I was surprised at how nice this hotel is. My room had a lounge separate from the bedroom. Stunning views. Spacious. Nice breakfast. Friendly staff. It is situated close to town and ideal for business trips.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am very surprised regarding the issue of hot water. We did have an issue with a compressor failing on a heat pump which I was made aware of and we immediately blocked the room for maintenance. Additional hotel rooms were available during your stay and there should never have... More

Absolutely wonderful .... in every way. A serene, scenic and very secure setting. Polite, cheerful and attentive staff. Truly superb dining in the property's atmospheric restaurant. Who could ask for more? A great find and the best possible way to finish off an unforgettable month exploring several of South Africa's many parks and game reserves.

Was looking forward to stay after having stayed on 3 different occasions over the years. really disappointing around 'atmosphere' and in general re some attention to detail lacking! I firmly believe this was due to lack of supervision or management and general lack of attention to detail.

Could not fault the service, comfortable bed, excellent food and wonderful staff plus the unrivalled setting. My visit was a nostalgic one and I could not have asked for more, the position of the hotel was the dye of my former home in 1955!

Slightly pricy but a comfortable stay with clean and spacious rooms. The hollondaise sauce was curdled for the eggs benedict for breakfast! Otherwise the food was reasonable. It served us well as a stop off between Durban and the Drakensberg.

The spacious bedroom, with balcony overlooking the pool is one reasons I return to Redlands. It is as if I were in a gracious home, rather than a hotel. Staff were wonderful and I look forward to seeing them again. An oasis of calm in the city, landscaped gardens and great venue to meet up with friends or entertain clients.... More
