This hotel is strategically located, overlooking the famous south beach. The rooms are spacious and tidy, the staff friendly, the wi-fi fast and the breakfast superb. It is a few minutes drive to the famous U-Shaka marine world and walking distance to the beach.

Comfortable large double room with clean linen & towels. Aircon worked and service staff well trained. Close to beach front and a walk away from UShaka Marine World, the hotel offers a discount if the tickets are purchased directly from the hotel.
