Excellent country hotel with good service. You get the feel of being in a hotel 80 years ago. But of course the modern version of that type of establishment. Great basis to explore the Hluhluwe park.Also offer open vehicle safaris.

Well organised and friendly staff, though very professional. The ambiance of the hotel is welcoming. The rooms are neat and well maintained. Meals are delicious and their breakfast buffet a must. A variety that meet all standards. Prepared to the highest standards. Loved every moment of our stay.

There is wifi, but not in rooms - only in recpetion areas. The people are friendly though! Breakfast is nothing exceptional. The rooms and the beds are big enough. No complaints in that area. Just go!

Disappointing. Well priced but the service was very poor. Staff avoids interaction, unable to solve major problems. No feedback on reported problems. Staff prefer to continue private conversation before attending to guests.
