    We stayed at St James for Comrades weekend. Great location to the start of the race, aided by the fantastic shuttle service recommended to us by the lodge. Easy access to Umhlanga Rocks and Gateway. Friendly Staff.

    No pool, but a lovely terrace with a water feature, where meals may be enjoyed. There is also a herb garden through which one can stroll, alongside an ancient fig tree.
