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

Our first stay in this boutique-type hotel and it certainly won't be our last. Good location. Quiet (except for a few creaking floorboards and a bit of noisy plumbing). We had dinner in the hotel - good kitchen and chef. Willing and attentive staff. We opted for a Queen Suite, which was very roomy - complete with study alcove. A... More

Been visiting Pietermaritzberg for a good few years on business and always use this great little hotel. Really nicely finished throughout comfy beds and a great pool area next to the bar. Comfy beds, free wifi and cooked breakfast.

Very comfortable place to stay. We were only there 1 night so didn't have too much time to appreciate the full facilities but was perfect for our needs. Poor weather did not allow use of the pool and lovely gardens.

We stayed here after hiking in the Drakensberg mountains. It was a great place to chill. Lovely rooms, beautiful grounds and a lovely dinner. The staff were friendly and helpful and the owner came round at dinner to check personally that we had a good time

I have stayed here several times and found this time that it was starting to look a bit tired. There were various small things that needed fixing and should have not been left in the state they were . The manager was particularly friendly and keen to assist , as were the other staff . Room lacked a safe which... More
