“SUPERB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2013 via mobile

Our stay was fantastic, with friendly and helpful staff. We are from Australia and this was the pinnacle of our 'African' holiday. The rooms are very comfortable with all the necessities. This place should be rated 5 Star and is highly recommended.

Stayed December 2013

The decor in the rooms is a little over the top, however the rooms are all en suite and well equipped. Note no work desk which I like to have rather than working on my knee.
The rooms face on to a courtyard which is nice but can get a little crowded if all the guests are outside. There is a pool with deck chairs and a there are a couple of Brai areas
Breakfast is communal and has a good variety. This B&B has a high standard with good value.
I will stay again when in Hluhluwe for work,

This place is meant for the traveller. I would call it a boutique guest house. Based on a modern African style the rooms are stylish comfortable and clean. The friendly professional owners know what the traveller needs and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. We were given a huge carafe of wine to drink and our washing done for free. These small things just go towards making you feel a valued customer. The staff were also very obliging too. We booked an early morning game drive through Amazulu and were packed a picnic breakfast fit for a Zulu king.One small comment we found the wifi signal to be weak in the accomodation area maybe needs a repeater to be installed.

The owners are wonderful. Their sense of decorating and style are first class. The units are cozy, quiet, tasteful, functional, and comfortable. They offer WiFi, but you may not be able to access it from your room. But they have a beautiful sitting room where reception is 5-bars. Breakfast is great (but please offer flavored yogurt instead of plain). We will stay there again if we go back.

We stayed at Amazulu Guest House in Hluhluwe for 3 nights and were vey disappointed. The proprietor made no effort to introduce herself even though we caught glimpses of her around and about. Her husband was very nice and helpful even though he told us that he is not involved in the running of the guest house at all. The breakfasts were very unappetising. The room was very nice although we would have preferred a door to the bathroom for a little privacy. Also the pillows were so lumpy we couldn't sleep on them. We won't be returning in the future.
