Loved the Flamingo Lodge - beautiful view from the veranda over morning breakfast. Sea view in the distance. Excellent service, beautiful rooms and the location is of the best.

This lodge is colonial style with such friendly and helpful staff. It really is a 5 star service with very comfy beds and great facilities.

Geoff let me stay until after 2p.m. on checkout day with no extra cost - very fair!

Lovely place, staff and food. Excellent all round.

Stayed here for a couple of nights and was impressed with everything on offer. The rooms were large and well maintained. Breakfast on the balcony was very nice, the owner provided useful tips and the location to the centre of Umhlanga Rocks was great. All round great stay

We were staying in Durban for the 2nd Lion’s test and wanted a cheap and convenient location to stay for 2 nights.

The Flamingo lodge B&B provided this at a decent price. The facilities were clean, breakfast was good and the self-service bar was well-stocked.

Flamingo Lodge is a 4 Star establishment situated in the heart of Umhlanga Rocks and is closest of all the Guest Lodges (200 Meters) to the main "Blue Flag" bathing beach and the Beach Front Promenade.

One of the rooms is a self catering apartment consisting of a double room with ensuite bathroom (with a bath and a separate shower) a separate television lounge which has a sleeper couch, kitchenette and dining area. The whole Lodge is an "Internet Hot Spot" so people with their own wireless computers enjoy free internet facilities. The Lodge provides for its guests an Honesty Bar as well as an Internet Cafe, where guests can down load their digital pictures on to Disc. A Full English Breakfast is served outside on our balcony, with great views of the sea. We have an arrangement where a few Village restaurants offer a discount to our guests. We have several world class golf resorts within a 10 kilometer drive. Dolphin viewing, Deep-Sea Diving and Fishing Safaris all start from "Grannies Pool" which is just in front of us on the beach. The Moses Mobhida Football stadium is just 10 kms down the road The Drakensberg Mountains with its many resorts are about a 2 hour drive from Durban as are the many Game Parks that surround the St Lucia Wetlands.
