After arriving at another hotel in town and being horrified I moved to Redlands. The manager (despite my late arrival) was so welcoming and gracious. He showed me to my room even before my voucher was through from the travel agent. The food was awesome (the oxtail was the best I've ever had) and wine but the glass excellent (which... More

A very relaxing and peaceful place to stay. The accommodation is spotless and the meals are good and well presented. The staff are also very friendly. All in all a great place. If the need arises to stay in Pietermaritzburg again - would definitely go back to Redlands.

Our room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The beautiful, well kept gardens and peaceful surrounds were a delight. We didn't feel as if we were in Pietermaritzburg!! The service on arrival could be improved. One expected to be assisted with taking bags to the room. However, this didn't distract from a thoroughly enjoyable stay. We also enjoyed our meals... More

Great venue, if one prefers to be away from the crowds - which I do when travelling. Wonderful and accommodating staff. I love the breakfasts. I will stay here all the time that I am in Pietermaritzburg.

The ice cream is fantastic! On one of those ridiculously hot PMB days I went to the hotel purely for the ice cream. The staff are always friendly and attentive , James or Paul are always on hand enquiring about the service , even if you are only having a bowl of delicious ice cream . My sons love the... More

I spent 1 night at Redlands during a business trip, and was very satisfied with my stay. My room was large, with a nice balcony facing the pool, and the green area around it. The hotel is very quiet, and very clean. My room was large & conformable. Yes, it is a bit dated, but I didn't find this issue... More

Thank the Pope we only stayed for one night. Room 15 was not clean at all. The toilet was dirty so was the shower and the window sills. The air con did not work and the carpets and chair in the room has not been cleaned in years. Curry lamb advertised with pompedoms etc. Well nothing of the sort was... More

Ideal for a quick business trip. The hotel is very quaint and peaceful. nice bar area and food was decent. The room is very tired though. One of the most expensive hotels in PMB, yet no flat screen TV? I think they could do with a make over.

The Staff is extremely helpful at all times. They always adress me by name. Impressive. Best place to stay when in Pietemaritzburg. The location of the hotel is great, easily accessible. I'd recommend it to everyone, whether it's for business or pleasure.

Very nice place. Staff always friendly but not the best in terms of service and attention to detail. Breakfast could also be a lot better. Juices were not great. Waited for a very long time to get milk for cereal. Happy overall and will definitely return but just a few improvements to a more professional staff service would make a... More
