Ilawu Boutique Hotel
Reviewed 22 January 2014

my husband and sisters stayed here for 4days, it was unfortunate that we had already booked and paid our accomodation here. I must say the rooms were neat and the food "okay", however, there are number of things that were not working. the first night the shower was blogged, the next morning there was no hot/warm water in the showers, this was for the entire time we were there. Lastly, we missed our favourite shows on TV as the DSTV was not working and we were told the technician will be coming in the following week :0( as i feel we should have been told about this before we even booked.

This place could really be nice, if it was well maintained, ie. paint/wipe clean your walls, remove dirty linen in your bedroom-cupboards, organise stands in your bathroom it's such an inconvinience to use your bathrooms, check your aircons in the bathroooms & bedrooms regularly as Pietermaritzburg is such a humid place to have a non-working aircon.

The little hotel exceeds ones expectations on several levels. 1) Very well appointed entrance and rooms. 2) Breakfast and dinner included in the room rate. 3) Friendly helpful staff.

I stayed for two evenings and found the hotel a fresh breeze of air.

Room Tip: Book well in advance and save on your next vacation.

Firstly we booked for New England Road, but make sure this is where you going as there is another branch in Morcom Road Prestbury. The opposite side of town. Which is where we had to stay. Secondly we were on the ground floor & people entering the establishment were very noisy together with the reception staff. The person on duty starts to set breakfast tables at about 2am, loud enough to wake all of the ground floor guests. The gate was broken so cars leaving the premises had to hoot, just to add to the noise. It was clean & staff were friendly, but I will not recommend.
