Fantastic service and value for money. Ansteys beach- what a location- very balanced- away from but not out of the city. Staff was very friendly and helpful.Other guests of all races were very friendly.

About
Description
On the beach - a quick walk down the little roadway (approx. 50m) and you're on the beach. Great place to relax and unwind – feels like a permanent holiday! Fully equipped Self Catering Apartments (1, 2, 4 and 6 More sleeper cottages), budget Backpacker dorms, doubles, twins and private rooms set in a tropical garden. All major KZN tourist attractions within a 15 minute to 3 hour radius, so it's a great place to base yourself if you plan on doing a few day trips in KZN. For our business clients, we are within close proximity to all the industrial centres – Jacobs, Maydon Wharf, Prospecton, Clairwood. Great atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. Free super fast fibre wifi connection, small bar, swimming pool, pool table as well as a small surf/beach/curio shop. Heidi's Cafe on site - a very popular cafe serving good filter coffee, breakfasts (health and full English), as well as delicious home baked treats (when available - these sell out fast!) Less
