We stayed here because they had a honeymoon suite special and were close to Hluhluwe-Umfolozi park. It is about 10-15 minutes out of Hluhluwe town (which is good to buy groceries at or get a quick doctor's appointment, but there's nothing to do in town) and about a 45 minute drive from an entrance to Hluhluwe park. It's about a 75 minute drive to St. Lucia. You can of course stay closer to either of those attractions, but as we wanted to visit both it was quite convenient.
The honeymoon suite room was very pleasant. Big bay windows look out onto bush and also an outdoor whirlpool tub, although you do need to watch the wildlife if you use it. There are a few bucks and zebras on the premises, and the zebras are pretty tame so you can get quite close to them. We both thought the food was quite good.
Every supper had a couple of cooked meats and vegetables, soup and dessert.
We stayed 7 nights. We struggled to find enough to do, visiting Hluhluwe Park and St. Lucia twice and going to a few marginal activities that we probably could have skipped (eg. Duma Zulu cultural village and snake park). The 5 night special is plenty. One thing I would recommend doing, though, is the canoe tour that they offer. A local guide takes you VERY close to a hippo colony.
