Will not recommend this place
Our first room was faulty. The TV did not work. The toilet did not work. The plugs for charging did not work. Eventually after complaining twice, we were moved to a different room. This time the left hand bed lamp was broken and the shower quite dirty. The pool area is filthy. Absolutely disgusting. Your drinks at the bar are extremely expensive. R22.00 for a small coke is robbery. The break fast was very nice. Well done for that.

Lack of parking
There is not enough parking for the hotel guests and as a result wee had to park at the gateway mall parking. Which make it difficult to off load your luggage to take into hotel as it's a distance and there is no porter to assist with luggage.

Gateway Hotel delivers the goods once again
...and will be my preferred choice to stay at for future visits to KwaZulu-Natal. Super convenient for those who like to mix their shopping with their holidaying. The Go Wild waterpark is a hit with kids, with the beach being fairly close by as well. This hotel reminds me somehow of the Yas Viceroy Hotel in Abu Dhabi, of which I had the pleasure of staying at.
