    Ocean view restaurant, where you can eat, is within a walking distance of the hotel. Perfect for city break. Free Wi-Fi was provided and was essential. Decent place for your vacations in Richards Bay.

    Perfect

    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.

    Great

    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.

    Guest rating

    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.
