About Tariman INN

Tariman INN, located in the coastal town of Umhlanga, makes for a pleasant retreat for visitors to Durban, a 20 minute drive away. This property overlooks the ocean and boasts a pool and conference facilities.

The nine en-suite bedrooms come with air conditioning, a refrigerator and microwave. Each has satellite TV, a safe and hot drinks making facilities.

Tariman INN can stage business events for up to 30 people in its flexible conference room. Guests can relax in the pool, on the veranda or in a communal lounge.

A buffet or cooked breakfast is served in the dining area or by the pool. There is also an “honesty” bar and barbecue area. Alternatively, Al Firenze, about a three minute drive away, offers fine Italian cuisine.

La Lucia Mall is just 600 metres from the property and the beach is under a kilometre away. Ushaka Marine World in Durban is around 15 kilometres from the accommodation.

Positive Reviews

Beautiful house and grounds

Guests appreciate the nice building in which the guesthouse is set and being able to relax around the pool and bar area.

Pleasant location

The property is located in a nice part of town, close to the La Lucia Mall and some restaurants, guests say. They give a heart thumbs-up to the great views they get over the ocean and the proximity to the beach as well.

Negative Reviews

Accommodation doesn't live up to expectations

First impressions can quite often be deceiving. Guests feel the guest house doesn't live up to expectations. They say the rooms don't match the online marketing photographs and the breakfast is not as good as it is promised in the publicity. The attitude of the host is not universally appreciated either and often seen as far from welcoming.

Noisy environment

After a hard day's travelling, all many guests want to do is relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. Many, however, are frustrated as the place can get very noisy. Much of this is caused by other guests and staff enjoying themselves in the bar or TV area, which can be heard throughout the property. The soundproofing between rooms also leaves a lot to be desired, reviews suggest.

Questionable cleanliness

Guests feel that the establishment isn't looked after as well as it could be and housekeeping isn't up to scratch. There are reports of stained linen and rooms not cleaned to a high standard.
