    Everything, espcially peace and quiet and very central. I would give you 95% on rating.

    The breakfast should be a little more than the extremely basic. The hotel is not advertised enough. I tried to book online on various sites but it stated "no rooms were available". I managed to get a booking directly through your site.

    Exceptional

    The staff were absolutely amazing from the moment we arrived. We were treated to a corner room with beautiful sea views as per our request and were very impressed with the room, including the bed, views, toilet and shower (love the Hans Grohe fittings) and size of the safe which is intelligently designed to fit a laptop in for peace of mind. The breakfast was average but the deck overlooking the sea made up for that. We will use the hotel on all future trips to Umhlanga. Special mention must be made to Gordon in reception and his colleague on duty when we arrived (a black chap but cant remember his name, he's an awesome representative too), these guys played a big role in our experience.

    The breakfast was not good at all. The quality is poor, from the eggs to the fruit. At the reasonable rate per room one cannot expect a gourmet breakfast but the quality of what is on offer should at least be good. Still not enough to complain about or take away the fantastic service the staff and hotel offered us.

    Superb

    Great location and clean well kept hotel.

    I wish they could provide a "Halaal" breakfast and change the breakfast menu.

    Very good

    Easy accessibility to Umhlanga business parks and sea facing rooms have awesome views.

    It seemed that they had maintenance issues on several levels. One elevator wasn't working so the traffic on the other had us waiting for long periods. Tv wasn't working due to technician taking booster with him so they couldn't fix this. Breakfast was way below par.

    Exceptional

    The view! The helpfull friendly staff! The hygene! The comfortable bed and room! And everything at such a reasonable rate!

    1. Breakfast was bit of a traffic jam at the food counters- the order of the display of the food does not syncronise well and staff had to cut into the que to deliver whatever ran out. Tea/coffee is in a corner, u-turns do not work well for fluids. The kitchen ran out of baked beans and scrammbled eggs- then the eggs came and I eventually left without baked beans, having cold eggs. Milk is available in efficient jugs, but only at the cereals, so you walk to and fro to make a cuppa.Nothing wrong with the quality of the food though. I recommend to you to re-design your food service area. 2.Entrance to the hotel: the guards at the entrance are friendly, but unaware of new visitor's need to be directed to the parking area and procedure of entrance. We entered 'unrecognised' and had to walk to them to ask.

    Good

    Neat, well situated, freindly staff, good breakfast, clean rooms & beautifull view from the balcony.

    I have asked for a room facing the sea and our room was facing the back / swimming pool area. Parking fee should not be an added extra as there is not enough parking on the outside if one should wish not to pay. Access roads not well thought through.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Location was safe and close to a large shopping center. The staff were pleasant and the rooms were fit for purpose (nothing special though).

    Nothing much to complain about except that the shuttle prices were a bit expensive.

    Fabulous

    Sumptuous spread of Buffet Breakfast! Good views from the windows! Central location near Gate Way Mall! Good Privacy and Security Features! Courteous staff who allowed early Check-In and late Check Outs.

    We stayed at Holiday Inn Express - Sandton, Woodmead, Johannesburg for 3 nights and at Hotel Crowne Plaza, Sheikh Sayeed Road, Dubai also for 3 nights in the last 15 days. However, the Rooms at Durban property is somewhat cramped This is the only negative feature which can be looked into for new properties of Holiday Inn Express Group.

    Price & Location

    Road access only from 1 direction. Charge for internet usage in the room is outrageous. Charge for parking is too high

    Holiday Inn Express Umhlanga had everything we required to just relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of busy lives. The staff were wonderful and very friendly. Room and hotel were always extremely clean. We recommend this hotel highly and will be back in the future.
