Cute little hotel in a residential setting easy drive to airport, mall and the bay for a yummy meal at Portuguese on the bay we recommend. The front desk staff was very accommodating we came in early and put our bags in their storage and they had the maid service get to our room first to allow us early access to our room after a quick lunch. The meals were good, quick service and they even sent my laundry out for washing and had it back same day at a reasonable price. The room we booked was the honeymoon suite and it was very cute with jacuzzi tub, king bed, nice fridge and counter area and separate shower. If we travel to Richards Bay again in the future we would most definitely stay again!

There was construction work happening on the property. We did not mind however one would think that on a Sunday there would no construction work. Unfortunately Sunday morning the work and the noise continued. We are a family of 4 (2 adults + 2 children). We were allocated 2 rooms away from the pool and the restaurant. For families perhaps check-in staff should consider putting families closer to facilities. The staff were very accommodating, friendly and efficient. Overall our stay was very pleasant and we will definitely recommend it.
