The rooms are beautifully furnished and decorated, the staff very friendly and helpful and the location is ideal for Hluhluwe game reserve. The only setback is the low pressure making it difficult to have a proper shower.

The owners of this guesthouse are very friendly, hospitable and thoughtful. Trying to make you feel comfortable in everything. A nice place to stay; close to the Hluhluwe Gamereserve. Great facilities to arrange your own braai.

The village of St Lucia is... More

The owner was very polite and helpful. The room was well furnished and had most of the things we needed. The breakfast was fair. However, the location is not well sign-posted. Dining places can be a challenge

Excellent value for money. The accommodation is very comfortable, clean and spacious. The rooms and en-suite are very tastefully decorated and all the facilities are well maintained and in working order. Free Wi-Fi and selected satellite TV channels. The hosts and staff are friendly and helpful. Food, including dinner, was great. Will definitely stay again when in the area.

PLUS: We were lucky to get upgraded to the "Honeymoon suite". What a treat... with a great big bed, a huge soaking bath, rain shower, robes, coffee/tea facilities, hair dryer, sewing kit, dinning table, couch and huge tv. Everything very clean and the attention to details was unique. The common area was pleasant and well decorated but not very private.... More

Very nice house near national park. We stayed in Kudu Suite. Beautiful and clean room. Very nice to sit outside in the evening with the possibility to have a braai with other guests. Delicious breakfast.
