Mixed feelings
Beautiful hotel with friendly staff. I was however slightly perturbed by the size of the rooms, they are very small. I was also unhappy that there was no complimentary water and the fact that you only get 300MB Wi Fi per day where most other hotels offer uncapped.

Helpful friendly staff
Very helpful and friendly staff, nice rooms and good facilities on ground floor. Room overlooked a busy noisy road and the aircon was quite loud, but hotel moved us on the second night to a much quieter room overlooking the courtyard. The courtyard was a nice space but barely used or promoted. Location handy for main shopping and restaurants but our preference would have been to be nearer the waterfront which was 25mins walk away.

A Pocket Friendly Hotel, with Good Food !!!
Good stay, a basic hotel which is located at a premium location, minutes away from Gateway Mall, all shopping and eating destination in uMlanga area. If you are here for work or a tourist who will be spending the day outside and come back to have nice food and get a good night sleep, then this hotel is the perfect place to stay. Just across the hotel is a fuel / gas station which has a convenio store to get your daily needs stuff, just Incase you have forgotten them, they also sell beer in the store !!!
