This rustic riverside setting is idyllic for a romantic getaway. And its proximity to the Natal south coast attractions and the Wild Coast Sun across the river makes it a great base.
The breakfasts are also generous and delicious with a nice variety.
Yet we were disappointed with the customer service - there was no dedicated staff member on the premises after 5pm (rather a live-in caretaker who was more busy running after her children than being available for guests). We were also asked to move to another room for our last night because there was a wedding party coming to stay and their needs seemed to take preference over ours. In fact, we got the general feeling that this is a wedding venue first and an accommodation establishment second - which is not the way you want to feel when you spend more than R1000 a night.
The last insult was when our account was incorrectly deducted an additional time a month later for another 50% of the cost!
Lovely spot but they need to work on their professionalism, especially for accommodation guests
