“Comfortable, great staff, good food”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I've been at this hotel twice now, just last week and for a week in 2013. It is very comfortable, the staff is terrific, and the food is good. It is within a gated business park, so very quiet after hours. It is more like a bed and breakfast than a commercial hotel, which was great. It is within walking distance to a convenience store and fast food, but only 1 or 2 other restaurants, but the food at the hotel was good and plenty of variety. There's tea and instant coffee in the room. The wifi was usually pretty good, couple of glitchy times, and there are living room like areas downstairs to hang out in.

I was there in september 2009. and loved this hotel. The rooms are big, confortable, clean,... The staff is very kind and the breakfast was delicious. The place is very silent and is perfect to relax.

upon my arrival on my room the bathroom was dirty. it was obvious that someone had used it a day before because the flow was dirty and there were hairs for that person floating all over. my recommendation is that prior a guest checks in, someone must check the rooms as to whether the they resemble your quality.

The reception was excellent. cleanliness in general, bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent. sense of humour of the staff mncwaa. the setting of the dining room, the meal was very good. If and when we visit P.M. Burg definitely we will recommend Redlands to our leadership. we can as well recommend it to other potential clients.

Great service, good value, very accomodating staff & management. Brenda on reception was very welcoming and informative. The outdoor pool helped to relax me post the Comrades Ultra marathon. The food quality & standard was
exceptional and great value. The grounds were immaculately maintained.

Aircon was not working, as button broken. One day no clean towels were left.
The fixtures in the bathroom should be tightened and there should be a key in the bedroom doors. The menu at the restaurant is limited when staying for ten days. At breakfast there was no butter for the last three days.
