This place is beautifully located on top of the mountain, overlooking the town of Ladysmith, very good and ideal for conferences, weddings, birthdays and all sorts of functions. The rooms are well looked after, nice and clean, service is reasonable good and food is not bad.

They said this b&b is about one year old, the outside look very modern but the inside is disappointing. The room are dirty and marks are everywhere on the wall.

Duvet in the cupboard have no duvet cover, bed sheet is very dirty and have stain mark on.

Is a very bad management hotel, definitely not going back nor recommended.

Response from mtviewlodge1622, Manager at Mt View Lodge
Responded 28 Aug 2017
Good day Mr Lai, We apologise for the inconvenience experienced. The sheets are changed daily and the duvet in the cupboard was left there accidentally by staff. This will be taken up by housekeeping immediately. The room will be re-painted as we have started re-painting section by section. Once again I apologise profusely for the inconvenience experience and I promise you that this will not be repeated. Kind regards, Ranjie

I had booked a family room over the Easter weekend at Mt View to attend a family function in Ladysmith. paying a premium rate over this period.
Booking was made in February and deposit paid.
After checking in and I got to the room.
There was no windows in this room.
For light the door had to be kept open.
Insufficient beddings.
At breakfast there was no one to assist.
Cutlery was not very clean. A domestic toaster was provided to toast your bread.
On the morning of our second day we received a text msg, advising that there will be a function at the venue.
This function went on until 4am the next morning.
Music at full volume
When we tried to talk to the management team of Mt View we where totally ignored. Total disrespect. We had to move my 2 year old granddaughter to another room in which family was booked into. She could not sleep and was disturbed for a few days due to the loud music.
Had we been advised prior we would have booked other accommodation.
This party continued into the entire weekend.
The current owners of Mt View have absolutely no experience in the hospitality industry. From my Latest experience at Mt View, it seems that this establishment is no longer catering for accommodation but it is now rather a brothel setup.

We had a family function and needed a accommodation close to the function house so we booked in at Mt View. But to our surprise they informed us on the day they were having a function that there will be noise. So we said fine thinking that it would finish at midnight. When we get back to the venue around 2am they were still busy partying with complete disregard for the other guests staying there. We asked to be moved as we were right above the function room and they refused saying they are fully booked but they had room key hanging in the reception area. The rooms are filthy and not maintained. No hot water and the staff are very unfriendly. The staff was more interested in partying then assisting other guest. What got me was the complete disregard for the residence and other guests and also that they so comfortable broke the law by continuing the party till past 4am that morning. Disgusting service and people that run that place.

Mt View Lodge in Ladysmith offers breathtaking vistas, comfortable rooms, and top-notch service. It was truly a home away from home and I went there with my girlfriend for valentines and she can't wait for us to visit again. Thinking of celebrating our anniversary there

Place was dirty , staff are uncaring .and unhelpful. Felt very unsafe as someone tried to enter my room four times in the night . Icalled the reception several times in the night to tell them that someone keeps trying to open my door .There was no one there and my calls were not answered . I had to bolt the door down with chairs to ensure no one enters . I did not sleep at all that night . Guests were fighting all night. There was no evidence of any security or attempt to stop this fighting from management side as this went on till after 3 in the morning. The next morning there was broken bottles all over the place . Very unsafe place . I feared for my life . Staff could not be found at night and in the mornings . Complained to receptionist who put the phone down on me . I will never go back there and will never recommend this place to anyone . The service was terrible . Im just glad that I got out of there unharmed

I echo what another reviewer has said. The outside is impressive. You then enter. Everything feels and looks dirty.
The rooms are outdated, run down and simply horrible.
I almost electrocuted myself. I pulled out the bedside lamp to plug in my laptop. As I pulled it out, the shock went through me. It was a live wire.
Although the receptionist was friendly and got someone to come to the room, he didn't seem sure as to what he should be doing.
This place needs a complete revamp.
