We stay here every year. Geoff and Di are excellent hosts. The room is spacious and immaculate. The staff are friendly. Breakfast is most enjoyable and the Lodge is just a walk away from the beach and the shops. Once we get there, we don't use our car until we leave.

The location is within easy walking distance of the beachfront, restaurants, and shops. This was important to me as I didn't have a car; however, there is safe parking for those who need it. The owners were remarkably helpful and thoughtful, and their staff members were always attentive and pleasant. I feel fortunate to have stayed at such a fine... More

The overall stay was very pleasant. The service is very good, the breakfasts offers a great variety and the view and breakfast room very peaceful. It is ideally situated near some amazing restaurants in the village within walking distance. Highly recomended

A great stay in a good location with friendly helpful staff, the only problem we had was a squeaky sleeper couch which kept us awake at times whenever our son turned over in his sleep, but apart from that, very good stay.

I attended the IAS conference in Durban and spent the greater part of the day outside the lodge, however, the team at the lodge ensured that even with the short time you spent in the morning and late evening, you enjoyed the family-centred atmosphere. It is a real home away from home.

Mostly very good. We arrived and checked in with no fuss. The room was well appointed and very comfortable with a lovely shower. Disappointments: room was right next to the parking lot and main entrance so was noisy during night as guests came and went. We had an omelette for breakfast which we thought was below par. Otherwise, very nice... More

Service on booking was excellent and because the room was not occupied on the previous night I was allowed to check-in at 10h30. Location just off Lagoon Drive was convenient and an easy 10 minute walk to the nearest beach. The room was comfortable, airy and amenities were plentiful. Breakfast was freshly prepared. Safe and spacious parking was available within... More

I booked six rooms at Flamingo Lodge for myself and eight friends, for two nights. I tend to book based on recommendations but needed something quickly and at short notice, so had to rely on my own gut instinct using the internet. I was thrilled to have picked this B&B and simply cannot fault it in any way. The location... More

My experience at Flamingo Lodge was beautiful there was no hassle in arriving late because there was an after hours button the staff was very friendly,the room and bathroom was beautiful and very neat,very cozy place without any disturbances or noise and the best part is its walking distance to the beach and lovely restaurants will definitely be back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. The Promenade is ideal for those people who like to walk or jog and is about 4 kilometers long, with spectacular scenery, open air restaurants and the occasional sighting of dolphins or whales. Umhlanga Rocks is situated some 10 minutes from the new King Shaka International Airport, and just 12 kilometers north of downtown Durban. Very close to the famous Gateway Shopping Centre and surrounded by world class Golf Clubs. Park your vehicle in our safe car park and you are within a 2 minute walk to the beaches and to the various first class restaurants and shopping facilities that the Village has to offer. Each of the eight tastefully decorated bedrooms all has their own en suite bathrooms/showers, as well as their own private patios. All rooms are equipped with Satellite Television, Safes, Tea/Coffee making facilities and individually controlled Air-Cons. and Fans. 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.
