Ascot Inn - Pietermaritzburg - Bedroom
1
8.2 Excellent (456 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Ascot Inn in Pietermaritzburg, you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Comrades Marathon House and Scottsville Racecourse. Free self parking is available onsite.
7.0 Good
Pros: The Aircon and Wifi is brilliant.
Cons: They could have a small selection for dinner instead of only one choice which is a bit pricey.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The general facilities were good as was the breakfast
Cons: Despite booking a non-smoking room the first room allocated did bear a no smoking sign but the room was permeated with the smell of tobacco smoke which necessitated a second room being allocated. The prescripts of the Tobacco Control Act are not adhered to as the undercover walkways are set up to facilitate smoking (e.g. ashtrays are provided) as opposed to bearing prescribed signage to prohibit smoking in enclosed or partially enclosed public places. Non smoking guests are consequently forced to run the gauntlet of persons smoking in these areas. It should be mentioned that these failures to comply with the legislation render the person in control of the premises liable to a carry a potential fine of R 50 000.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: the room number 26 was fantastic

5.8 Okay
Pros: Central, in a nice area of Pietermaritzburg and safe. Convenient if you don’t want to book into a B&B
Cons: When we arrived there was no one at reception, I eventually called someone from the back office who told me the front desk manager would be through in 5mins. Was not a great check-in experience. Similar experience on check-out. Got into our room and found ants all over the window sill, but the worst was a used glass lying in the sink which looked like someone had spat in it. On our way out a cockroach scurried along the floor in the hallway. The hotel is dated and in need of a refurb. I would recommend booking into a charming B&B rather than using this hotel.

5.0 Okay
Pros: Upon arrival my room my changed to a smaller one without my concern plus I got served stale bread for breakfast. The drainage system of the shower was very poor which made it unpleasant to shower
Cons: Being served fresh bread and not so burnt beacon.
6.0 Good
Pros: It was a pleasant home stay, but expensive for what was on offer. The location was perfect for us as we were staying close to friends. There was nothing wrong with it per se, but nothing to particularly rave about either. We did go back for a second night at the end of our trip to KZN as it was convenient to our friends and price aside, there was nothing particularly wrong.
Cons: Pricing was high for the facilities. There was no water or milk in the fridge. The bathroom was minimalist. The property is in need of some TLC, but nothing terrible. Just very ordinary and the website made it appear that it was going to be quite an upmarket place. We did go back for a second night, but although we paid for breakfast, we were told we had to eat before 7am because the relief manager was going to work. We had no desire to get up to eat at that time as we were on holiday and there was no offer of a refund for the breakfast. Neither were we told when we booked in again that there would be a time limit like that.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The place was clean and cozy
Cons: I like everything about that place very clean and quiet. The host is very friendly.

4.0 Okay
Pros: Nice interior.
Cons: Unreliable staff. We asked a guy from the staff to help us taking delivery of our luggage which was lost by our airline and was supposed to be delivered to this hostel within the day. He assured to be in the hostel all the day and would take delivery of it instead of us in case we weren´t there and give us he chance to wait inside. After coming back from a short drive to the shops the hostel was deserted with no staff in it. No response to ringing the bell, no chance to get and wait inside though he promised us. We had to wait in front of the closed gate for several hours and finally had to leave as night fell without our luggage having been delivered.
