We stayed at Redlands over Easter weekend. The room was adequate, the bed too soft. Wifi free but very slow. Our reservation included breakfast. The continental side of the breakfast was ok, on the one morning we ordered cooked breakfast and after 30 minutes food didn't arrive. We had to leave for an appointment. They did allow us a late...

Discreetly located within easy distance of most business appointments, Redlands Hotel provides a comfortable and fully equipped oasis for busy people in need of a quality evening meal, a sound sleep and excellent breakfast. Every member of staff is superbly trained and utterly professional.

A homely yet elegant, cozy hotel having colonial type overall ambience & architecture. The hospitality & service is outstanding providing personal touch to all guest. The Hotel Manager Paul deserves appreciation for his great work in setting cum maintaining such high standards in every department for at least the past 5 years since I am using this hotel.

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
