“Brilliant accommodation for the money.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

Stayed only one night to break the journey from Kruger Park to St. Lucia. (You wouldn't really want more than one night in Pongola). We arrived on a Sunday and there is absolutely nowhere to go for dinner or a beer.
That aside, the Dive Inn was fantastic, the air-conditioned ensuite room we had was great. Fridge in room for our own beer made a pleasant evening with a take away pizza from the petrol station. Breakfast was good, would definitely stay again if passing through. Steve & Lyn Rood, Kent, England.

Stayed February 2014

We stayed one night before heading across the border into Swaziland.

Excellent for the price. Good clean rooms (recently renovated) with TV, Aircon, fridge and microwave. We asked for a recommendation for a restaurant and had an excellent meal at the Pongola Lodge in town. Breakfast was well done but we did use our own filter coffee instead of the instant on offer.

We would stay again.

Room Tip: Ensure you get a renovated room as they are in the middle of completing this task.

We stayed at Dive Inn with our motorbikes. It was unforgettable. Nice rooms and garden. Very friendly staff and owner.
I recommend Dive Inn to anybody anytime. Will book again for next year's Cane rally

We only spent one night there but I can say it's a great place to be. We were greeted by a parrot! And the bird says "Hello!" Seriously! :) I loved it!!! The room was very nice. It felt comfortable and cozy.

Clean rooms, beautiful garden, excellent breakfast and wonderful service, Manager went out of his way to accommodate us with braai facilities and utencils. (Hope the neighbours didn't mind our noise) The perfect stopover from Gauteng to Mozambique. I recomend this place to all. Will definately stay there again. Well done to new owners!

Room Tip: Front rooms are more spacious

Clean, comfortable, affordable & Joyfull. Also a great location to stay overnight before or after Swaziland. Rooms are luxurous. The B&B is also wheel chair friendly. I look forward to re-visit this B&B location in the near future! Well done Naas!!
