Neat, convenient and affordable accommodation in Richards Bay. Pleasant and hospitable staff. Very accommodating with breakfast request. Airconditioned rooms were very effective, especially during the summer period that we were there. The pool table needs attention/replacement. Wifi service not good at the rooms. No mention of the rewards program at check in or check out.

Good day Thank you very much for taking the time to review us and providing us with feedback on your stay. I apologize to hear that we were unable to meet expectations and failed to provide the standard of service that we are justifiably proud of. Our family rooms are one open plan room with a double sleeper couch, it is not a two beadroom and it is always best if you are travelling with kids to book an interleading room so that you are comfortable.

We booked this hotel for myself and some of my colleagues, including a conference room. On arrival, the receptionist mumbled everything that we needed to know without even making eye contact with us. When we got to our rooms, the cards that were suppose to open the doors, were not working. When requesting for lunch the lady who assisted us made it sound like it was too much of an effort to supply us with lunch. The staff that was making breakfast the following morning were rude and unhelpful. The rooms only has enough coffee for one person and it does not get replaced. Aircons are in poor working condition. No wifi available, after expressly stating that they have wifi. The garden is not being maintained. The lunch that we ordered and paid for in advance for ourselves and our clients were not enough - 5 people did not even get lunch, because there were none left. The staff at this hotel is very unfriendly and not helpful at all. I will never book this hotel again, either for personal or business trips. Altogether a bad experience.

Good day SB3090, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your stay, albeit a disappointing read. I apologize that you feel this way about your experience. I am troubled as this is a contradiction to the telephonic conversation that I had this morning with you conference organizer. The rest of the Team, as well as the directors, were very happy with their stay and service levels experienced. A big compliment was given to our chef and her team for outstanding food during your stay. We were advised that they wish to book more events at our establishment in the near future. I have brought a few of your concerns to the attention of your group organizer, who advised that they will follow up with you in order to get more clarification on your experience at our property and how it differed. I do hope that your next stay with us will be more enjoyable. Please feel free to contact me directly should you have any further questions or concerns. Kind Regards Justin Maurel justin.m@premierhotels.co.za
