Had such an amazing experience at this hotel. Great service, all staff were friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was good and plenty to choose from. Rooms were spacious and very clean. Location is fantastic for the beach. Was there for two night for a conference.

This is a typical chain hotel but it is very clean and the staff are super helpful so for the price it is well recommended. Wifi is only in the main building which is annoying but it is a good connection and fast so cant complain too much.

It is a beautiful and neat budget hotel which is not too far from the waterfront. Staff members were friendly. The front desk staff need to spend more time at the reception area to avoid keeping customers waiting. We experienced problems with the electronic room key and the reception was already closed. Thanks to the security guard who was efficient... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights over the first weekend of November 2013. Great rooms. Spacious and bathrooms nice and big. Staff very friendly. The only downside was that we could not rest at all. Its the noisiest hotel ever. Our oom was located in a building which looks like a dormitory. Youngsters run past your room and... More

Not familiar with Richard's Bay we ask for advise on where to stay from people who often travel to Richard's Bay.

I found this hotel well positioned near all the amenities, although it does not offer a restaurant facility outside of breakfast. Internet is only available in the hotel foyer and not in the rooms as advertised. It is however a free service.
