I have just returned from another stay at City Lodge Umhlanga. I always love it as it is in the best location for shopping etc at Gateway. The hotel entrance is just a few metres away from the restaurant court. the shops are a few more metres away and in the shopping centre there is plenty to do like - theatre, m ovies, ten pin bowling, wave house etc.
The breakfast is very good at this hotel.
The staff are always helpful.
The rooms exactly what would be expected at a City Lodge.
My only complaint this time was the noise from outside. I have never noticed it before but my room was on a different side of the hotel this time (overlooking the swimming pool) and i really found it very noisy. Not from the pool though. I'm not sure where the noise came from but it was as if we were in town.
Overall, I can highly recomment his hotel for people who need/want to be near Gateway.
For people who don't know, this is not a beachfront hotel.

Room Tip: I like the rooms that overlook Gateway.

The hotel is at the Gateway shopping centre and makes it easy to access all the restaurants and facilities in the shopping centre. I think that the hotel's greatest feature is its location.
It is a fairly new hotel and contains all the necessary amenities, but it is easynto feel like you are just another guest - one of many. The rooms are spacious and good quality linen is provided. Everything in my room was in working order and there is basement parking for all guests. I felt safe at all times. I do feel that the check-in staff could have put in more effort to explain the layout of the hotel, dining room hours and the coffee shop.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the inside of the courtyard , overlooking the pool.

i stayed at the hotel< for 3 nights over the long weekend, in April and May, the room was of decent standard, and across the street from the Gateway Shopping center, extremely convenient, and relaxing

Room Tip: Take a pool facing room, less quiet than facing the Gateway

The hotel is very conveniently located i.e. within 50 meters of the Gateway shopping centre. Rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable. Service from staff was efficient and the breakfasts were great.
