I always found it pleasant to stay in at Gecko Inn as the service, food and service are of great importance to guests visiting Gecko Inm. That's why we always try to get our booking done at Gecko Inn because of the great friendly services, food and relaxation at the bar after a days work, also cooling down at the swimming pool. Close to shopping centers as well to do your shopping or requirements even when away from home. Always feel at home while staying at Gecko Inn, thanks for great service.

I recommend Gecko Inn to be the place to stay while in NRB. I am always pleased with the service, the staff and cleanliness of the BnB. It is situated around shops, malls and everything that a person but need while in NRB.

The place was lovely and people are very friendly. The city and shops are not very far apart, so it was easy to get around and find exactly what you need. There were many accomodation and bed and Breakfast accomodation everywhere, so staying in Richards Bay would not be a problem if you arrive without booking. Its a very neat and relaxing place to spend time away from home.

Okay. 3 out of 5
