I had to request towels 3 times and it took around 40 minutes for them to be brought to me. No hot water - luke warm which also took ages to arrive. Toilet did not flush !!! At all… Sorry but I will not stay here again, nor will I recommend it to anyone else.

Peaceful setting and easily accessible. Attentive and friendly staff. Clean, pleasant and spacious rooms. Great food and whisky selection. Wi-fi access throughout the hotel was a bonus. Will use this hotel next time I am in PMB without hesitation.

We stayed for 1 night at Redlands as a stop over en-route to Durban. The hotel is conveniently located on the outskirts of Pietermaritzburg. Our room was quite simple but nicely decorated and well kept, overlooking the pool. We ate our evening meal in the restaurant and the food was quite good. Not too pricey and a good option for...

As a repeat customer to Redlands I have not yet had anything to complain about. The service, food and rooms are excellent as is the setting and location. The staff are always friendly and eager to assist.

Staying at The Redlands is always a treat! Staff are friendly, rooms are comfortable and spacious and the hotel is conveniently situated near to many of the excellent Natal schools. We also thoroughly enjoyed a lovely dinner in the restaurant that evening! The curry and lamb shank were both excellent! Will definitely stay there again!

We booked for dinner in Redlands restaurant on the 19th December for Michael's birthday. We were handled with the utmost care by Nomusa (reception) and Hazel (restaurant) & the food was beautiful. Lovely tranquil setting. We will definitely go back again.

Service was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable. Perfectly located just out of reach of the busy and noisy city. The hotel has all the expected facilities. Loved the pool. No complaints.
