Nice Property, very nice and helpful staff who did assist me with my luggage and a friendly driver. The rooms are quite spacious and well thought out but the bed and pillows for me was quite uncomfortable although that is a personal preference. I arrived at 22.30 at this time there is no room service, the hotel doesn't provide any... More

Nice big rooms and a good location. The only problem being quite far away from the city centre. The only way to get to the city is via taxi. The location is safe and the shopping center is very close. Friendly staff.

The location of the hotel is great. I have slept there twice. The first time was great, I had a queen size bed. Second time was horrible, I was given a room with 2 three quarter beds when I had specifically stated I was travelling alone. I had to squeeze myself on this tiny bed and woke up with a... More

First let me list the positives. The staff are excellent, always smiling and very willing to assist, with the strange exception of not helping with luggage into the room. The breakfast, which was included in our price, was very good with a variety of both cold and hot choices and both in plentiful supply. Proximity to Gateway Shopping Center was... More

Great hotel, friendly staff and perfectly positioned for business and holiday stay when you visit Umhlanga area. The hotel is also right by Gateway shopping center so there are many restaurants and coffee shops at the door-step. The room has a large comfortable bed, great shower and is very modern. Breakfast was included in the price and had a decent... More

Room, comfortable and clean. Not massive and there was a bath in the middle of our room which was a little strange since there wasn't a huge amount of space but it was clean and good value for money. Breakfast was great (the breakfast staff were really really lovely). We'd had a few problems on check in, rooms not adjoining... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times, both alone and with my family. Each time the service has been excellent. Rooms are fairly unique with toilet and shower in the room with frosted doors which may be an issue if privacy is a concern. Baths are also free-standing in the room for superior rooms. None of these were problems... More

Modern and functional design with cubicle like ablution area. Shower only. Room had all that was needed- but no extra comforts. Secure under-cover parking. Front desk staff offered excellent service and assisted us with arranging a city tour. Good value for money. Great access to Gateway Mall and Umhlanga village and beach. Very central for a multitude of restaurants.
