Good hotel in Umhlanga north of Durban
A good hotel in a great location north of Durban. Modern area with plenty of very good restaurants, coffee bars etc. A great way to be in the Durban area without being downtown. Also, close to the historic Oyster Box Hotel (too expensive to stay there for me), where one can have a drink on the patio overlooking Umhlanga rocks, the old lighthouse, and the Indian Ocean.

It is my second time to come to this hotel and this time I invited other family and friends and we booked 4 rooms. It was much fun as usual except that one day my daughter slipped on the kitchen floor carrying a loose ice cream in a tub and it was unfortunately sprinkled on the bed. We requested a change and yes it was taken away but we were told it is the only one (which was weird) and we were asked to wait for it to be washed, but it never came back for the rest of the holiday even after we made many calls, so we had to do with a sheet only and thanks to the blankets until we left. Another thing is the way the iron issue is handled, if you request an iron you never get it at all, and that is everyday, we survived by going up and down all the floors to find one on the passage. Except for that this hotel is very warm just its ambiance, the views, and the location with the many restaurants and entertainment, we enjoyed our stay thank you

Very Good8.0
Good clean and very comfortable.
The rooms were comfortable and I loved the fresh and bright decor . The linen and blackout curtains con tributed towards my family and myself enjoying peaceful nights sleeps. I would have preferred however to have carpet on the floor rather than a wood type floor as our feet constantly felt dirty against the floor boards and we had to keep on our bed slippers. The price list at the bar was overpriced in comparison to other restaurants and bars in the area . Staff at reception were friendly and eager to please. Even the security guards were friendly and smiling.
