Positive Reviews

Great views of the ocean

Every room at the hotel has at least a partial view of the ocean, which visitors appreciate. The views of the Indian Ocean are breathtaking, according to travellers, and add value to the property as a whole.

In a shopping district

The hotel sits in a major shopping district in Umhlanga and is a short walk from Gateway Shopping Centre. Guests love the location because it is close to numerous shops and restaurants, and also not far from the beach.

Tasty food in the restaurant

Travellers enjoy the hotel's restaurants, saying they serve high-quality food no matter what the time of day. However, guests are particularly fond of the breakfast buffet available each morning.

Negative Reviews

Not enough lifts

There aren't enough lifts in the building to accommodate a hotel of this size, especially when multiple events are taking place at once. Travellers complain about the lifts being cramped and say they often have to wait.

Noise from the event venues

Since the hotel is popular with weddings and parties, and has multiple on-site event venues, guests say it can get noisy at night. Because of this noise, travellers find it difficult to sleep. Earplugs may be required here.
