This guesthouse is a real gem. You really feel welcome and Marcelle really took the time to give tips what to do and where to eat. The rooms were wonderful. The beach is right next door and the centre of town is a 5 minutes drive. Breakfast is one of the best we had on our trip.

Nice place to stay with the beach very closeby (20-30 mtr's), very good hospitality and a great breakfast. Very friendly and we got good advice about where to dinner and where to shop. Also we got good about our next destination Tendele in Drakensbergen.

We loved our stay at Zeranka Lodge. Nice room, good breakfast and nice people. The Lodge has its own path to the beach. We can recommend this lodge for your stay at Umhlanga Fantastic dinner at Little Havana. The best place to be!!

This was our second visit to Zeranka , and even though we are locals (stay 70km North) this truly felt like being on holiday. Marcelle , well done , you have certainly maintained the high standard of a top class B&B. This was a special occasion for my wife's birthday and she was thrilled to receive a gift on arrival...

We stay only for one night in Zeranka Lodge, but it was fantastic. Lovely lodge and lovely people. Excellent breakfast and the kids loves the swimmingpool, even it was winter. Directly from the lodge you can go to the beach.

It was such a pleasure having a wonderful family like yours stay with us. The children were very brave to swim in the "winter." We are really lucky to have such warm and welcoming weather throughout the year. So glad that you had a pleasant stay with us. Wishing you a safe trip on your return home. More

We unfortunately only stayed for 1 night. The Zeranka lodge fully met our expectations. The room was very well equipped, perfect bed and clean. Breakfast was complete and very tasteful. The lodge is situated close to the city centre and beaches. We really recommend the Zeranka lodge when visiting Umhlanga.

Such a pity you were only booked into the lodge for 1 night. Glad you enjoyed the breakfast we had on offer and were more than satisfied with the lodge's facilities. It was so lovely having you stay with us and wish you safe travels on your return trip home, maybe next visit will be for a few more nights. More

We, a family of four, had a short but very nice stay at the Zeranka lodge. The hosts make you feel welcome from the first minute. The lodge is very nicely decorated and is right at the beach. The breakfast is wonderful with all that you can wish for. We would have liked to stay longer! The only negative is... More
