Stayed over for 1 night during our holiday at the Kwa La La B&B. We had a very nice and warm welcome and the rooms were beautiful and clean. Susan and Leo are good hosts and organized a very good meal with delicious wines during the evening. We definitely recommend this place if you would like to stop over night... More

Service is consistently excellent, meals are 5 star (my company books me for B&B, this is the only place I'm happy to pay for their dinner rather than bring my own to eat!) Rooms always clean and beautifully done. Thanks!

This is really the best service I've come across in a long time - absolutely dedicated to make you feel at home. Beautiful place, beautiful people, great wine and the biggest breakfast ever! Try it, you won't be sorry :)

I stay here twice a month for business & have done so for years. the best place to stay in Pongola. Amazing food, excellent hospitality and very comfortable rooms, I'd definitely recommend it. 10 out of 10 from me !!!! Susan & her staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable!

The rooms at Kwa Lala are very basic, we expected something special but a 2** Road Lodge would have been better. The dinner is fine, if somewhat old-fashioned/pretentious, silver domes over the plates, etc. No Rosé wine by the glass. Red wine in a locked (!) wine cellar/cupboard, which has to be unlocked for one to choose your red wine.... More

Excellent place. Clean. Well appointed. Great breakfast especially the fruit salad. And coffee. Loved the extra touch of Easter eggs. Thank you so much for the well found oasis. As usual the trip advisor posts are right on the mark. Just struggled to find a decent place to have dinner on Easter Sunday.

It was the most amazing stay. The room was very well appointed, neat and cozy. The breakfast and dinner was unbelievable. Thank you Susan and Leon. It was memorable as always. Just have really created a jewel in Pongola.

I have stayed at Kwalala numerous times and have never found it to be less than excellent. The rooms and bathrooms are great and the food is fantastic. The staff are efficient, honest and friendly. I love my visits to Pongola because it is such a pleasure to stay at Kwalala!!!

I regret the day I went to stay at Kwa Lala due to bad attitude from staff and the manager. I book to sleep only one night from what it seems to a food experience turned to be a bad one. When I woke the following day without realising it's that time of the month. It happened that I messed... More
