REVIEW: Holiday Inn Express Umhlanga

The Holiday Inn Express Durban-Umhlanga hotel is located on Umhlanga Ridge, a few minutes drive from the Umhlanga beaches and minutes from Gateway Theatre of Shopping.
The contemporary Holiday Inn Express Durban-Umhlanga’s curving facade faces the Indian Ocean, showcasing spectacular sunrises each morning.

This peaceful hotel is 10km from Durban’s vibrant city centre and rail station, and 13km from King Shaka International Airport.
Leave your vehicle in their secure underground car park when you attend meetings or seminars.

The maritime theme continues in our Great Room, with its ornate sea shell decor, where a complimentary Express Start Breakfast buffet is prepared each morning. Meet over Castle beers on their Great Room bar’s veranda before grill suppers at the Butcher Block steakhouse, next door to Holiday Inn Express Durban-Umhlanga.

We recently sent Bernadene and her family to the Holiday Inn Express to find out what the hype was about. Here’s what she had to say about the experience:

“All the staff were extremely friendly and their main focus was always on our 3 year old daughter, Ava!
The lady at reception phoned us within 5 minutes of getting into the room to see if the bed had been set up for Ava, which it had! A big thumbs up here for service. 👍

We had a beautiful, sea-facing room which made the stay that much better. There’s nothing like waking up to a beautiful view!
The room itself was nice and cozy, with enough space for all of us and a lovely modern bathroom with a massive shower – as well as coffee and tea in the room that was refilled everyday.

The best part of our weekend was the incredible breakfast! There was honestly anything you could think of – and again their main focus was on Ava with some of the staff entertaining her around the tables.

The quality of the food was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

If you’re looking for a place to stay for a family weekend away, the Holiday Inn Express is ideal and comes highly recommended!”
