Ideally situated next to the upmarket Gateway shopping and entertainment complex, City Lodge Umhlanga Ridge blends into the surroundings of its modern environment. Durban is just minutes away on the adjacent freeway, as is the city’s international airport. The five-storey hotel is in the heart of the new business district that has emerged in the Umhlanga area. It is also a short drive from Umhlanga’s popular promenade and beach front.

Nice neat spacious hotel room with good free fast wifi. Great breakfast selection. The hotel is in walking distance of numerous restaurants in the Gateway shopping centre. The staff are very attentive. A really nice hotel to spend a couple of day while on business.

If you take a twin room (2 x queen beds) then yes you will be able to. Just make sure you specify the fact that you would like to share and they will be able to accommodate you. Happy traveling!

Hi Shaun, you need to call ahead and ask to reserve the twin room with sleeper couch. My 7 year old slept comfortably on it. I would say if they are lean 11 and 12 year olds they will be comfy on the sleeper couch
