    Located next to the beach.

    The hotel is rated 4 star and you would expect at least 4 star treatment, instead way below was experienced. We were allocated standard rooms instead of what we booked for and we had to explain our booking and demanded that we are granted what we booked for. It took a long time before we could get correct rooms. Service levels are very low. The confirmation received was that the buffet costs R135 per person but when we got there we were charged R165 per person. The staff at the dinning hall were not friendly at all probably because we arrived an hour before closure. The guy who just looked at us, I assume he was the manager on duty didnt even greet us or check if we are ok, he just didn't notice us inspite of the fact that we were the only ones there. Protea Richards Bay must seriously looked into its staff competences.

    I have visited Richards Bay several times since 1998 and always stayed at the Protea Hotel The Richards. Friendly and comfortable hotel. Good location. Very good restaurant and nice sport bar. Friendly staff and excellent service!

    Just the general environment and the quiteness>

    The rooms are all tiled and somehow its uncomfortable in a cold weather> alternatively they can have half of the rooms with carpet. The beds if they can improve them from double beds to at least queen size> or have two double beds within rooms>single beds are out of fashion in hotels.

    The location

    Staff at the front desk were horrible with service deliveries. Front desk has only one person running the show, and sometimes doesn't know how to serve the client/s needs.

    Layout of hotel was appealing.

    The service was terrible. The front desk clerk attempted to double charge me for my room, even though I had prepaid. Her explanation was uncipherable, and she did not make the slightest attempt to apologize. The breakfast buffet was mediocre at best, and extremely overpriced.

    Nothing

    Price is way out to expensive. R1300+r300 = r1600.00 For an below average small room. Never paid more than r695.00 Per room including breakfast, at kruger park Protea . Best Location

    The outside setting. Cleaniss

    The Hotel is advertised as a 4* but unfortunately this is definetly not the case. The rooms are definetly sub standard and in no way can this hotel qualify as a four star. I have stayed in better 2 and 3 star hotels.
