I like staying here. It feels like you are stepping back into history with wide stairs winding up, lots of space and only a double story victorian feel. Things to point out: - Wifi should be organised additionally. There was a price tag to it, but they never charged me for it - ask at reception. - Rooms are small,...

I had occasion to stay here for business. Newly refurbished room is great but tiny. Towels are OK. But the hand towels are frayed. They did not have breakfast but provided money for a meal. The neighbours' extractor fan kept waking me. And some young guys were fooling around in the passage but I did go to bed early. Couldn't...

I had an unexpected overnight work trip in Howick. I was glad to find a decent hotel close by at the last minute. I was working very late and was mainly concerned about finding a clean, comfortable and safe place to sleep that night. Someone is stationed at reception throughout the night, I didn't like that I had to stop...

After a disastrous experience at another establishment in the area; we arrived, checked in and booked in to this hotel at 8pm on a quiet Sunday night. Our room and bathroom were extremely new, sparkling clean and the linen and towels could not be cleaner. The receptionist on duty could not do enough for us even helping us warm up...

Apologies that you did not have a comfortable sleep. Unfortunately with the hotel being in the CBD the noise levels can at times be a bit noisy. We are in the process of renovating and replacing all our linen. Once a guest checks out the rooms are cleaned and aired.The musty smell could have been from the very humid weather...

What a pleasant experience we have had! We booked at a resort in Drakensburg but on arrival decided the resort was totally not up to standard so we decided to push on to the next town where we found Howick Hotel. They were R600 less expensive and 100 times better than where we have booked. I will highly recommend them...

Very clean and neat. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not worth the money.money . Could have had better value for money at a Wimpy. This was not a real continental and English breakfast combination. Expect more. HHotel was fine. Maybe add on a mini bar or at least a vending machine to purchase cold drinks and water

We stayed at the Howick Falls Hotel for a wedding in the area. Great service and the rooms were in great condition! We were for one night only but would have stayed longer if i could! Many things to do in the area. Breakfast at the hotel was also great.

“The rooms facing Morling Street overlook a grand historical building (now a popular curios shop) and garden with big trees.”

“Apparently there are various room configurations, either overlooking the street or the courtyard. We chose the courtyard as we wanted a good nights sleep and didn't need to see a view while our eyes were shut!”
