The Hotel itself is quite nice, it has big family rooms and there is more than enough space for everyone. Even the standard rooms are reasonably sized all with a view of Umhlanga.
However the lifts were a nightmare and breakfast is Halaal on most days. You have to often wait for sometime for a lift and on some floors there is no option to use the stairs.
To go to another floor you need a room key otherwise there is no way to access the area, unless you are going to floors 1-4. There was noise each night we were there and some of the staff members are petty insisting you do see things their way, for example: we wanted rooms close together as we went as a family and one of the 'hotel receptionists' insisted that it was silly to request that.
In short, the rooms and facilities are good but there is a lot of noise and half the staff is not properly trained in terms of customer service.
