We needed a place to stay, close to the airport and this fitted the bill. We were greeted promptly on our arrival and were soon in our rooms, just what wew needed after a long flight. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a lovely deck overlooking the sea. Breakfast the following morning was excellent, with a wide choice of... More

This was my 4th or 5th stay at Fairlight and it's always lovely. The view is stunning, breakfasts is delicious and the service is friendly. The Kevin room, designated a triple, was smaller than what I would consider a double room. If I go again, I'll choose the Candace room instead.

We stayed here during our trip through ZA. Umdloti is a nice breach location, close to Durban airport. The hotel is very quiet, the rooms are huge, good restaurants are in walking distance. The owners and staff were very friendly. We can recommend that place.

The room and location were outstanding, with a great view of the Indian Ocean just across the street. The hosts were very gracious and accommodating, arranging transportation from the airport to the hotel for us. The hot breakfast was very good and a great way to start the day. My only regret was that I didn't stay there longer!

It was delicious when it arrived and the staff where... More

In July 2014 we had a wonderful stay at this hotel. When we arrived at the hotel we got a free upgrade from Beulah. The upgraded room has a wonderful and beautiful view of the Indian ocean. It has all the things you need (cable tv, wifi and a fridge). Also a private entrance and the car was parked is... More
