Lovely and quiet and rooms were really nice and clean. We loved the home cooked meals☺ Would really recommend a stay here. Enjoyed the walks by the river but would recommend a longer set hiking trail across the river

The place was nice, the breakfast was very good, i would prefer if you have a menu for supper in advance so we know what we going to eat. The place was nice and quet just ther way we wanted it. The road though was very challenging - we need a bakkie next time.....

A comfortable and attractive resort in beautiful, tranquil surroundings. We had booked for self-catering but decided to have dinner and breakfast in the restaurant instead and enjoyed delicious home cooking. The accommodation units are very comfortable. The road to the resort is a bit of a challenge, but the remoteness just adds to the charm. I wish we could have... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights because we wanted some quiet time away from the city. Wow! We found exactly that. Peace of mind, along the Mvoti river and the Nsikeni Mountain. We will definately visit this place again.

They really made us feel at home. we would definitely want to go there again, Beautiful setting in the KZN area, the 20min Gravel road travel is worth the drive all the way. An Relaxing break away of the Busy City life! Relax next to a boma Fire before or after dinner!

Being out in the middle of now where in the farm lands, I was surprized when I saw the rooms and of course the friendliness of the owners, I find that the rooms are better than the big corporate hotels, and I liked the shower, the out doors, very nice.

Hidden at the bottom of the valley, at the end of a lonely road lies a gem all should behold but one wants to keep for themselves. Wellvale Resort is a heavenly piece of paradise, The care of the hosts is much like that of family. Its a place that seems hard to get to but difficult to leave once... More
