“Great "stay over"”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Lovely views. Very close to the airport and Umhlanga. Far enough from the busy city. Clean and spacious rooms. Friendly staff. Breakfast can be better, but breakfast is just breakfast. Nice cosy casino. I will make this a must stop-over everytime I go to Natal.

Room Tip: Seaview rooms are always the best!

Reviewed 21 February 2012

Stayed at the lodge for 2 nights, good, clean accomodation, for a quick weekend in Durbs. Casino not over crowded and enjoyable. A bit of a drive to central Durban but if you looking for some peace and quite time this will be the place!! restaurants are clean and having a choice of food is great when you have children with. Absolutely convenient to the airport!
Staff are friendly and give you the service you need. A must when you in Durban!

Room Tip: stayed in the lodge so not sure of the other rooms, maybe better at the Hotel side near the casino.

This hotel is magnificent. The rooms are large and amazing. We had to ajoining rooms and it was like being in a house. The food in the hotel was awesome. THe food in the casino restaurants is pretty good too. The seafood restaurant has great great seafood platters if you don't mind waiting a bit. The casino is pretty cool too. A must if you are staying close to Durban!

Room 2024

This hotel is isolated, on a hill overlooking Durban and as such has magnificent 360 degree views. It is visible for miles around and stands in beautiful grounds with a large Koi Carp pool.

Good sized bedroom and large bathroom which would benefit from a refurb. The shower tray is grubby and needs replacing.

Two queen sized beds with nice linen and good quality towels in bathroom. The room has a large patio window which faces the casino and a side view of the sea.

The hotel lobby is very pleasant with seating and a beautiful flower display. The restaurant which only serves breakfast is on the lower level of the lobby and faces the pool and sea, most enjoyable with the huge floor to ceiling windows open and the breeze wafting in.

Dinner can be taken buffet style in the adjoining casino and offered a varied choice to suit most tastes. I cannot comment on the price as it was included in our stay.

The staff were all very nice and waiting staff at breakfast very attentive.
