Spotless and comfortable room with lovely en suite. Beautiful garden & pool. Quiet and secure. 20 minutes from King Shaka airport and 2 minutes from
restaurants in Umhalanga so ideal before an early flight.
Jill provided us with a packed breakfast as we had an early start.

It was an unplanned stay however it was very comfortable and friendly people made it a welcomed stay over. Great area, would definitely bring my wife with and stay again if we come out that way for holiday.

It is the ideal venue to get to following a day's work. Quiet and excellent service.
My experience is that it feels as if you are returning home after a long day at the office.
The Breakfast caters for everyone's needs.

Very beautiful venue with comfortable rooms and very friendly and accommodating staff. Even thou there was a breaking in some of the rooms the one night, they reacted swiftly by posting security guards on the premises and we didn't feel unsafe at any moment. We will use this venue again in the future.
