The rooms have rusty carpets but have acceptable size and in quiet environment. Close to PMB city centre but you have to drive to any restaurant/shop as nothing is walking distance. Staff helpful but we did not try the breakfast.

Fantastic stay! Brenda and her crew were always there to make our stay a pleasurable one. We had dinner at the hotel and it was really good. Kids enjoyed it and have suggested we stay there again if the opportunity arises.

Have been to Redlands hotel a few times as I travel to Pietermaritzburg a lot. Generally eat there even if I am not staying there. I have been there recently and the one night the food was good as always (had the curry) but the second night the food was not up to standard. Had a rump and asked for...

Accessibility, reception, ambience, service, choice of public yet private lounges, all tastefully decorated. Ability to relax in quiet surroundings. Attention to individual guest needs was a bonus for me. Housekeeping: Sadly need to mention daily shower floor/drain scrubbing and handbasin plug/drain clearing of previous guests residues, should be prioritized for detailed attention please. So, all in all...thank you so much...

We have stayed at the Redlands Hotel on numerous occasions when travelling to PMB on business. We have always had excellent service and meals. We also use the Redlands Hotel for meeting clients when we are just visiting for the day and the staff always ensure we are well looked after.

Dear Nick. Thanks for taking the time to review Redlands Hotel. We are very fortunate in that the tap water in South Africa in general and Pietermaritzburg in particular, is of excellent quality and so we do not need to supply bottled water. These are however available on request. Similarly we do not have mini bars in most of our...
