La Rochelle Inn

La Rochelle is a little Paradise which lays nestled close to the main blue flag status swimming beach in Meerensee, the beach and lake suburb of Richards Bay. It is a 3-star accredited facility which is run by the most warm and welcoming staff. Our units are extremely clean, warm and tidy. Nothing is compromised.

Your stay will feel like home away from home! This makes our guests return time and time again to enjoy a leisurely holiday or to enjoy the comfort and convenience of being close to Richards Bay’s business centre should their travels be of a corporate nature. We even cater for the fisherman who wants to bring his own ski-boat and we have created special parking bays behind secure electric fencing.

We serve a full South African breakfast supplemented by fruits and juices to ensure that you can go out and enjoy the many activities that are available.

The Inn was so lovely, the water feature there was so peaceful and calming, the rooms were lovely and clean. Overall stay was really great, will definitely stay there again given the option. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Self service bar prices are excellent and the staff members were helpful and friendly. Our children enjoyed the stay at La Rouchell Inn much more than the following 3 Star Protea Hotel stay we had after departure.

I stayed at La Rochelle Inn as I was in Richards Bay for a meeting. It was very nice, clean, well equipped and conveniently located. Breakfast was good and the service very friendly. Definitely would stay here again.
