Premier Hotel The Richards is a true landmark of the Zulu land area and is situated just 90 minutes North of Durban. One of the longest established hotels in Richards Bay, the Premier Hotel The Richards is well More renowned for its warm and welcoming atmosphere. The ideal destination for both business and leisure travelers, Richards Bay offers business guests a convenient location close enough to the CBD, yet far enough away from the city pressures to make business a pleasure. Leisure travelers are spoilt for choice: from the un-spoilt beaches, sub tropical climate and coastal conservation areas to the game reserves in areas like Hluhhluwe, Richards Bay Country Club and the Deep Sea Harbour.
