The location and setting of Canelands is beautiful and is the most redeeming feature about this place. We were disappointed witht the accomodation and felt that we were overpaying for what we got. The room looks tired. The curtains were shabby and untidy where they hook up, the metal clothes rod in the cupboard is rusted as well as some... More

Canelands is a superbly positioned boutique hotel and spa. It is very much an oasis on the North Coast. I have been here many times before, however during my last few visits I have been increasingly dissatisfied with the quality of service and most importantly the quality of the food served. Breakfast used to be a delicious and enjoyable experience.... More

We had our beach wedding in Dec 2015 and booked Canelands for the weekend. From our arrival we were treated exceptionally well by Christine, Catherine, Suran & Chef Sean. Our needs and requests were attended to promptly and this team ensured that my wedding day was spectacular. Our guests that stayed over loved the 25m long pool and convenient access... More

Stayed 4 nights in December 2015. Overall impression is of a very nice boutique hotel with fantastic staff and amazing views. Pros : Ocean-facing rooms are fantastic. Garden-side / Carpark-facing rooms less so but still ok. We were initially in a carpark-facing room but later on moved to an ocean-facing one. All are clean and modern with good facilities but...

We stayed between Christmas and New year, a group of 6 adults,a 4 year old and 6 week old. All staff were brilliant, polite, friendly and so very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful views of the ocean, Great food in the restaurant and the spa was lovely too. We would all love to go back and staying again!... More

Where ever I go in the world, as an avid swimmer, one of the challenges set it to find hotels with the coolest pools. Canelands delivered. A perfect 20 something meter lap pool, no kids and panoramic views of the ocean. A truly luxurious room with unbelievable views, good food, a lovely spa and very kind staff. Oh and the... More

This contemporary hotel sits right on the beach in Salt Rock and was a great place to recover from some long road journeys in KZN. Modern architecture buffs will appreciate the floor to ceiling windows and the decor. We had room 10(i think) which was vast with a private terrace and open plan bathroom. The view as you woke up...
