Reviews for aha Gateway Hotel
This is a lovely upmarket hotel! From the moment you walk in the atmosphere is classy! The rooms are spacious, well lit, clean and well kept. The TV, Aircon, light switches, shower etc all work perfectly. This hotel is right next to a huge shopping mall so entertainment is sorted! It's perfect for shopping enthusiasts, foodies and movie buffs.
Nice comfortable hotel, breakfast is very nice and well organised. Have to get to their parking via the Gateway Mall parking garages, which is a bit confusing the first time, but easy by the second visit. Staff are nice, and helpful.
My first visit to South Africa to meet a client. A delightfully located hotel with extremely polite and courteous Management. The staff are so polite and kind. The locality this hotel is located in is quaint, very quiet and right next to a vibrant Mall. I look forward to visiting South Africa very soon.
Conveniently located near everything - shopping, entertainment, restaurants and night life. I'd held two events here and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this hotel for families and visiting couples.
Felt like a 4 star hotel, very neat, great service and great location. Attached to the gateway shopping centre, very convenient. We also took a walk to the garage, felt very safe. Breakfast had a good variety, easy check in and check out process.
Our stay at gateway was wonderful. Service & Staff at gateway hotel were we great.
Great rooms , great service and excellent environment
aha Gateway hotel is a 3 star hotel but feels more or less like a 4 star hotel. It is situated in Gateway, a 3min walk from the Gateway Shopping Center. The staff here are great, rooms are clean and look beautiful with lovely touch points like daily Lindt chocolates left on you pillow after a room clean and fresh towels folded into shapes of elephants. They have a standalone hot tub that stands out, placed almost in the middle of the room. Makes the room look premium and modern. The bathroom is part of the room. There is no divider/wall that separates the room from the shower, hot tub and basin. The toilet however is blocked off and there is a door for closure.This place is definitely great for it's price. I have stayed here on a business trip but it is affordable and good enough for me to consider coming back on holiday.
Lovely hotel. Friendly staff. Clean. Beautifully appointed. Ease of access for cars.
Lovely hotel in Umhlanga, conveniently joined to Gateway. Very accommodating, clean rooms and very spacious. Didn't get to try the breakfast but definitely will next time i book there! (I'm sure there will be a next time!) The only disappointment was parking availability. If hotel parking is full, you'll have to park in the Gateway mall underground parkade which is not the most secure in my opinion.
We got the smallest room which is extremely cold, the heater is not working - we requested blankets and the guy who brought them was so unfriendly and wasnt responding to any of the little talks my husband was making with him, we thought he was deaf but we recalled that he came earlier on to bring the first blanket and answered what I had asked. the toilet cant flush properly, the flusher and toilet paper are falling apart.But other than that the food is amazing...
Beautiful place.. however light lunch is extremely expensive
Good business venue. Restaurant serves up good meals as well.
Good hotel experience if you're travelling for business. Nothing fussy when checking in. The rooms are a good size, the amenities modern, and the location very convenient
Very friendly service and most accommodating, I got there earlier than the check in time and the lady at reception said she will try her best to have our room ready as soon as possible, which she did. The parking attended was also so welcoming and ever so helpful all the time. Rooms where neat and comfortable and had such a great view. All in all we had a very good stay and will definitely recommend AHA Gateway Hotel to friends and family.
I stay here 2 weeks a month for work and am generally impressed with the service of the staff, but the little things in the room bug me. I am very impressed with the service delivery. The night manager, Lee, does an exceptional job in ensuring that guests feel welcome and that the degree of service delivered by the wait staff at the restaurant and bar is tip top. The menu options at the fig tree can be improved on. I was not satisfied with my room as there were a few things broken. However the complaint was handled very quickly and professionally.
As per my previous visit, beautiful hotel. Pity the housekeeping staff don't take pride in how they clean the rooms. Sometimes grimy and often dull surfaces of what would otherwise be beautiful finishes. The restaurant has improved significantly, and a serene Sunday breakfast was unfortunately marred by the raucous singing of a choir over a very loud sound system in the marquee adjacent to the balcony. Fortunately I managed to enjoy the ambience without this noise on Saturday morning. Overall, very good value for money.
