Good place to come as a 1 night stop on way to wild coast. Nice views, good food, good common room. Wifi has down while we were there. Staff and owner are good and helpful. Rooms a bit old and smelly, and bed a bit small. perhaps because we had the cheap one.

Stayed one night in Ku-Boboyi last month and had a very nice time! Eric is a very good cook and having dinner at the lodge is highly recommended. View from the terrace is great, which makes it a good place for sundowners, or just to hang out! Also, I happened to have forgotten my jacket, which Eric express mailed to...

The dinner was good but Eric's place needs some TLC. They make a good curry chicken and there is a beautiful view from the pool. The premises are conveniently located close to the N2 and not far from Port Alfred. If you are on budget this is a good option.

We came by this place by accident after moving on from another backpackers early and stayed in double unsuited rooms which were lovely and clean. It's tucked away in beautiful gardens with a brilliant view of the bay, pool and outdoor seating area. Really comfortable lounge and friendly staff. Small kitchen and free tea and coffee. Very relaxing place to...

My husband and I dropped in to this gorgeous place with its pool overlooking the ocean and were sorry that we didn't book a room there. We did, however, decide to have a meal which was lovingly prepared by Eric the owner and professional chef. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The service was impeccable. I only wanted one glass of wine, however, we had...

We were only there for one night. We went there because of their advertised R300 for two people in a double room, but when we arrived we were told they had some kind of plumbing problem and those rooms weren't available. We were offered a room with an ensuite tub and toilet for R450 and we took it. The first...
