Thank you for all the assistance with the booking of my stay at Holiday Inn Express Umhlanga.

My Wife and I enjoyed every moment and were very impressed with the hotel. It was an excellent choice.

We look forward to future stays and will definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Once again, thanks and have a good day.

The stay was lovely, I just don't understand why the hotel has no wardrobe or somewhere to put clothes, it is not like there is no space.

In fact the style of furniture in the hotel is deliberately not catering for such space. I was there for 4 nights and my closes were a mess.

Also think of a small hotel shop which would sell ornaments and goodies as well as chips and snacks.

The staff is lovely and friendly.

Thanks

1. Location: great and central
2. Friendliness: excellent
3. Value for money: excellent
4. Cleanliness: excellent
5. Overall impression: excellent

Must be sure of the rooms that have been given to customers, I was disturbed having a shower in one of the room (room no: 134) that was still under my name but given to somebody else at the same time.
