A hotel if you are in Richards Bay with a reason
It seems that the only people who go to Richards Bay are on business, or are there to visit relatives. Not much of a tourist attraction! We were there to visit family-related locations. The hotel is far away from anything, which is OK if you have a car - which is the only way to get there! We were pleased with the hotel, which is easy to find, and were given a room overlooking the indoor courtyard. Very nice. Good food in the restaurant - which is very helpful, because there is nothing else around the hotel without going into the civic centre. The latter largely boasts fast food outlets.

MASSIVE Waste and Disregard for Water.
Pleasant enough hotel, but the amount of waste this hotel has is absurd - especially water-waste. You can hang your towel up, indicating you wish to use it again, but housekeeping takes it and gives you a new one (more laundry water waste). They throw out your hand soap from your room every day even though I only had used it once (huge waste again). Every time you ask for a little more coffee in the restaurant, they refuse to just pour more coffee into your mug, angryly insisting that you get a brand new clean cup. Same thing with your food plates - dont even try to use your fork for your omlette AND your fruit! No no no! We MUST give you a new one so that we can wash a billion more things, needlessly, while KZN is in a massive drought! (I'm not even particularly "eco-conscious" but this place is ABSURD.) Oh - and theres extremely limited free WiFi. If you're coming for business, go to another hotel.
