Hotel staff is very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast team was very proficient. Attention to details. Neatly dressed. Superb service! The hotel is also perfectly located in the Umhlanga area, not far from the beach, approximately 5 minutes drive, depending on the traffic of course.

From check in right through to check out this was one of the most pleasurable hotel stays I have had in a while. The wifi was excellent and the staff always friendly although not always helpful, especially with regards to rewards discounts at the bar.
