Lovely hotel with spacious and cosy rooms. WiFi din't reach to every room, but overall the hotel was more than OK. The St Lucia Estuary is very nearby, so there are many different ways to spot croccodiles and hippos ranging from a boat trip to horse riding on the beach and through the bush. 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.

Good place to stay just outside the Hluhluwe imofolozi National Park. Nicely decorated rooms and patio/garden with bbq. Rooms were very clean, and had good beds. Good shower. We defintely recommend this place.

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.

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.
