Reviews for City Lodge Umhlanga
Basic but comfortable. The location is great but parking is very poorly sign posted. Reception weren't that helpful either and didn't offer to help with many bags I was carrying. Wifi also poor to use for business video streaming.
Perfect location, just outside Gateway shopping center main entrance. Lively atmosphere day and night. Safe parking, clean and comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Will visit again.
We've stayed here 3 yrs in a row and never been disappointed! Staff are super friendly, rooms are well maintained and clean. Keep it up!
Home away from home.I have been staying at the City Lodge Hotel many nights and many days for nearly 8 month.Excellent view to the Gateway mall.Several restaurant choice.The staff are very profesdional,friendly and helpful. Room are nice and large. The Breakfast team are efficient the food is fresh and good. Congratulations to this Hotel that consistently delivering very good service. I am looking forward to return back.
One of the best City Lodge layouts on the ground floor. Lovely lounge area and hotel located at the main entrance of the Gateway Centre of Shopping.
Decent size room close to the mall which is nice albeit a little noisy. Bed mattress was in bad shape which is the most important comsideratin for booking a hotel when you travelling. Breakfast also not fully halaal which considering the location is very dissappointing.
The best service in Kzn.from Staff to Management. My best experience of all my hotel's on my National travels for work.keep up the good service and standards. See you all soon.
Comfortable hotel and friendly staff. Great location right in the middle of all the restaurants. I would suggest asking to not be on the first floor close to the hotel dining area. It is quite noisy until late and again from early morning.
Very pleasant reception, centrally located within walking distance of Gateway mall. Excellent view of the crowd a bit noisy till late at night but still good value for money.
The staff is fabulous, very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean and rooms are spacious and well equipped .
Good service. Great rooms. Only issues I ever have is poor wifi connection and chairs at desk in room always seems unsteady and flimsy
The City Lodge is well located with easy access to Gateway mall which includes the usual high street clothing stores and restuarants.
Really nice hotel. Great location by the mall. I didnt have a chance to stay long buy the important things like, super comfy bed, great air con (because Durban is very humid) and super friendly staff.. cant comment on the breakfast because I didnt try it but it's a great place
Very central to the business meetings I had to attend. Experienced the night life at Gateway mall. Safe and secure.
Check in was too long as they couldn't find my booking made through Safarinow
City Lodge Umhlanga might just as well be a 5 star hotel and not a 3 star. The cleanliness - impeccable. The service from porters, cleaners, reception, dining and information very helpful and resourceful. They worked well with Road Lodge as I could not park my vehicle in their designated parking due to height (2.1m max), Road Lodge arranged for parking at the Gateway Mall which they in turn arranged for free parking. Breakfast excellent! Parents of 80 and 76 years old was very spoilt and taken care of by staff - a real pleasure. My only disappointment - I was assured that breakfast was included in my price paid by Safarinow when I called and when I called ahead to the Hotel for clarification, only to be charged R 1000.00 for breakfast on checkout! I think you need to make it clear that NO meals are included in the price paid. I specifically called ahead to check and rechecked, thus my disappointment. Otherwise, I would certainly stay there again.
