Apologies that you did not have a comfortable sleep. Unfortunately with the hotel being in the CBD the noise levels can at times be a bit noisy. We are in the process of renovating and replacing all our linen. Once a guest checks out the rooms are cleaned and aired.The musty smell could have been from the very humid weather... More

What a pleasant experience we have had! We booked at a resort in Drakensburg but on arrival decided the resort was totally not up to standard so we decided to push on to the next town where we found Howick Hotel. They were R600 less expensive and 100 times better than where we have booked. I will highly recommend them... More

Very clean and neat. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not worth the money.money . Could have had better value for money at a Wimpy. This was not a real continental and English breakfast combination. Expect more. HHotel was fine. Maybe add on a mini bar or at least a vending machine to purchase cold drinks and water

We stayed at the Howick Falls Hotel for a wedding in the area. Great service and the rooms were in great condition! We were for one night only but would have stayed longer if i could! Many things to do in the area. Breakfast at the hotel was also great.

We had a wedding early in December in Umchlanga and needed a place to stay over after driving through late from Johannesburg to KZN. We arrived quite late and booked into the smallest room for 2 people sharing. The sheets were stained and we were so relieved that we had packed our own pillows. During the night, there were people... More

Thank you for your post. We are extremely sad that you did not enjoy your stay in our hotel. We acknowledge that some of the rooms may be on the small side, but they are perfectly adequate for an overnight stay. This is a very old, historic building, and it was impossible to increase the sizes of all the rooms.... More

Howick falls hotel is pretty much your standard hotel in the middle of Howick town. The hotel is clean. I must admit I did not like the scent of the cleaning product they used. I do not like hotels (preferring bnb's) but I had to stay here for work. The rooms are pretty small and my windows looked out into... More
