I would just like to say a BIG THANK YOU for hosting our Dinner last Friday night. We had a nice relaxing evening and the food and service was excellent! We were well received at reception and well taken care of by the waitrons on the deck. They were friendly and most helpful. We will definitely be returning

I would like to thank Umthunzi Hotel on behalf of my colleagues who celebrated decade in the Department of Correctional Service. My colleagues loved your menu. For me it will be my routine as always to support you , whether it Sunday lunch or spending couple days in your hotel - because I have fond memories since my first day I entered your premises
