“Ideal stop off to durban”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2009

We were looking for a stopover on the way from pretoria to Durban. Great lcation directly off the N3 (this may prove noisy if you stay for a period of time however). we stayed in the Jambulani suite consisting of lounge, bedroom, enormous en suite with spa bath and a separate toilet. Beautiful room. Dinner was sunning and they were very accommodating with breakfast as we needed to leave early. Will stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2009

Clean and nice place with good food and good service. Only complaint is some noise as the place is located right on the highway between Jo'burg and Durban. From the pictures online we had got the impression it was somewhat more in the countryside but I guess that was lack of research on our end. It's location makes it a great place for an overnight stay when you are on the road though.

From its pictures, we expected La La Nathi to cost twice what it did!

The property sits amid fields with vistas looking away toward the distant hills. There is a main building, but we had the good fortune to get one of the cottages, with a living room, bedroom and kitchen.

Not only are the grounds nicely gardened with beautiful summer flowers, but they have zebras grazing in the fields!

I can't believe that all this cost us under US$55!!

  • Liked — It has zebras!
  • Disliked — Cottage not air conditioned
