Clean and spacious two bedroom unit with bath and shower. Coffe station and mini bar in the room. Lovely pool area to relax. Close the the mall. There is a guard on duty 24 hours on the property. Only let down was the load shedding during our stay.

We arrived early and Sylvan Grove was very accommodating. We were lucky our room as ready when we arrived. The locum guest house manager at the time, Shelley Brown, was absolutely lovely which made our stay extra special. Thank you!

I had a great stay here. All the staff went our of their way to accommodate me and my difficult requests. The place felt safe and there is an onsite security guard too. The location was closest enough to all the major spots in Umhlanga

Everything was really good. Only concern was the noise from the builders in an opposite building site starting work before 8 in the morning. Either than that service and room was great. Very convenient as well.
