I highly recommend this Hotel to any person travelling for business or pleasure. The staff is great, the service is impeccable. Very clean and very neat. This Hotel puts a lot of 4 stars or 5 stars to shame!

This was my 2nd stay at the GC Umhlanga and I absolutely loved it. Our check-in was smooth & a special mention has to go to the breakfast buffet. I generally do not enjoy hotel buffets but this one is delicious and you are spoilt for choice. The location is also great as we could walk to Gateway Mall.

Our stay was booked in an emergency fashion, we rapidly needed alternative accommodation due to lack of water in our other accommodation. Booked and paid online, no issues, room was a little small for 2 adults and two children, but we managed OK. Facilities were good as were breakfast and dinner.

The location of the hotel is great. Gateway shopping centre is a walking distance and easy access to the freeway and airport. Beaches are closeby. The Hotel staff were friendly and helpful all the time

Very well designed and serviced with all basic amenities. Would have liked to at least have 2 500 ml water each day provided as part of the room, but that is not a train smash. The toilet seat needs to be repaired or adjusted, as that was the only annoying part of staying in the room. Apart from that service... More
