Just visited. What a dump. Sat in the restaurant overlooking the algae lined swimming pool and the tables with cigarette butts still in the ash tray. You would think with the 6 or so staff standing around they could have cleaned up. Had a really grotty feel to the place. We ordered chicken salads. After 20 minutes a waiter returned... More

Having stayed here about two years ago, I was shocked by the decline in the standard of almost everything from the ambiance, maintenance and service. That was until I found out that the hotel was closing down after the upcoming holiday season. If the above-mentioned decline is anything to go by, it is no surprise that this establishment has to...

We visited this hotel last weekend with my husband. We had stayed here before and had a fabulous time. This time things changed. The hotel is closing down in January and you can feel it. The rooms are not as great as they used to be, and the food was not good at all. This is too bad because the... More

Hi - This hotel is closing down early next year however is still accepting deposits for bookings! We are trying to find out how we can get our deposits refunded. DO NOT TOUCH THIS PLACE! The admin staff are as helpful as a piece of drift wood. In hind sight.... i shouldve believed the previous reviews.

The food was disgusting, service was really bad, the geyser is so tiny that after a 10 minute shower, you run out of hot water. Management is poor and very organised. I would not recommend this Hotel to anyone as I have had a millions time better service and hospitality at 3 star bed and breakfasts in comparison to this... More

Having viewed the Boulevard 44 Hotel's website I was impressed by the overall look and promise of a private and tranquil retreat at the end if the day. Well that did not happen. My partner and I arrived at 20:30 and were met by a very friendly receptionist who sadly informed as that the room was not ready (?). What?!... More

I am in the hospitality industry and must say that the rooms were quite appealing, clean and well appointed, however the breakfast left a lot to be desired. I was appalled at the quality of food as well the level of service in this so called four star establishment. If this is what a four star hotel is supposed to... More

Stayed there for 2 nights but not again. Rooms are okay, but the noise of people having a party on both nights at the hotel was really poorly controlled. The service was also slow in the morning. Nothing special.

Do not plan a special occasion at this venue - They don't seem to care. Their lack of management and lack of professionalism is disgusting. Very disappointed. The food was terrible, the lettuce salad and hard bread rolls were not much to write home about, the mains were dry and tasteless, the meats were not meat, more like shoe leather... More

Great place to stay. Ideal if travelling on business especially for single person stay over. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are neat and modern. The food isn't the best. But not far from all amenities and restaurants in umhlanga. Good service.
