The venue was very conveniently situated, being accessible to all amenities. The accommodation was of a very high standard, lovely room, good quality food and service, and the hosts were very gracious and helpful in all aspects. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone looking for an enjoyable stay.

Travelling up from the South Coast to a Game Farm in Norhern Kwazulu Natal we needed a one night stopover in St Lucia so we could visit the wetlands. The St Lucia Wetlands Guest House proved to be an excellent choice and we wished we could have stayed longer. Hettie and Derick were very welcoming and made us feel very... More

The charming welcome by Hettie and Derick in their beautiful (garden, woodwork) made is hope for the best and the hope was fulfilled. Good help (providing towels, cool box and snorkeling equipment), correct information and an excellent breakfast made our stay in the beautiful St.Lucia and the wetlands unforgettable. Recommended!

Very comfortable guesthouse, big rooms, good breakfast, private parking and most importantly incredibly welcoming hosts who will tell you everything you need to know about St Lucia and its surroundings. Don't miss out. Your car is even washed every morning!

Friendly staff, rooms are nice and clean, great location at walking distance of restaurants and bars yet very quiet, good breakfast, great service (they even wash the car). The owners are very good at helping you out with your itinerary.

Very helpfull and kind owners. Beach towels, snorkel gear and coolbox provided free of charge. Great breakfast, great location. Clean rooms. Only downside was the relatively small bathroom and the many windows in the room that were difficult to close. Overall, highly recommended.

Visited St Lucia on a business trip with the accommodation booked by the office so I had no idea what to expect. I can only say that I was very pleasantly surprised. Owner and his son (I think) were very helpful and friendly and suggested what to see if we had time and also suggested options for dinner which turned... More

A joy to stay at this guesthouse. Comfortable, clean room, great outdoor space, lovely pool with sun loungers, spacious well furnished guest lounge, good breakfast and hippos in the street! Ideally located to visit both Isimangaliso Wetland Park and Imfolozi only a short drive away. The host, Colin, is extremely helpful and accommodating. I don't think you could go wrong... More

Given the superlative reviews by many others, we expected the St Lucia Wetlands Guesthouse to be quite outstanding but, whilst it is perectly reasonable, in our opinion, it does not quite match up to its 5 star rating or compare favourably to the quality provided by many of other similar establishments that we have experienced in South Africa. The hosts... More
