The location is incredible and accessible. 10/10 for cleanliness and very helpful and informative staff members. The room was situated on the last floor which was on the 6th floor. It was peaceful and quiet.

It's my best + or - R1000/night stay so far. Everything was top notch - value for money, staff, facilities, cleanliness and location. The hotel is directly opposite Gateway Mall. I was here with my wife and daughter and we will definitely be back

Facilities not maintained or hotel staff even aware of problems in the rooms which they deposed to review daily. Reception allowed another unknown guest access to my rooms without validating with me. People used the facilities in my absence. Security risk. Use other hotels in Umhlanga.

I came here for a business trip in Umhlanga. We reserved two rooms and we had a good experience here with no complaints. The staff team goes the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable, I would definitely return.

Checking in was smooth. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The air conditioner was working well. The generator kicked in on time and we never felt loadshedding. The staff was welcoming and very friendly.
