peaceful restful enjoyable and more over "Mnandilicius" a place where your mind , soul and body can re-connect and plan for the future without being disturbed or destructed. A place where everything is there when you're inside you don't think about the outside world .

This is a very relaxed and tranquil hotel with a keen sense of high quality and friendly service form staff. It is very suitable for both business and family accommodation as there is a separate self catering section for families on holiday. My room did not have a great view but I believe other rooms have fantastic view as this... More

Nice rooms, good restaurant and friendly service, not always perfect, but charming staff.The bar needs an update and more comfortable seating - in fact it is better to take your drinks to the quite charming reception foyer, where it is advised to sit if you want to have a good wifi receeption, as it is rather weak in other places....

Chose Redlands as an overnight spot for the amashova cycle race. Exceeded my expectations in terms of comfort, friendly service, great food and they even set up the boardroom for us to watch SA boks in the RWC quarter finals.

One of the best hotel in Pietermarizburg. Very good location and very impressive garden. Very good reception maid. Very good except for the pillow is a bit of hard. If the hotel can supply chinese food, that would be better.

This smaller hotel has a great atmosphere, very relaxed and almost in the centre of Pietermaritzburg in a safe, park like business estate. Large rooms with a large comfortable bed, luxurious bathroom and plenty cupboard space, if you need it. All amenities are provided incl. a large pool. Staff was friendly and helpful.

This classy hotel offers it all. Business meetings are always relaxed and presentations very good. Enjoy a cappucino next to the pool! The rooms are beautifully decorated and the setting tranquil and beautiful.

Redlands Hotel provided the British Cycling team with exactly what was required for our event. Hotel staff and facilities were high quality and athletes were made to feel 'at home' and really enjoyed our stay. Will be our hotel of choice for our return in 2017 for World Championships.

I am not someone who generally comments or complains. My wife and I stayed overnight whilst in Pietermaritzburg. Overall the hotel was very pleasant and the room was comfortable. However there were a few disappointing issues. When we arrived at 3pm in the afternoon, our room had not been properly made up. There were no pillow cases on the pillows... More

Having the opportunity to travel and experience different locations, cultures and sights is a luxury, and I am fortunate that I am able to do all of the above. I haven’t been to Pietermaritzburg for many years and coming here this time has produced some unexpected treats. We were booked into the Redlands Hotel & Lodge, in a suburb called... More
