I particularly enjoyed my stay in December with my family. Very good location of the hotel. Easy access to entertainment. Although this time I was on business. I stayed with family over Christmas holiday. The very first Christmas oway from home in a long time. My wife and kids loved and they can't wait to go back again. Gateway mall... More

Hotel is situated so far away from any seaview, yet its lower grade sister hotel- the Holiday Inn Express has the best view of the sea. The view from my hotel room was the Natal Sharks Board, a building from the past. For us business people who do not get a chance to be at the beach need the view... More

An average rate does not do it justice as certainly an above average, however it is a little confused as lacks in key areas. I stayed on business and hence it does not make sense not to have room fridges or a business centre, but excellent Wi-Fi and overall comfortable and a good location. Services was good and food (including... More

I walked into the hotel to friendly reception staff and willingness to help. The rooms were clean and perfect for a short stay. The one thing that I would've liked different is the bedding. It felt thin and not for comfort. The duvet was a little thin and more like a top sheet. Other than that a great stay and... More

Checked in last night. I must say it is up to standard for a hotel in uMhlanga area. I had a restful, peaceful sleep. The area is quite and it's reasonably price. I'd sleep here anytime. It's a walk away from the Gateway mall which adds convenience. I wud recommend this hotel to anyone

I just brought a group of 12 people over to South Africa from the USA to go on a safari. We were starting in the Durban area, and needed a place to stay near the airport so that we could get a good night's rest before moving on. I read the reviews on this and many other hotels in the... More

On checking in at the garden court in umhlanga, my experience was horrific. Aaron the Indian gentleman at the checkin desk was rude, not customer savvy, his attitude was disgusting. Did not know how to speak to customers. Breakfast staff in terms of waitrons were terrible, as well as the food. The bed was also absolutely uncomfortable, and being winter... More

This lovely hotel is quite the dynamite that comes in small packages. Stayed there 5 nights in July. Good parking for your car; walking distance to Gateway Mall & Natal Sharks Board, big variety breakfast buffet (my kids enjoyed everything); friendly staff. Rooms & bathrooms are super clean, bedding impeccable. Wifi free A great place to make a base &... More
