    Our overall stay was great. The room tends to be quite small once you use the sleeper couch. Breakfast was great except having to wait for beacon to be made and bits and pieces for our table. Staff is great always willing to help :)

    The customer service is great as the staff go the extra mile to make you feel at home. Breakfast buffet is good but wouldnt recommend the dinner. Room is pricey in comparison to 4-star hotels in the same area.

    I would highly recommend this hotel in Umhlanga. We received the most fantastic service and the breakfast buffet was out of this world. We travelled USA in 2016 and I can proudly say that your hotel has made us proud for a South African hotel....More
