We had a 2 week holiday in Kwazulu Natal and out of all the places we stayed, Amazulu was the best by far. We received a warm welcome by the owner, the rooms are beautiful and had everything we needed and the breakfast was out of this world. I can highly highly recommend Amazulu. There is not a better place... More

We made the reservation based on the info available in internet. For our surprise the place was much more beautiful. We had our anniversary in the honeymoon suite and is better than a five stars hotel. Family hospitality, braii, pools, quiet spot in town near the Hluhluwe National Park.

We are two couples who stayed in Amazulu guest house for one night, while visiting the Hluhluwe game reserve. We had a very friendly welcome by the owner and were particularly impressed with the effort put into the outside areas. We had a lovely braai in the well equipped braai area and were impressed with the trouble the owners took... More

Enjoyable stay, very warm and welcoming owners. Fantastic decor, spacious and very clean. Close to most activities, owners kept us informed of things to do. The coffee could be better! Overall great place and excellent value for money, will definitely visit again!

Excellent stay. Beautiful beaches and game reserves, Great breakfast, great rooms, friendly host. Only negatives would be the amount of trucks on the road, which made driving around the area less pleasant and the coffee could be levelled up.

Friendly owner. Amazing stay. Very comfortable and would definitely stay there again. Made to feel very welcome and very accomodating to my family, especially travelling with an infant. Breakfast really delicious. The only downfall is that the air conditioning did not work properly as it only blew out hot air and would not go below 28 degrees. We were quite... More

we booked the honey moon suite since we wanted a room with a king size bed. We loved the size of the room, big and comfortable. The bathroom too was spacious and nice. It was very good value for money with a nice breakfast included. We had a nice dinner on our terrace cooked by the owner. It was very... More
