“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Teremok Lodge is really wonderful. Luxurious space, great food, good honesty bar, helpful staff, wonderful little spa (pre-booking is advisable!) The B&B is centrally located, but in a very nice villa-style part of town. We stayed in the Milkwood room which has a small balcony (beware of monkey attacks!) and is a good size room with a very individual design. Apparently Durban View is even nicer with a big balcony and view towards Durban. We had booked the Burban View room, but other guests were already staying in it when we checked in – the only mishap of an otherwise perfect stay.
Umhlanga Rocks was a real surprise. It looks quite ugly with high-rise buildings when driving towards it, but it features some really good restaurants, a long sandy beach, good shopping and many things to do in the area (you need a car). The B&B will drive you to restaurants or into town, as it is apparently not safe to walk at night. Taxis are of course quite expensive for the short distance, but easily available.

From the moment that we arrived,we were treated like kings.The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel at home.The rooms are beautifully decorated and quite large.When we asked about restaurants they brought the differnent menus to us to decide what we would like to do and also made the booking promptly.There is also a transport available at no extra cost.We loved this place so much that we stayed an extra night

Room Tip: The Douglas room is a winner

On my previous visit, I stayed in a hotel near to the Gateway and as this visit was for over a week- I opted for a guest house... I was not disappointed with the Teremok Marine. From the arrival, the staff were extremely helpful and the quality of the rooms of very high standard... there is even an ambiance CD and candles for those wishing to have a relaxing bath! The service from in-house laundry, freshly-cooked breakfast daily and even shuttles to and from the Umhlanga village are included and extremely efficient. I cannot recommend more highly this establishment... just a pity that the weather wasn't better allowing for more use of the swimming pool.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear are theme-based so all the rooms are unique..

This is our second stay at Teremok and we absolutely love the charm and feel of this Lodge. The rooms are somewhat magnificent and the staff are so accommodating and friendly! Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

To start I would say that I don't tent to leave reviews often... so the very factalready talks for itself! Well... that and the other 70 reviews : )

I visited Umhlanga for work and stayed at Teremok a couple of nights, and it was just what I needed.
The place is amazing, I really liked it… it is a bit different from your conventional hotel (and I do travel a lot internationally) but I really liked it.
The standards are up to a top hotel but due to the number of rooms and the nature of the place itself it just feels homey, comfortable and I really had the impression of being given my space but having an outstanding service available for whatever I may have needed. In fact I would definitely say the service goes the little extra mile which makes a huge difference. As always, it is in the detail where the magic lives.

The decoration is superb and original, the hotels distribution great, breakfast is excellent, there is a pool, an awesome selection of DVDs you can use free of charge, good quality wireless (free) and each room is different but to an amazing standard… a bit like out of an art-deco magazine ;)

There is an “Honesty bar”, free good quality coffee, homemade muffins, monkeys in the Garden, a nice little pool... They prepared the room, put fragrances on it and left a jazz compilation playing at the room for my arrival (how cool is that?). Also the managers are very professional yet really warm.

There is also transport service available and it’s very close to the sea.

To conclude, looking at the price vs location and quality i was delighted. I will be going back if I am in Umhslanga again.

PD: I think the place is perfect for couples as well ;)

As with previous stays the standard was excellent, the hosts went out of their way to assist with our needs. All in all can recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Umhlanga. And thanks to Ninnette for arranging for my jersey to be sent back to me in Joburg.

We arrived after a tiring flight. Met by a most delightful and helpful man who relaxed us, made sure we understood (the admittedly rather complex) geography of the rooms and we had a fabulous stay. He took us to a nearby restaurant (which he wisely advised), and picked us up later there.

The rooms were quirky in a nice way but practical (so often either one or the other!! not here). Coffee machines everywhere is a nice touch. Setting is nice and the gardens lovely and well kept. Pool inviting.

The breakfast was THE BEST EVER.

Overall the best place we stayed during our 2 week travels in South africa, and up there with the best anywhere, regardless of cost.

Lovely walk on the beach afterwards. We felt so welcome and safe.
