“It had it all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2010

We've stayed in hotels of all types, all over the world, and this rates as one of our favourites. It's like staying at an intimate 4* boutique hotel, where everyone is genuinely friendly.

Everyone, Mike, Ursula, Alan and Sheila were so hospitable and nothing, but nothing seemed too much trouble; from making us a coffee in the evening, to dropping us off at the cinema. Sheila told us that they only provided breakfast, but if we'd let her know she would make us an evening meal!

The place was so clean, and remained so throughout our stay. Our room exceeded our expectations, as did most things about the Sandringham. From the pool in the garden to the large first floor outside decked area, to the spacious and comfortable lounges we loved every minute of the 4 days we stayed there.

It's ideally situated, in a peaceful, uparket area, 15 min walk away from Gateway shopping centre and Umhlanga beach, and it's the only place we'll stay when we visit Durban again.

We stayed for 4 nights and the service and accomnodation were first class. The manager Ryan was very helpul and all the staff were poilte and could not do enough for you. The room was fantastic and breakfasts were a real treat. We had a great stay and were able to meet other guests whilst out on the breakfast patio. They had an honesty bar which was great idea as we didn't have to bother the staff all the time. I would highly recommed this quality b & b for families, business travellers, young or old
