Harrismith Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Harrismith
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Room was decent and clean. Bed was comfortable and accomodation suited it's purpose.

Dinner a disapointment. Despite being almost fully booked due to a soccer match being held in Harrismith - there was no carvery option and the a-la carte choice was limited to 2 x steak options 1 x fish & 1 x chicken. NO VEGETARIAN option for main course. Upon querying I was not even offered a plate of vegetables at reduced price. Management were apologetic and agreed that 2 steak options was not good. Note that there is a chain franchise restauarant just outside the carpark so there are options.

Room Tip: Rooms either overlook the pool or the carpark.

Reviewed December 20, 2010

On arriving at approx 1400 on Dec 19 we asked if we could get something to eat only to be told that as it was a Sunday the dining room and bar were closed. However there was room service. When we got to our room we tried to call room service without success. Finally got hold of the lady on reception duty who informed us that there was no room service now but there would be at 1830 for approx 2 hours. When asking for help she said there was a Spur just at the garage around the corner from the hotel. The room service menu had, if I remember correctly, only 2 or 3 meals or you could have a sandwich. If you do not wish to cater for guests I would suggest that you close the place on a Saturday and Sunday. I expect some sort of decent service from a 3 star hotel that charges R645 for a room. I also asked if they had any literature on things worth seeing in the area and they had nothing at all, not one. The breakfast at R70 per person is daylight robbery to say the least. A little scrambled egg and two small bits of bacon and 1 slice of toast. We asked for more toast and got it but maybe one should be asked how many one would like. If we wanted anything at all we had to call someone. Nobody offered to get coffee or tea or told us to help ourselves to juice etc. Zip, nothing. This has been my worst hotel experience ever and I will certainly never stay there again and will not recommend the place to any friends. The staff on reception after 1600 on the Sunday were pleasant and polite. Whereas the lady that checked us in couldn't have cared less whether or not we were there and was certainly not at all helpful.
