Nicely neat boutique hotel with Victorian furnishings and within a walking distance from the famous Gateway Mall ( just a stone through away from the gigantic mall). Plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from. The hotel does have a restaurant with reasonable quality food. We took up a junior suite and it had so many extras at a reasonable...

Great hotel positioned right near Gateway. Rooms are very big and the hotel presents great value. The hotel is in need of some general maintenance, however this should not distract you. The rooms are better than average and the value good.

Everything was fine and the staff helpful and friendly so no complaints. Only negative was that we had a back room which has a poor outlook onto a block of flats with all the washing on the balconies. Front rooms are great and overlook Gateway. We would use it again but try for a front room for sure.

Location of the hotel is within shopping range, beach range. Very convenient! Friendly staff. Umhlanga ridge is up the hill from Umhlanga Rocks, but still a brisk 15min walk down to the beach won't inconvenience you. This place is all about keeping fit, dressing up and drinking fancy gin and tonic

Large apartment style rooms and the hotel is conveniently located at Gateway for all local activities. Parking a bit of hassle as car park located at back of property and shared with offices, so can be confusing to find where to park. Staff efficient. Some issues with Hotels.com when booking as hotel took payment in advance, despite being a refundable...

This is an amazing hotel. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Service was excellent. The room was better than expected (really big) I'd definitely stay here again in the future. It's a lovely environment to be in.

Rooms are great and spacious, housekeeping services need a lot of attention, waited so long for simple items and rooms were never cleaned properly, items like water bottles was not replaced from the second night, tea and coffee wasn't replaced as well, staff need to be trained more especially in the restaurant, the waiter had no idea what was happening,...
