      This hotel is ok for the price. No frills. Location is perfect for exploring Richards Bay. It’s just next to the mall and minutes’ drive to the beach. Bathroom cleanliness could be improved. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is poor and could do with lots of improvement. We stayed here on 2 occasions one night each time. We didn’t bother with breakfast on the second occasion as there are plenty of options at the mall. Breakfast consisted of pale looking sausages, lukewarm scrambled eggs, overly processed cheese (those individually wrapped cheese slices), toast, some muffins. We arrived 40 min before end of breakfast but most food had already run out. Had to request coffee mugs, cutlery and glasses. There seemed to be one person cooking and looking after guests. The lady was polite but she seemed overwhelmed, which was not obviously her fault. Overall, you get what you pay for. Basic hotel at reasonable price. It met our needs as a base. Another plus is the free WiFi.
