“A place to unwind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Had the chance to spend a week staying at the Duck Inn after a very hectic past few months at work. I was able to put my feet up and read a book or relax in the pool. Have all the amentities of home but with the added service Sue brings to her guests.close to the beach and was able to get up to Hluhluwe Game Park which is only an hour or so drive so had alot to do with my time off.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent but if you are looking to be able to unwindI would go with Room 3 as yu...

Well situated small and individual hotel. 5 minutes with the car to the beaches and the Waterfront. Near the main route to Empangeni. Safe parking. Nice breakfast.
Sue, the owner is very hospitable and helpful.

Spent 4 fantastic days on business there, such a calming tranquil place and a lovely lady, Sue running the place. Always clean and tidy and some wonderful bird life in the garden. Even her animals welcome you with open paws

We stayed here in December 2012. The service was excellent, we had a great time. Clean rooms and beautiful swimming pool. Perfect for a family who prefers self catering. The wireless internet was a great bonus,

What a pleasure it was staying at the Duck Inn - from the beautiful surroundings to Sue's warm hospitality and vast knowledge of SA. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the gardens are just so beautiful - like a little oasis. But I think my favorite thing about the Duck Inn is the "wildlife"! From hearing the little doxie's (Jake, Max and Mika) enthusiastically scampering up the sidewalk to wish us a good morning and Mr. Wiggles shy but sweet greeting, to watching to the hadidas building and rebuilding their nest with unwavering persistence and of course the monkeys!! Oh, and let's not forget the gecko named Amy who lives behind the dining room clock - a real beauty!! Although there are many places to go and see in South Africa, the Duck Inn is one place I would like to always return to. Thank you Sue for making our trip so enjoyable!!

This was a perfect place to stay on my first trip to South Africa. The lodging was lovely, like a home away from home. We were comfortable from morning when we went to the dining room until we went to bed in the super comfy beds. The gardens and pool area are a peaceful retreat, and it is designed to be a place to relax and enjoy, from the birds in the spectacular gardens in the am,,,the occasional monkeys,with the smell of the yesterday today and tomorrow bushes...to sitting my the tables by your room and the pool with a glass of wine or cup of tea in the evening. Sue is a wonderful hostess who shared information about the history of SA as well as the surrounding area when asked. I am happy to say she is an new friend to this Phelps new York USA resident. I would definitely return and recommend the Duck Inn to anyone!
