On par with other hotels in same category, small areas to address to improve even further. No need to feel bad with regards to my comments. I just want you to focus on these mentioned areas as I plan to use this hotel again in the future.

We recently enjoyed a really wonderful and romantic couple getaway weekend at Bon Hotel waterfront. Our room was fantastic and had a jacuzzi size bath, 4poster king size bed and a balcony with a lovely view of Richards bay harbor. The warm reception and friendliness of staff made our stay extra nice and memorable and we got 4star service at our 3-course menu dinner. Regards, Betsy

My partner surprised me with a romantic getaway for our anniversary and booked at Bon Hotel Waterfront Richards Bay. We checked in and were given our room keys. We were excited and even joked about not leaving the hotel room for the whole weekend. We got to the room and it looked nice however there were no welcome notes, no welcome sweets or any of that special stuff that makes you feel really welcome. I proceeded to the shower and then realised there were no towels or soaps. He called and asked they be brought up. Eventually they brought the towels after about an hour. We decided to head out for dinner. We got back and as we were about to get into bed, we realised they only put 2 standard pillows on the bed. We checked for additional pillows and found 2 pillows without pillow cases. Alas we had to call again... We had to wait for another 30 minutes for those. He then suggested we also ask for an iron.. We had to wait yet again for that to arrive.. This hotel has terrible service and I was starting to hate being there. The next morning we left early and got back in the evening. The room was not cleaned properly. The cup I had left in the morning with water was still in the exact same place with the same water! I get to the bathroom and they left 1 towel for us to use. The bathroom is not tidy. Our mood is down because nothing about this hotel is special! What was meant to be a romantic weekend away at a "lovely" hotel felt like a waste of time, money and spoiled our vacation!
