Location is good...the restaurants are a stone throw away but wifi is limited to only 200 mb per day and plug points are limited. More so, you would need an adapter for your plugs. Spacious room but nothing much to shout about really.

I stayed at the Coastlands Hotel Umhlanga for 5 days during the Indaba Travel Show in Durban and I enjoyed my stay tremendously. This is without doubt a very good comfortable hotel. They say it is a 4 star but it easily beats some five star hotels that I have used before hands down! The rooms are spacious, a king... More

The entrance might seem dodgy, as well as the reception being located on a higher floor, but the overall offerings of the hotel together with service is respected. Great finishing's, modern design and well kept. Breakfast is excellent and so is the service received from its restaurant staff. Another highlight if the dinner buffet, excellent spread and overall excellent food,... More

Myself and a colleague booked in at very short notice for a single night stay having phoned a very friendly reservations person. On arrival at the very funky looking building, we were greeted with smiles and firm handshakes by both reception staff. Rooms are huge and very well appointed. Restaurant is 100% Halaal, but stunning food both at Buffet dinner... More

Stayed here recently for a conference. I had expected a much better venue based on brand and location. As noted by others, the 4th floor lobby is tricky to find. Even though the hotel knew our arrival time, the room wasn't ready and there was a two hour wait. Staff were less than helpful. After getting to room I requested... More

Had a one night stay here, mid week, for business in the Umhlanga area. Reception to the hotel is on the 4th floor, and security on the ground floor don't seem to be able to communicate this very well. Once lift, and reception, were located, fairly swift check in. I had prebooked with hotels.com and this didn't seem to cause... More

Music was played at full blast while guests hosted a party that spilled into corridors... More

My husband and I stayed here over the Easter weekend. Whilst the hotel room itself was large, spacious, clean and well appointed, the service definitely needs to be improved! Some of the annoying things we experienced during our stay: - we arrived at 11.30 and we were told we could not check in as the hotel was fully booked and... More
