Reviewed 23 October 2013

We spent an excellent four nights here and had the most fantastic stay.

Our room was beautiful, exquisitely designed with some lovely touches and the beds were really comfortable too. The bathroom was fantastic, double basins, huge shower, free standing bath etc and really nice toiletries. Other thoughtful goodies in the room included a beach bag and towels, insect repellent etc. Although there's no tea & coffee facilities or mini bar in the room, there are two tea and coffee stations available to guests all day so you can help yourself throughout the day. There is also an honesty bar which we found to be very reasonably priced. The lounge area and terraces were really lovely, with views across the garden and beyond to the sea. There's good wifi throughout too. We didn't try the spa as it was already fully booked throughout our stay by the time we arrived - it isnt open in the evenings. If this is of interest to you, book in advance!

The large open windows in the breakfast room made it a great place to enjoy the fantastic breakfasts on offer every morning. Breakfast comprised fresh juices, absolutely gorgeous homemade museli, fruit and fresh baked bread and muffins amongst other things. Hot options were cooked freshly to order in the open kitchen and there were several different choices on each day of our stay, although I'm sure staff would have happily provided others if requested. There's no restaurant but there are plenty of options nearby.

In terms of location, its less than 5mins walk to the beach and the south end of the new promenade path. Its less than 15 mins walk to the village centre, although after dark we took advantage of the free transport provided by Teremok to and from the village each evening to eat.


All the staff we came across were excellent - friendly and helpful and did their utmost to make our stay the most enjoyable and relaxed possible. Thank you to everyone at the excellent Teremok and also to our fab travel agent Africa Rose for recommending it to us in the first place. We loved it and hope to make it back one day!

We really enjoyed our stay here in the amazingly decorated rooms. Our daughter felt like a princess in the Juliet room. Everyone was really friendly and helpful and it would have been nice to stay longer but we had a flight from Durban airport (a short drive away) the next day. The staff were particularly helpful in finding a nearby restaurant and driving us there and back and there's a great library of DVDs to borrow. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was lovely and a little more unusual with freshly prepared items that you don't get with the standard hotel buffet. The only improvement that could have been made for us would have been facilities in the room to make a cup of tea or coffee. You can go and get it downstairs or have it delivered to the room, but we would have preferred the privacy and convenience of making our own in the room.

The rooms are superb, the view over the ocean is beathe taking, the staff is very warm and welcoming, the breakfast is healthy and very nicely presented, this hotel is a wonderful experience and I can recommend it to any couple for a little holiday in Durban. There is a little shopping area close by with restaurants and bars and it is obviously very close to the ocean.
On the downside maybe the limited number of tv channels and a fairly poor reception, and no posibility to eat at the hotel. I've been there a few times and will come back for sure.

Teremok is the perfect place in Umhlanga. You are central, however, it is an oasis to slip away to, to enjoy the peace and quiet of a getaway. The staff are always so helpful and accommodating. This has been our holiday destination for the last 3 years when we come to KZN. Its like coming home to family each time we return.

Room Tip: We always choose Douglas suite. Its near the pool, has a patio and feels exceptionally private.

My fiance and I spent the last night of our 2 week holiday here. We'd had the most perfect holiday travelling around SA and completing the Two Oceans Marathon (where we got engaged at the end) in Cape Town. This just topped off the most incredible holiday. The guesthouse is situated about a 15 minute walk from Umhlanga centre where there are lots of bars, restaurants, lovely hotels and of course the beach. We walked to the centre during the day but would advise a taxi at night, there are plenty sitting around the centre of Umhlanga in the evening.

The guesthouse itself is absolutely beautiful. Each room is decorated completely differently, absolutely stunning and so much care and effort put into every detail. The room we had was huge with a lovely balcony and lovely free standing bath and gigantic separate shower. The breakfast the next morning was incredible with everything homemade and something to suit everyone.

All in all Teremok is probably a little more expensive than the average SA B&B but definitely well worth it.

Room Tip: We had a nose around some of the other vacant rooms the next morning and all looked just as beautifu...
