“Fabulous new kid on the block”
Reviewed November 30, 2010

Spent 3 nights at this new hotel from 27 November with my wife and 10 year old daughter after noticing a great bed and breakfast promotional offer. The hotel is situated more towards the La Lucia Ridge side of Umhlanga in the quiet and more business part of town. Upon arrival we were treated extremely well by friendly and efficient staff and this continued throughout the entire stay. No doubt this can be attributed to being a small hotel with approximately 50 rooms and therefore guests are treated extremely well. The rooms were spacious enough and offered all the necessary amenities and the bathroom compact. The beds and pillows were really good and enabled a pleasant nights rest. The hotel offers a decent enough breakfast (both hot and cold) and for supper we opted to eat in the adjoining Square complex which has a Greek and Chinese restuarant. The only potential downside to staying here would be if you don't have transport as the beach is approximately 5 minutes drive which could be a fair walk back to the hotel after a day on the beach or you are looking for vibrant nightlife. Otherwise in a nutshell I would highly recommend this hotel to either businessmen/women or those people wanting a quiet weekend away and don't forget to make use of the spa. Will definitely be back in the near future.

I've experienced a variety of hotels in Durban and Umhlanga region but none of which have the attributes and pleasures of The Square Boutique Hotel. A hotel with a blend of urbanisation and sophistication. Diminishes the fine line between business and pleasure. A noted top class hotel in my books.
