I stayed there as it’s located close to businesses I was meeting with. Unfortunately my apple devices didn’t work well with their WiFi and at huge annoyance I couldn’t work from the room at all. Other than that great staff and clean hotel. Can highly recommend.

Stayed for one night prior to an early flight back to UK (07.35) - all worked well. Their taxi firm was more than prompt. Staff, and room - all as you would expect from Holiday Inn Express. Would stay here again.

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.

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.

"Make sure you are not charged for a sea facing room as most rooms are currently blocked by contruction site."
"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"
