Great hotel with friendly and helpful staff, premises are great - well kept, updated and neat, great conference facilities and excellent food. Housekeeping staff do a great job of keeping rooms clean and stocked with supplies. Not the best location though; it is located in what seems to be a semi-industrial area but it is safe.

Transport tip: if arriving at the Richards Bay airport be sure to either rent a car or book a taxi to pick you up BEFORE your departure. There are no for hire taxis at the airport and the hotel does not offer a shuttle service. If not, there aren’t any pay phones either so you’ll have to have a mobile phone and wait a while depending on car availability.

This hotel has all the basics. Rooms were comfortable and had everything we needed. Food was also better than we expected. Staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately thats where it ends. In a very dodgy area and there is nothing to do at the hotel. There is an tiny pool and then it is attached to the casino. So if you don't gamble you are going to be very bored.

I booked on sat (26/05/18) for my wife and i because i wanted to treat her to the ladies night that was being held there. The checkin was very good and our room was clean. We spent most of our time away from the room so we did not notice that the air con was not working. Anyway sunday morning we decided that we will spend another night, so my wife called up the fornt desk and ask if it could be sorted out. They did send someone but he did not no himself wat was going on. All he said was its working now. So we go to the casino and 5 hours later we go back and the room is still hot. Phoned again and the guy in the fornt says that we are to rude and he will not help us and cuts the call. My wife goes personally to see wat was the problem only to be told the same thing and the guy was to rude that he says he will not help us and there is nothing we can do about it. I have booked in this hotel more than 8 times and have never been treated liked this before. This guy just spoilt our week end and we will never be returning

This place is not at the same level as other Peermont hotels. It is actually sad. It could do with just some good up-keep. We thankfully had a complementary night stay so we didn't have to pay for it, otherwise it would have been more painful. It served as a good stopover on our trip but I doubt would return. The breakfast in the morning was hit and miss. The Cold meat and cheese platter was stale while the muffins and scones were rock hard. Would not stay here unless I absolutely have to

My overall view of the hotel, was very excellent. Received the Warm welcome, friendly and helpful staff from reception to the room itself, conducive working environment and nice foods at breakfast plus dinner at the restaurant. I had little bit of entertainment at the casino and live jazz music at my choice.

I stayed at the Metcourt at Umfolozi for business, I usually stay in Richards Bay. However, I was very very pleased with the quality of service, tidiness of the room, excellent breakfast. My only complaint was don't stay in a even numbered room, as it opens out to the carpark that services the casino, whereas the odd rooms open to an internal courtyard. The shower was excellent with a rainmaker shower head. The price very competitive at R950 including breakfast. I will stay here in the future when visiting Richards Bay.

Very Good;
Accommodation prices are reasonable;
The dining court is clean and well designed;
The railings on the stairs will help with safety from falling over;
The food in the UMoja restaurant consisted of only lamb or beef curry on the 3 nights that I spent at the hotel; Some fish or chicken on the other day is suggested because many people now eat more white meat.

We are huge fans of the Peermont products and this hotel is no different. The unfortunate part of the hotel is the location, with limited views and activities. Keeping in mind that this is a 3 star hotel, the hotel definitely surpass its rating. Hotel reception Staff are friendly and professional, clean rooms with basic amenities. The complex also offers a casino and restaurant with great selection of fast food options. You have the choice of having your breakfast inside or on the outside area overlooking a small splash pool. Room rate is acceptable and the Hotel is definitely recommended for an overnight stay. The only downside to the hotel is that the "walls are extremely thin" and noises from load guests are disturbing at times.

My wife and I visited family in Richards Bay and decided to sleep over in this hotel which is close by. Upon our arrival we were greeted at reception in a very welcoming way. The reception area was very clean and tidy and check-in was completed in less than 5 minutes. Upon entering our room we found it very clean and neat and it also had a fresh smell to it. The room layout was good and all furnishing was in very good condition. The bathroom, although rather small, was very clean and a variety of complimentary toiletries was provided. The room had a fully stocked tea/coffee station that included milk sachets. A safe and hair drier were also provided. The food quality provided by the hotel was of a high standard. A buffet breakfast turned out to be very tasty and provided a variety of dishes. Ben who manned the egg station was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Senzo, the Food and Beverage manager also visited our table to ensure that we were satisfied. The amount of pastries available was however much less that what most Peermont Metcourt hotels provide. All the staff that we dealt with including housekeeping, was very friendly.
The casino is quite small and not as crowded as some of the bigger ones.
The only negative experience was the very noisy disco on the ground floor. It continues till midnight on Saturday evenings and has a sound system that sends vibration waves through the entire hotel, which I am sure would register on the "Richter Scale" !. After midnight the disco visitors still have a lengthy and very noisy farewell in the parking area, right in front of the rooms, keeping many visitors awake.
