    Location

    Service at reception could be improved, they did not know that we were coming and forgot to give us the access card for the beach.

    Being refused breakfast, after it was clearly stated that it was included in the rate.

    Lodges well equipped and comfortable. Privacy of each lodge good, use of wifi when asked. Loved crocodiles in lake! Food in restaurant very good.

    Only customers in sundowner bar staff showed no interest ordered 2 cocktails and must have taken over 10 minutes to make and then were left on bar for us to collect. Television with xfactor was on very loudly ruined nice atmosphere. When we paid by card staff member realised no till roll in card machine so didn't know if transaction had gone through or not. We asked what he wanted to do and he said it would take him ages to go to reception to get new roll to see if it had worked. He suggested we went on Internet on our phone and checked our bank account. When we said didnt have Internet access he said that if transaction hadn't gone through he would have to pay for it. We weren't sure what he wanted us to do about it, in end on my suggestion we gave him room number and said if problem let know. Didn't hear anymore just all a bit unprofessional.

    Good day Our booking was for Deluxe 2 bedroom but were given a Superior 1 bedroom... Clean but not what we expected. Tanx Aslam

    It was very well appointed and our cabin was very private which we enjoy. Will definitely go back

    Peacefull and quiet. Staff very friendly. Area feels safe and is tidy. Realy enjoyed our stay and would recommend to friends and family. Will come and stay again.

    Breakfast price a bit on the high side but was enjoyable. Access gate coming from sea back onto property, I cut my arm on the notice plate in order to place access card on inside of gate to open gate. The plate is bent, and the space is tiny. Access point could be installed at a better point on outside for safe access. Could recommend a designated area for carwash facility.

    The privacy of having your own chalet, friendly staff, grounds well maintained, good restaurant, easy access to excursions into nature (Umfulozi game reserve where we saw white rhinos, airial boardwalk in Dlinza forrest, Raphia palm forrest, etc)

    Protea Hotel Imvubu Lodge has the friendliest and caring staff. The atmosphere there is so much different from all other lodges. The rooms were clean and up to standard. Meals provided were very compensating. Protea keep up your standard. Thank you for a great weekend.

  • Family with children

    the rooms were reasonably priced especially when you book them online. the beds are soo comfy and the tranquility and quite nature of the place is a great thing

    nothing at the moment

  • Older travelers

    homely/ bar over looking the sea/ room very comfortable

    service in the restorant and food not very good

  • Single
    5.4

    The accomodation options in Richards Bay are few and far between. I do not think it prudent not to spend huge amounts on accommodation for business travel. The Protea Hotel Imvubu fit the bill on this count.

    It's not super central, does not boast distinguishing features (e.g. view/scenery), and is not super comfortable for business travelers.

  • Couple
    3.8

    The staff were not trained well, and did not understand English always. The staff were not friendly and offered no customer service. The bathroom was old and mouldy. The room smelt mouldy. The fooo was very poor standard with tinned fruit at breakfast and stale rolls which were way overpriced. The overall quality and service was very poor. The receptionists were not welcoming or helpful in any way at all. They gave one word answers and were not helpful when I called to request Internet. I had to call 3 times only to then be told I had to go and see them In person. Bad service overall.

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    Individual separate rooms give you sense of privacy, yet all facilities are at hand.

    Hotel is run down, neglected, rooms are old.

  • Couple
    8.0

    I loved the rustic yet upmarket feel of the lodge. Restaurant staff were friendly. Loved the sunset bar (friendly barman) Delicious breakfast

    Check in/Reception not friendly and welcoming. Had a discrepancy over the breakfast which is advertised as included. Stunning property which should be open to the locals to generate more income especially in quiet periods. (though drinks and food not reasonally priced for the sa market)
