The rooms were great. Loved the set up however it was very noisy. The bar was directly below us so there was shouting until very late at night.

            check in was a nightmare. the check in staff told us that the hotel was full and we need to find alternate accommodation as he could not help us. after protesting that the accommodation was paid for in full and insisting on getting a room we were given a room This was done half an hour later. this is unacceptable

            Thank you so much for a very pleasant stay! I was impressed with the hotel, staff friendliness and facilities. T recently attended two conferences in Atlanta, Georgia. This conference compared very well. Catering and staff serving guests were outstanding. The two hotels in America can learn from Aha Gateway! I will definitely recommend the hotel to anyone travelling to Umhlanga.

            Style, rooms, Ambiance
            I received much more than I expected from what the hotel group calls a three star hotel. It compares with any other of the four star hotels in the area of the Gateway shopping complex. ON my day of departure I had a meeting with work colleagues, but did not require a meeting room or the like. The friendly staff informed me that I can use the sitting area at the back of the hotel as the area is fairly quiet during the day. What a welcome surprise to receive such service. The rooms are adequate on terms of size and infrastructure. I was travelling alone and it you travel with a companion which you may not be very comfortable with, the privacy may be a problem.

            This is not my first time staying at this hotel, and there's a good reason to come back. The hotel is at one of the best locations a traveler can have, directly connected to the Gateway shopping centre. However, the room is not that clean this time for some reasons. Otherwise, I would have given a higher score. Overall, this is a highly recommended hotel for anyone.

            This is by far one of the best hotels I've stayed in South Africa. THe service is great, the room is very new and big, with great equipments and definitely clean. The most notible thing on this hotel is its location- it is actually connected to the biggest shopping center in South Africa- the Gateway Mall (you exit the side entrance of the hotel, to enter gate 8, close to Toys'r'us) The staff was very helpful and professional- and what's even better, they give me free WIFI, which is a price saver for someone like me a business traveller. This is highly recommended hotel for a very good price- don't think, just go for it.

The hotel is amazingly modern and clean and is 2 min walk to the mall and have it's a back exit that connect it to the mall. We had to leave the hotel early to catch the flight at 6am, the staff were very kind and professional. They packed us breakfast to go and helped with the baggage. The staff portrayed very professional attitude and did everything to make our stay comfortable. The only thing we didn't like is the noise, our room was on the side of the main Street and we could hear every vehicle speeding , which went on till 2am. Ex

            I really enjoyed my stay at aha Gateway hotel. It is placed right next to the Gateway mall, which is quite big for the shopaholics. I can't stop thinking about the breakfast, absolutely delicious choices. The room is very neat and big enough for two. The staff are really friendly and were nice enough to give us a breakfast pack at 4am in the morning. It has very few TV channels however, so not a place you want to spend watching TV. All in all, a great experience!

            have been allocated at 1 / 2 hotels around umhlanga as a kzn doe employee. have always have a longing to visit the mall one day. the rates for the week-end were comparatively lower than other facilities outside of umhlanga which made me suspecious about the standard of the hotel. it was a pleasant surprise to observe that the hotel is of an even higher standard than I expected. the location, a walking distance, in relation to that of the mall was a cherry on top. an ideal location for a traveller who wish to visit umhlanga and the mall for the first time like myself.
