From the time that we were met by the wonderful Lowrena in reception, we were simply cared for as only Wendy's can. As always , Gav and Jen were impeccable hosts and I think the thing that we enjoy the most is the non-ending laughter that you get at Wendy's. It is without a doubt the best Guest House in...

The property stands within the equivalent of a gated community outside the town.It is reasonably near St Lucia ( which is much more buzzy and crowded than is to our taste, OK to visit but not to stay). Wendy's is very well run,the rooms are comfortable and the ambiance is good.The food on the set menu is good and the...

Made to feel very welcome. Nice friendly staff. Beautiful gardens and great room with small kitchen area. Conveniently situated between Wetlands St Lucia and Imfolozi Reserve. We felt it was a very safe area in a gated complex. Would use this guest house again.

Wendy's Country House is much more than just great accommodation in Mtubatuba it is like becoming part of the family. Gavin and Jenny Udal have made it something very special. We spent our 15th anniversary and Valentines Day there. From the moment you arrive at this destination you are welcomed by Jenny as though she has known you for years....

Gavin and Wendy are just the host and hostess with the mostest. We were treated like royalty. The lodge is run to a very high standard. We arrived as friends and left feeling like family. Gavin escorted us on a game drive which we will never forget.

We were staying in Wendy's Country Lodge for three nights and took the three course dinner every evening. We've liked the food very much! We've done both trips, the hosts offered, one hippo tour to St. Lucia and a game drive. All the recommendations about activities were perfect. The hosts, Jenny and Gavin, are indescribable familiar and ran the bar...

We stayed at Wendys for 10 days, partly connected with my wife's work and partly on holiday. The accommodation was very comfortable and the amenities very good; all the meals were very nice and the service excellent. We did two safari drives led by Lourwina which were quite excellent - she knew what to look for and pointed out all...

As the first place we stayed in south africa, this was a wonderful introduction to the country, we were greeted with wide smiles and the offer of drinks as we filled out a few details. The rooms (we stayed in two of them) were very comfortable, clean and well stocked with everything you would expect from a hotel. The owners...
