I stayed in 10 Woodlands for the Comrades Marathon. I could not have chosen a better place. The staff were simply amazing – anticipating, and going well above and beyond, to meet needs. A few of many examples: organising a lift to the race at 4.30am, providing bits and pieces for the race, Epsom salts for the recovery bath etc – all unasked for, simply offered. Ursula (the owner) even brought some muffins the evening after the race when I didn’t have the energy to order a take away.
Race aside, the accommodation itself was very comfortable with excellent touches such as real coffee in the rooms, fast reliable wireless, secure parking, nice swimming pools etc. Well located to some decent restaurants and Woolworths food shopping.
I rarely stay in the same place twice. But I’ll gladly make an exception for 10 Woodlands. Whenever I’m in Durban, this is the place I will book, especially, but not only, for the Comrades!
