Crinkley Bottom Park offers a great place to stay, whether you are staying overnight or for a month. With easy access to Durban and Pietermaritzburg, it offers a central base in quiet surroundings. Situated on a crest of hills in the heart of Durban, Waterfall offers a wide range of attractions, along with beautiful accommodation and spectacular views. Just 45 minutes from the thriving beaches and city centre of Durban, the suburb offers a tranquil retreat set on plenty of green rolling landscapes that, in its earlier days, housed farmlands and very little in the way of development. Once a tiny hamlet, the area is today a popular tourist destination for business travel, weddings and holidays.

Crinkley Bottom Park offers a small, yet excellent number of rooms situated on the premises, acting much like a guest house. This is ideal for evening events and conferencing. We have ten tastefully decorated rooms available for guests, both twin and double. Each room is en suite with tea and coffee making facilities. Other facilities open to our guests include the children’s play area, two swimming pools and a licensed bar and restaurant. We have recently added a pool table and Slot Machines for those feeling a little ‘Lucky’.
