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

We recently stayed at this hotel and I would like to warn any guests that are intending to stay at this hotel.

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

The hotel is well situated in Umhlanga for most of your needs. Close to the highway, close to the main roads and central to most Umhlanga needs. The hotel is very clean and everything is finished well. The room was a very good size and everyone felt that they were in a really higher end hotel. The locals however race... More

Stayed at this hotel for business for 2 nights. Initially greeted by friendly check in staff at around 8pm, yet followed up by a pushy porter that didn't allow me to take my (very small) bag up myself. Some people may like this, but at least give me an option please. Arriving at my room on the 7th floor, there... More

Fantastic, friendly, helpful staff! Breath of fresh air! Large bedroom and bathroom, well fitted out, very comfortable bed and pillows. Daily change of linen and towels, we stayed 4 days. Very good breakfast buffet. We stayed on the 9th floor, noise from a function on the 11th floor one night. Stay on a lower floor.
