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.

Very plain and basic.
I expected more for my money.
It would have helped if the tv had more than one channel.
The restaurant staff was very friendly and helpful but the menu was disappointing.
The reception staff was awesome.

In conclusion, nothing wrong with the place but I will give it a skip next time.

I was pleasantly surprised with such a great value for money at the Bay shore Inn. Its actually operated by Protea Hotels and was not surprised with such great service overall.

You certainly get your money's worth for under R500 per night and I was definitely happy with that.

I stayed at the inn on a Sunday, and then the following Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. On the Sunday I was booked into my own little cottage - was very nice. Spacious, clean and generally no complaints. The other two nights, however, I was booked into a room in a building that was very university residence-like. Two single beds, no proper ventilation (so it is stuffy) and noisy in the passage. Access card also didn't want to work the first time. On the first night there was also a school staying there, and it was very noisy - they woke us up early the next morning. As this is not necessarily the inn's fault, it just serves as an indication of the guests it caters for - more family-based. Not for you if you are looking for a very fancy, quiet and isolated room for a business trip or romantic getaway (according to me). That is why I give the inn a 3-star rating - it wasn't unbearably bad, but it wasn't "wow" good either. Alright.

This is a tidy very comfortable room. The rooms are kept clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
We had a good stay. The only problem we had was that it was very noisy from about 08:00 in the morning.

Quaint little hotel next to the Richard. Very comfortable. Outstanding food quality. No traffic in the area, very quiet. Close to the beach and the Waterfront. I stayed in a Rondavel which is a novel experience. Wi-Fi in the room wasn't available but maybe there is Wi-Fi in the main Hotel. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom light didn't work, some minor repairs necessary. TV didn't work but that improves the peace!

We picked this hotel via a third party internet booking service. It was a last minute booking and we didn’t get the normal directions, address etc. Google maps does not recognize the name Splendid Inn Bayshore, possibly because it used to be called something else, however the people at The Richards (where Google Maps directs you) were very helpful.
The hotel itself is clean, adequately appointed and the restaurant is basic but the food is good.
Overall both the restaurant and accommodation are excellent value for money & if management had only changed the signage etc. to reflect the correct name I’d have given 5 stars not 4

Good day Orcun T, Thank you very much for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your stay, it is greatly appreciated. I must begin by apologizing for the poor service levels that you experienced during your stay with us, this is not what we are justifiably proud of. I assure you that I will investigate this matter further and devise a remedial plan going forward as so that we do not have this happening again. I will also have a word with the reception staff to ensure that we address this matter and do not have the first impression of our property be that our guests are the enemy. I do hope that you will return to our establishment again in the future.
