Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates775 contributions400 helpful votes
We visited this place in 2010 on a previous visit to the area and held positive memories. The place has a new owner, but the same excellent level of service. Since the manager was on holiday, we were welcomed by Craig and three friendly dogs. The cottage was in a good state and clean. An breakfast menu that varied every day and gave us a good start for the day. A small swimming pool and honesty bar. Very friendly and helpful staff. They also book excursion for guests and Craig told me he is a licensed guide himself. Because of load shedding (power cuts) some of the nights were not so comfortable in the hot and humid climate without power to keep on the air conditioning, but power cuts happen everywhere in Kwazulu Natal and there is nothing our hosts could do about them. Overall we had a very relaxing stay.

Dear Will, Thank you so much for your lovely review of our guesthouse, I am pleased that you enjoyed your time in St Lucia again. Hope you are enjoying the rest of your travels. At least loadshedding has been put on hold for a while. :-) We hope to see you again in the future. Best wishes, Bonita, Craig & the friendly dogs.

We enjoyed our stay. Bonita was a helpful,friendly host. Room was clean and pleasant with clean towels daily. We were able to swim and braai. We experienced extremely hot weather during our visit to St Lucia. Fortunately the rooms have air conditioning. Just the breakfast area has no air conditioning which made it a bit uncomfortable.

Dear Martin And Marleen, Thank you for the lovely review, I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay and St Lucia. The dining room area does have aircon, I just couldn't turn it on during loadshedding which was from 08h00-10h00. :-(. My apologies. I hope to welcome you back in the future. Best Wishes, Bonita

Nice place, perfect location, very friendly and family caring staff/owner. Would certainly like to come back for another holiday at the KwaZulu - Natal north coast. Ideal for visiting the wetlands around St. Lucia.

Not only St.Lucia is a pleasant location, but within St.Lucia, Parkers Cottage is a very good B&B to stay! Nice and generous rooms with good beds and big bathrooms. Very good breakfast and coffee. And Bonita was very helpful in arranging some excursions in the area! Very much recommended!

Parker’s cottages staff was incredibly nice and helpful when I made a lot of mistakes that caused them extra work. A hotel that goes a long way in taking care of their guests and who made my day several times by their kindness and humor. Recommended!

A beautiful, clean, spacious and comfortable cottage. We had everything we needed and even more than was expected. Bonita was a lovely, friendly hostess - she gave us lots of tips of where to go and what to see, which was most helpful. The Sunset Cruise she booked for us was super, with very well spoken knowledgeable guides. We would love to visit again with more family members.

Unfortunately we had bad weather while in Santa Lucia, so we haven't been able to enjoy the swimming pool. But our cottage was good, big, and clean. The kids room was smelling "humidity", but it didn't bother us too much. The lady in charge of the hotel is very nice and very helpfull, and the breafast was perfect !.

Dear Delphine, Thank you for the lovely review. Unfortunately we do sometimes have a problem with dampness due to the tropical climate we live in. I do air the rooms frequently to combat this problem. Your feedback is appreciated. You did experience some bad weather whilst you visited us, this is a good reason for a return visit. :-) We hope to welcome you back in the future. Regards, Bonita & Shaggy Dog.
