charmaine and this friendly personal service carried on throughout our 7 Night stay. The rooms were lovely, just as described, maid and laundry service were also first class. Breakfast again was excellent and very peaceful overlooking the pool and lush garden areas. Easy walk out to all Umshlanga Rocks restaurants, bars, ameneties and of course fabulous beach. We would definately book again with Ushaka Manor and look forward to returning to South Africa.

I cannot praise Ushaka enough, everything from the facilities to the location is excellent but where Ushaka excels is the level of service provided by Danita, Charmaine and Luca. Nothing is a problem and you are made to feel at home here. I have been fortunate with my work to travel around the world and stay in many hotels but the overall experince here is by far the best.
By all means go and stay in one of the 5 star hotels in Umhlanga Rocks but you'll be wasting your money. I would give Ushaka more than 5 stars if I could.

I moved from noisy Morningside to find a quiet place for a couple of nights. This was luxury at a good price, and within walking distance of the Umhlanga Rocks beachwalk and eateries. The lUmhlanga Laggon Reserve at the north end (just after the Breakers Resort) makes for a coastal forest walk onto the beach. Danita and Charmaine took good care of me; even the monkeys were (too) friendly, as a means to get closer to the jam. ´The Buffalo Suite was impeccable and for families this must be perfect with a safe pool and a kids play contraption. Easy to find and easy to go.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have a small sea views

I stayed for a week at Ushaka and found the service, location and room lovely. I don't really eat breakfast so I can't comment on the food, but there was a big selection. I found the monkeys that run sometimes sit on the balcony rails charming, it adds to the Africa feel. The place has great security and the owner and staff go out of their way to give a personal touch to the experience. 5 star amenities there would be little touches such as complimentary sherry in the rooms, luxury beds and linens, complimentary toiletries.

It's my fourth time at this guest house. The location is very good because it's closed to shops restaurant, promenade and the ocean. The staff for me is very familiar, always kind, helpful. The room I usually choose is Buffalo, it's a very big suite with all the comforts. The breakfast is served on a patio just close in the garden and closed to the swimming pool. They can offer a shuttle service for/from the airport with a limousine as well. The prices, in general are acceptable. I suggest this accomodation for business man and family too. You can enjoy the relax of the place, the fun of the beach and all the attractions nearby.
