Definitely the best hotel group for short stay in South Africa. Friendly people, great food and well-designed rooms. Thoughtful design, uncomplicated and very user friendly with sea view. My choice for business travel.

The place was clean, the staff was efficient. Enjoyed my stay. There was confusion regarding the basement parking. Front desk said parking is paid for on check out but the security advised that basement parking is free on first come first served basis.

Thank you for your feedback from your recent stay with us. We are so pleased our hotel met with your requirements, and you found our Hotel Staff to be so efficient. We are very sorry to hear of the confusion caused regaridng Parking. All undercover parking at the Hotel is paid for parking, and there are limited open bays, before the entry boom gates that are free parking for guests. We certainly regret any inconvenience this miscommunication has caused.

Hi, i've never used the shuttle but Uber is readily available from the airport to Holiday inn Express Umhlanga, cost should be around R200 though so perhaps not the cheapest option. I am not sure what the meter taxi operators charge bu there are many available at the airport.

"Not worth paying extra for sea views as there is a huge construction site on the property in front of the hotel."
"best views, quiet"
"I think the sea facing rooms would be good though ours was partial sea view."
"Ask for a sea view"
"Lots of building work in surrounding area, so choose higher floors overlooking pool."
