“Our favourite place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2013

We live in La Lucia so the Beverly Hills is a nearby getaway. It is our favourite spot to escape to, so much so that my fiancé and I (whom I met at a dinner there) have a "sun-downers date" at least once a month at the BH. The cocktails are delicious and there a re a variety of options, the view is amazing, the ambiance, décor and background music really does transport one into a relaxing and blissful place. The service is priceless and we always feel so welcomed and comfortable. The maître d' of the sugar club even came across to us in the lounge to offer something for my fiancé to put his leg on (he is in a moonboot). We met the GM and he is a lovely and very professional gentleman. Definitely our favourite place! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your establishment.

There is something extra special about the Beverly Hills Hotel in Umhlanga Rocks. Although not everything is perfect, there is always a staff member / manager on hand to rectify the problem immediately. The location is unbeatable with service to match. The rooms are also well appointed and have exceptionally comfortable beds. The worst thing about the Beverly Hills hotel is having to leave.

Room Tip: Specify bath or shower.

the very best Beach Hotel in South Africa, FIVE STAR experience. Service unparalleled. John the General manager is like a superb father figure to his incredibly gifted Staff. Nothing is too much Trouble. they carried our deck chairs to the BEACH!, then brought us Ice Lollies when we were just craving one. then lunch delivered was on offer. the kids wolfed them down in a heartbeat. the rooms are magnificent, well laide out with everything though of. from the Charlotte Rhys bath cosmetics to the in house entertainment, one could not wish for anything here.
I have spent my life in this industry, and love it to bits, but nothing could have prepared me for this incredible welcome. I cannot say enough about John the general manager HEnry in the dining room for breakfast where nothing was too tall and Order, Dennis as well, then Bheki at the Pool, Claude the activities front of house manager was exceptional, he is from the congo and he is just superb!
a superb TEAM! PLEASE DONT GO ANYWHERE ELSE, its SOOO Child Friendly as well as relaxed for honeymooners and couples alike. its for everyone, and a real treat to stay! 6 Stars from me!
OH and the Inhouse dining SUPERB! best Chicke the children have ever eaten and we have travelled everywhere!

Room Tip: choose Room 809 it has the best view of the lighthouse and is a suite, stunning!!

We had a restful 4 days on the pensioners special. Seaview room, and dinner included. Service was good. Breakfast lovely on the verandah overlooking the sea. We did not have to take the car out everything is close enough to walk to. Including restaurants. Private entrance to the walkway and beach.

I spent 4 nights at this hotel in Feb 2013 and stayed as a business traveller. I would have no hesitation in bringing my family to this hotel. It had some very nice business facilities and they cater for business functions well.

It has a very clean and large pool on the beach-front.

The hotel is very clean and the rooms are bed and breakfast style (more classy than modern).

The hotel has free WiFi which is a plus. The hotels bars are very nice for an evening nightcap and the lights on the ocean and the waterfront and very pretty.

It is right on the beach-front, so very easy to take a morning walk on the beach-front walking track. There is an ok wave to surf about 500 meters walk north of the hotel.

The area is very safe and you have no issues walking around at night plus there are a couple of great restaurants nearby. If you are coming from Australia you will be surprised how cheap food and wine is in Durban

Durban was entry into South Africa during this visit and I couldnt have chosen a better hotel than Beverly Hils in Umhlanga. The view from the rooms overlooking the sea is breathtaking. Breakfast buffet is average but it is more than made up by the genuine hospitality of the staff at the front office and restaurants. Mr. John de Canha, the General Manager of the hotel is always at hand to welcome guests and see them off. This is a hotel I will come back again and again and again.
