Amazing and helpful staff! Excellent and fresh breakfast. The rooms are very clean. The hotel located not far from the beach. Feels like home! The rooms have nice and large balcony, but I wish it was with sea view....

Exelent service, friendly staf. Good and compleet breakfast. A lodge like home. Very nice decorated. Go and look for yourself. You want disappoint. Only one minus point in which they unfortunately can't do anything about. In front of the lodge they build very huge buildings like hotels and apartments. This disturbing enormously the beautiful view on the beaches.

Very nice property very close to the beach with great service. Sadly our stay was very brief. Would stay again when in the Durban area. Was a very brief walk to the town with many restaurants and shops.

Well situated. Excellent service. Unfortunately there is too much development in the area. Formerly we could see the sea from the balcony and this was very relaxing. I will nevertheless recommend the place to friends and relatives due to its proximity to the town centre and to Gateway..

Wonderful staff. Great location. Our room was clean and well-sized, with a lovely outside area. Everything we needed for a weekend visit to Umhlanga. We would definitely recommend Flamingo Lodge to our family and friends.

The staff were friendly and the rooms was clean, neat and had everything we needed - including home made biscuits which were delicious! It was a little walk to the beach so we got all our exercise in as well for the weekend!

That's the place to be. It is very quiet, no traffic as it is found in a cul de sac. The restaurants are all in walking distance and the cuisine fine there. Nothing to complain about, all perfect. The owners and staff very helpful and friendly.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Flamingo Lodge is a 4 Star establishment situated in the heart of Umhlanga Rocks and is closest of all the Guest Lodges (200 Meters) to the main "Blue Flag" bathing beach and the Beach Front Promenade. The Promenade is ideal for those people who like to walk or jog and is about 4 kilometers long, with spectacular scenery, open air restaurants and the occasional sighting of dolphins or whales. Umhlanga Rocks is situated some 10 minutes from the new King Shaka International Airport, and just 12 kilometers north of downtown Durban. Very close to the famous Gateway Shopping Centre and surrounded by world class Golf Clubs. Park your vehicle in our safe car park and you are within a 2 minute walk to the beaches and to the various first class restaurants and shopping facilities that the Village has to offer. Each of the eight tastefully decorated bedrooms all has their own en suite bathrooms/showers, as well as their own private patios. All rooms are equipped with Satellite Television, Safes, Tea/Coffee making facilities and individually controlled Air-Cons. and Fans. One of the rooms is a self catering apartment consisting of a double room with ensuite bathroom (with a bath and a separate shower) a separate television lounge which has a sleeper couch, kitchenette and dining area. The whole Lodge is an "Internet Hot Spot" so people with their own wireless computers enjoy free internet facilities. The Lodge provides for its guests an Honesty Bar as well as an Internet Cafe, where guests can down load their digital pictures on to Disc. A Full English Breakfast is served outside on our balcony, with great views of the sea. We have an arrangement where a few Village restaurants offer a discount to our guests. We have several world class golf resorts within a 10 kilometer drive. Dolphin viewing, Deep-Sea Diving and Fishing Safaris all start from "Grannies Pool" which is just in front of us on the beach.
