I had an enjoyable stay! The room are comfortable, good breakfast as well as Sunday lunch, and a relaxing atmosphere. The staff was friendly and makes for a hassle-free stay. I would definitely use Umthunzi again.

The team is coming together. They are made me feel like part of the family and it is becoming more and more pleasant every time I stay there. All in all I stay in a lot of hotels and this is be far becoming the most pleasant of all the stay.

My family and I visited Port Shepstone during the last week of Nov and were not disappointed by our accommodation. It's less than 5 minutes drive to Tweni beach which has a perfect tidal pool for children. The decor is modern and chic and the staff are helpful and attended to our every need. Dinner tasted better than it looked...

Excellent service, friendly and helpful staff. Nice rooms. Food was good as well. The place is a bit far away from where I was having a function. The function was at Shelly Centre. I am certal that I will visit again.

Wish your had more Halal meals. Breakfast looked Devine but could only have eggs n bread. In the rooms you could have had a jug of chilled water in the evening. There's hot beverage but no biscuits to accompany it. Lovely hotel. Would like to bring my family for a weekend

Thank you for your kind words, unfortunately with our kitchen not being Halal this restricts us to what we offer, but please on your next booking give us sufficient notice and we will endeavour to ensure a better selection is available. Looking forward to welcoming you and your family back to the hotel.

I found the accommodation clean, practical, quiet, uncluttered, luxurious yet good value for money. The location is within 5 minutes walking distance from the beach and 3 minutes to the...
