Hotel is centrally located in Umhlanga village amongst shops and reasturants and a few minutes stroll to the beach. The rooms are large and clean with a small kitchenette. The staff are friendly, polite and efficient. The only disappointment is the roof top gold fish bowl that doubles as a swimming (splash) pool. It is extremely small for a hotel of this size and i only saw about 10 sun beds in the pool area. The breakfast i thought was expensive but there are plenty resataurants in the area that serve breakfast. I will definately stay here again as i found the hotel extremely comfortable.
