          We really enjoyed our stay. This was the second time we visited Imvubu Lodge. Some small changes / upgrades will make a person's stay even nicer. In the suite that we stayed, the couches are a bit uncomfortable. It will be lovely if the furniture can be updated.

          Worst stay in South Africa”
          Friendy staff
          The resort is old, the lodges are not as comfortable as described on the homepage and the rates are absolutely too expensive! Very poor restaurant (meals were not well cooked - three out of eight dishes went back to kitchen). The only good thing (if there is one) was the staff - they all knew about the problems in the resort and tried to solve the problems with friendly faces... but that's unfortunately not enough. An alarm bell wrang the half night whithout any reason, hotel knew already about that problem but did not prevent it. No W-LAN despite included in hotel description!

          friendly staff and access to beach
          The room and bedding was stuffy. For a 3 star protea hotel lodge, it has very old fittings and tv was above the fridge, very old kitchen n cupboards smelt damp.. Telephone didn't work properly, so problems with getting through to reception. When we returned daily, we were sent back and forth from reception to housekeeping for the keys. The first night we ate at the restaurant, seemed like the steak was off. My partner vomitted because it made him sick. The pictures on the internet really give a very modern feel of the place, but its totally disappointing when u see the actual room.

          Not knowing what to expect, we choose Richards Bay because it cut off 2 hours of our journey north to our Safari. Travel books had discouraged stopping there as it is an industrial port. The Imvubu Lodge was a total surprise and we loved our time there. It was September and it was mating season for the Weaver Birds who build these intricate nests and you can watch them while you eat. And we would be remiss if we failed to mention "Frank" the crocodile. You can go into Richards Bay to a very large shopping center via taxi very easily. We loved our King Suite that came complete with kitchen and a decanter of sherry that was refilled each day. There was a great view of the Indian Ocean and you could see ships for miles. While much of Richards Bay is very developed the Lodge is in the jungle complete with monkey's, flowers and a variety of birds.

          Expectations were not met.”
          The desk clerk was kind. The ocean was accessible if you could make the long walk
          The promises that were made prior to arrival were not kept. Although I asked to be picked up at the airport, the hotel did not make the arrangements. I requested and paid for a lake view room, I did not get it. The toilet did not work and only one of the door keys worked and only from the outside so each time I left the room, I had to go around the outside to lock the door. Internet access was limited to a short period of time and then stopped completely and could not be accesses the rest of the stay.
