City Lodge Hotel Umhlanga Ridge
Ranked #12 of 18 Hotels in Umhlanga Rocks
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Great positioning opposite the Gateway Shopping Centre. Decent restaurant, and nice entrance foyer with professional staff. Rooms are neat, albeit a little tired. Stayed with a family in two adjoining rooms and found it suitable.

We stayed at this Hotel for two days from the 14th to 16th March 2014. City Lodge Umhlanga is a great value for money place to stay on the north coast of Natal: the staff are very service-orientated and extremely helpful and very pleasant. The rooms are large and comfortable and so is the bathroom.
Wonderfull service from the check-in clerk as well as the breakfast staff.
We were accomodated with our dietry requirements and hats off to the general manager for meeting our needs. Breakfast was good.
Shops and restaurants are on your doorstep and you dont have to drive to get to them. Highly recommended and will definitely return again. Well done City Lodge Umhlanga.

Room Tip: Rooms 201 and 203 overlooking Gateway or much quieter then room 202.

Comfortable, clean, conveniently located accommodation. A walk across the road to the Gateway shopping centre, where a variety of restaurants are available as well as loads of entertainment. Close enough to the beach, but not walking distance.

My wife and I have stayed twice at this hotel. The rooms are clean and relatively large. We like the rooms facing the Gateway mall with the balcony. The balconies are great for lazy days. The hotel is next to the Gateway mall and it's convenient for shopping and meals.

Has been staying at this hotel when on business trips to Durban. It is located close to the airport, across the way from Gateway shopping centre with great restaurants. Rooms are neat, not too small, breakfast is good, service and coffee is great

The hotel is located in an affluent neighbourhood of Durban. It is a safe area. You have a big shopping mall right across the hotel and many restaurants around. You can go to the seaside in the evenings and at nights for some other bars and restaurants.
The lobby and the restaurant are ideal. They provide continental breakfast and the service is good. I advise you to enjoy your breakfast in the garden. The rooms are clean and satisfactory.
