Welcomed with a smile. Staff assisted with my extra heavy back and the check in process was super quick. shown to my room and advised on what is available. The room is fit for purpose and comes with fresh bedding everyday. Situated behind a shopping centre with other amenities close by. I walked to the shopping centre whenever I wanted... More

I have always travelled to Pongola for business and always stayed at the Pongola Country Lodge, as I thought it was the best place by far. I am always sceptical of places that I find on the internet because sometimes the pictures can be misleading, but I have to say after staying at KWALALA, I am not disappointed. They have... More

We booked 2 inter leading rooms which was great. Rooms are clean and can not fault them with anything. My only complaint is the staff. There was obviously no management available during our stay. Staff seemed unsure and not well trained. The were very friendly but lacking in giving us direction. For dinner no suggestions where to go - eventually... More

We decided to stay here overnight rather than drive to Ponta d'Ouro in one go. The rooms and their surrounds are first class and very well kept. Next time we plan to arrive in the afternoon so that we can make use of the swimming pool. I would have given Kwa Lala 5 stars but didn't because I felt that... More

The rooms are beautiful and big and the overall decor of the place was very welcoming and gave a feeling of north Africa / France. Nice big rooms, clean and comfortable bed and pillows and a well stocked mini bar. Service was excellent and both dinner and breakfast was a treat!

Kwa Lala BnB was a bit more difficult to find than expected as the side road one has to turn down, after turning off the highway through Pongola, had lost its name board and it looked like an alleyway leading to the back of shops. In the event, one has to simply go along the road and Kwa Lala is... More
