REVIEW: Town Lodge Umhlanga


Town Lodge Umhlanga is the latest addition to this ever growing, vibrant town. Conveniently situated on the corner of Umhlanga Ridge Boulevard and Meridian Drive in Umhlanga Rocks, KwaZulu-Natal.

Town Lodge Umhlanga has a fresh identity that is set to secure its share of future markets to this busy region. 

It’s a place where people stay, meet and relax. The hotel welcomes guests to a renewed design concept across four floors and, as with all CLHG properties, includes rooms designed to meet the special needs of the disabled.

We were recently invited to experience a stay at this wonderful lodge.

“Upon arrival, we were impressed at how easy the check in process was. From the moment we walked into the lodge, we had the most incredible hands on service.

Before checking in, we had to sanitise and fill in Covid forms which made us feel a little more at ease and looked after. We were handed our keys and immediately went up to our room to offload our luggage.

A warm welcome awaited us in the form of the sweetest hamper we’ve ever seen. Filled to the brim with sweets. chocolates and water, along with a note from the general manager herself.

After we freshened up, we made our way down to the bar to indulge in their wide selection of bar snacks and drinks. We felt as if we were right at home, seated comfortably in their dining area with a glass of wine in hand.

One thing we loved about this lodge is that we had plenty of space to move around and lounge at. It’s also a great place to work remotely from too, and there were plug points provided for this.

For dinner we opted for their pizza menu in the comfort of our own room. Within 30 minutes of ordering, our pizzas had arrived.
Talk about fast service!

Needless to say we slept well that night.

Breakfast was delicious – with an assortment to choose from. We opted for fruit & yoghurt, complete with a yummy cooked omelette.
Served with a warm cup of coffee.

Town Lodge Umhlanga is within close proximity to the beach, Gateway Theatre of Shopping and Durban, and a 15-minute drive from King Shaka International Airport.

Other notable features include two boardrooms (16 pax and 14 pax), swimming pool and parking bays for 110 cars.
