Lovely hotel with beautiful fittings. The gardens and pool area is beautifully maintained. Reception staff could be a bit more professional and friendly. Breakfast selection is not huge, but the food arrives hot and within a reasonable time. Some rooms are well appointed whilst others are a bit small and could have a bit of traffic noise on weekdays as... More

I was staying for my High School reunion just up the road in Hilton. I wanted something as close to Hilton (the village and School) as possible. Given everything in the village had been booked, I wanted something comfortable but still convenient. I managed to stay in a suite on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool. The room was very,... More

We felt very welcome! The staff were amazingly friendly and in tune with our needs. Manager was on the ball too, looking at minor detail. Room was great, big and clean. TV's could be upgraded. Wouldnt go for a room at the back on the ground floor, no view, look onto a brick wall. We moved to the front room... More

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.

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.
