Our stay at Crooked Tree Cottage was easily one of the most pleasant stays: the room was fantastic, the view was incredible, and the service is unquestionably outstanding. There is nothing that we could say to criticise Crooked Tree Cottage and would encourage anyone and everyone looking for accommodation in Umhlanga to stay here.

A very nice house in a quiet residential location but within 10 mins safe walk of the town centre shops and restaurants and within 10 mins drive of the "largest shopping mall in the Southern Hemisphere". A very warm reception from Helen and her husband who could not have been more helpful. Lovely breakfast and free wifi. Highly recommended.

I've stayed here twice now and have never been disappointed. The rooms are spotlessly clean and well furnished, the beds are extremely comfortable and the establishment is well situated with lovely sea views. The portions of the mouth-watering breakfasts are far from shy and there is a large selection compared to most other B&Bs. The owners are very helpful and... More

Nice quiet location set on the side of a hill overlooking the sea. Good for one night stay, whilst in transit. Close to all amenities. On down side. Price a bit steep. Awkward parking in driveway on downhill which required reversing back out onto the street. Breakfast omelette, very heavy. All in all a good stopover.

I took a group of five to The Crooked Tree for a one day stay last month. Three from the UK and two from Russia. Being unfamiliar with South Africa and this being our first night in our country I was keen that the accommodation would be safe and comfortable. This place really hit the mark - well located, comfortable... More

Everything inside the room is nice and cozy, it has all the stuff you need if you want to cook yourself, and the view from the room is breathtaking. even though the location is not perfect enough, the price is reasonable.
