The outside areas are beautiful and really appealing, however the inside leaves a lot to be desired. The view is to die for though...endless views of the deep blue sea and if you like watching ships then it's just perfect. At night it's stunning as the ships turn on their lights against a black backdrop. Really beautiful!!! However, the room... More

Friendly helpfull staff but that is all. Breakfast is average everything is available but nothing is spectacular. Best of all is no room service not even a good cup of coffee or cuppicino!!! Rooms is very spacious but not one news channel on the TV. Very central to airport and Durban area.

As my son needed to take part in a soccer tournament, the lodge was ideal as it was close to the areas where we needed to be. We stayed from Monday to Saturday. Breakfast was excellent, pool area was good, the room was ample as we spent most of our time involved with the tournament away from the lodge. The... More

The hotel is nice. It is simple, neat and clean. Beds are comfy, showers nice and clean and the breakfast is simple but good. We stayed in a Family room and it was quite spacious. I would definitely stay here again, I think the location is great. Only "negative" is that the Casino complex itself takes a bit of a... More

The hotel/Lode is functional, air conditioned, cable TV and does room service. We stayed there for two nights mid week in May this year. We were attending a family funeral and really just used the lodge to stay overnight. The linen was crisp, rooms clean and staff very friendly. In terms of price I think it compares favourably to lodges... More

The first impression upon arrival was that of a very classy lodge, although our experience during check-in was not a good one. Despite reception being rather quiet, we had to wait for quite a while before being attended to. Our room was not ready when we arrived at 14:30, and was not serviced yet. However that did not dampen our... More
