The Hotel has potential. No complaints with the staff. They were very friendly and efficient . Only had breakfast at restraint but was very disappointed. Room could do with a bar fridge and maybe a bottled water.

We were booked in here for a conference and arrived quite late at night. The staff were efficient and happy to help with anything. The room was neat, clean, spacious and the bed was excellent. The conference venue was great and the catering staff were quite on top of things. Definitely a good choice as a conference venue.

The room was spacious, the service was excellent, the free breakfast included was delicious and the restaurant at the hotel Saffron had an excellent seafood buffet. I would recommend this hotel...

I stayed at the Coastlands Umhlanga Hotel for 8 days and felt almost overwhelmed by the service i received. I was met on arrival by a friendly concierge who made me forget how tired i was, by his helpfulness! The staff at the reception desk was sympathetic to my "fatigue", and quickly gave me a room. The room was big,... More

The room and bathroom had lovely interiors. A bit more suited to business trips rather than a weekend at the coast, but still lovely. The bed was huge, and wonderfully comfortable. The atmosphere at the hotel and especially breakfast was definitely more business like, so if you are looking for something with more of a holiday feel, go for one... More

My mom and I flew to Durban from Johannesburg to visit friends and family on the weekend of the 18th of June. After hearing some good things about the hotel we decided to stay there on our mini getaway. As we settled into our room, I walked into the bathroom only to find it semi-flooded with worms in the water!... More

Booked through another online booking company. On arrival were told there was no record of our reservation. Eventually resolved although reception staff were quite unhelpful/grumpy. Rooms nicely done. Super comfortable bed. Too much glass in the bathroom. Bad acoustics. TV inconsistent sound. Halal restaurant. Lift with a mind of its own. Huge party on 11th floor that shook the whole... More
