Firstly, I booked a semi-catering room on 5th Feb 2020 and when I arrived there given a very small non-catering room without privacy when using toilet facility (no toilet door at all). When complained to receptionist was informed that all roomed are fully booked and the travel agent could have told me that the room is not available. And further told me there is nothing he can do about that. Secondly, a semi catering room has a fridge, this one has no fridge, no aircon. the available aircon faulty and not working at all. Tried to report at reception following day and receptionist came and informed us that it will work later on I must wait. It never worked and we could see he was just fooling us. Another receptionist came and told me that aircon is faulty and he will try to transfer us to another room and that never happened until we left. You can imagine then the temperatures were around 34 degrees. Thirdly, just on arrived there at about 10pm on Friday there was too much noise coming from the room next to reception office, people drinking and smoking and talking loudly. Because we were accommodated upstairs I thought the noise would stop instead people moved to a small portion of balcony next to our room 25. The noise was worse until 4am the following morning. Smoking, drinking, shouting and all that noise just next to our room. I did not sleep at all on Friday. Fourthly, the bed is old and not comfortable at all especially the mattress. Worse part is that there is a land-line telephone there but useless because it is faulty you cannot even phone reception office if you have a query. I only booked that place in order for me and husband to be close to the starting line-up for Capital City Marathon that was on Sunday and also to find enough rest. I will never, ever in my life book in that Ilawu Inn and would also advise other fellow runners and others that I know not to ever book there. I normally go to Maritzburg 4 times a year for running. I am used to booking at Ilawu Lodge at Scottsville. The reception at Scottsville is very good. Everyone is helpful and caring. Ilawu Inn is a no, no, no, place for me. Thanks Thandi

Reception staff-spectacularly clueless. At check in, they told me I had not paid in full and I had to spend 20 minutes searching for an email on my phone to prove I had. A man with a confirmed booking was turned away; it was the night before the Comrades marathon and he was participating and had to try and find alternate accommodation at 18:00 in the evening. Another couple complained of unacceptable mold in their room. The key snapped in the door lock as I was entering my room. The shower drain was blocked, resulting in water sloshing onto the floor. The only reason we stayed at Ilawu was the proximity to PMB city hall, as my brother was running in the marathon. I wouldn’t recommend it to anybody. Noisy location, as it’s on a main road.
