Evening arrival after a long day probably had me a tad grumpy but irritating checkin process, a demand for a voucher despite them having my confirmed booking before releasing my room key (it was after hors so no travel agent to call), grey passages, grey room , expensive and bad dinner buffet, slow and limited (200mb) wifi and my grumpiness...

With breath taking views and stunning rooms to go with. Close proximity to Gateway shopping mall and Umhlanga beach. Loads of activity just around the corner. Restuarant has stunning views overlooking the ocean. True value for money

Very Spacious rooms, very well decorated. Nice clean spacious bathrooms. I have stayed here a few times, all the rooms i was given had a shower only. All round sea views. Ideally located on the Umhlanga ridge ... Very close by the top of LightHouse Drive. The breakfast and meals are good. The service is good, though the staff can... More

I visited this spa with my cousin, we had booked the refresher package which included a pedicure, a full body massage and a foot massage. I found the staff members at this spa to be extremely unprofessional. The treatments received were all well below average. The therapist seemed preoccupied during all of my treatments, she also constantly left the room... More

The service received by the staff was excellent. They went out of their way to ensure we were happy. The room was lovely with trendy decor. The breakfast was good but there was not much variety. I had previously stayed at Coastlands Musgrave and that was just a horrible stay, from the service and attitude of staff to the room.... More

The start of my stay was not great as I arrived around 11am to enquire if an early check-in was possible only to be told that check-in is only possible from 2pm. No discussion and no offer to even get me to stay for a coffee! Fortunately there are some great spots in the area willing to serve lunch and... More

Good morning. Thank you for your valuable booking and recent stay at Coastlands Umhlanga Hotel. We normally offer an early check-in upon request, but unfortunately the hotel was fully booked the night prior to your arrival and we needed time to clean and refresh your room to make your stay a comfortable one.

Nice looking, clean neat, but that's about it. I wanted to use the pool deck.... Closed after 8pm... Really? I just paid over a grand and they're more concerned about the neighbors... Sorry sir, hotel policy. How about this for a hotel policy..... We'd be pleased to be of service....
