I enjoyed the staff and the stay. Just though that for dinner one would get smaller portions (my dinner plate was for 2 people) and the pudding was bought cake and a huge chunk too.....I expected something homemade. But other than this I was happy with everything.

Sun Basking at the Umhlanga Rocks Beach was AMAZING!. It's child friendly.

I've been staying at The Sandringham on business trips for the past 7 years. You can be assured of the same high standard on every visit - clean room, comfortable bed and fresh breakfast. I recommend this establishment to my customers, suppliers and friends.

We had a wonderful weekend stay at this place the staff and accomodation were superb and would definitely return if we are in the area again. It is close to the beach just a short drive and not far from shopping mall if you needed to do that.

A very well cared for establishment where the staff are attentive but not in your face. It is very centrally located and near to all the facilities. It has the feel of an hotel more than a B&B. I would recommend Sandringham to anyone visiting the north coast of Kwazulu Natal.

This lodge is in need of restauration and tender care. However, the location of some rooms cannot be changed: they are staright out of the car park. That is, you get out of a car (several cars parked in the same lot) and walk straight into your room. Not even a step! Obviously any guest arriving or leaving, will make... More
