Wasn't impressed with the host as I travelled with my colleague who is a white Afrikaner gentlemen. upon arrive the Host told my colleague that she will put him in a room on the other side and I was put in a small single room. Later that evening I went over to my colleagues room , only to find that she put him a nice big room that had a separate room which had a little kitchen net and lounge area. Sorry but they will never get my or my companies business in future. We are frequently down in Richardsbay and I work for the larges It company in Africa.

Hello Thank you for your review. We really are sorry that you had unpleasant stay, but please note that the agencies pre booked the rooms and we did not choose in what room you stayed in. I do ask that you would give us another chance and when the booking is made, please ask for room 1, 3 or 7 as they have the kitchen attached. You are welcome to contact me via email or phone which is provided on our website if you have any more queries. Kind regards Manfred

Hello Thank you for your review. I am terrible sorry to hear that you did not have a goodt stay. I know when you moved in the aircon was not working and did advise you, but it should have been fixed and we do apologise for that. Before your check in, the wifi was working, as well as the TV. I know everything should be perfect, but these things do happen. Please in future please contact me if there are any issues and I will sort them out immediately. Kind regards Manfred

I had not been to Richards Bay for a few years and was no longer familiar with the accommodation on offer so I chose the Duck Inn blind! The booking somehow was not recorded but when I arrived I was nonetheless met and given "The Cottage" which exceeded all my expectations and requirements. A large dining/living room cum kitchen and a spacious bedroom were more than I needed but the fridge and coffee facilities were very welcome. The beed was comfortable and the bathroom fulfilled all its functional requirements. Breakfasts were adequate for the very reasonable price for the 4 days I stayed and the central location of the Duck Inn made going out for dinner or fast food no problem at all. The only beef is with the internet which was very slow at times and made staying in touch a little difficult, but this may not be the Duck Inn's fault. All in all a place to be recommended

Rooms are beautiful and spacious. Staff very friendly and helpful, we had a challenge to check in earlier and the owner was so kind to let us arrive earlier, without additional cost. I will suggest underroof car ports for blazing sun.
