We had a 2 night stay while visiting family in Howick. Rooms were well equipped and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The property is described as a offering corporate accommodation. When we stayed the accommodation was full and many of the guests were up at 5am and were very noisy which did not result in a good nights sleep. Maybe were we just unlucky.

Do not be fooled by the Website. Although everyone was very friendly the place was horrible ! The room was dark and the kitchenette was rusting and the whole place could have done with a good scrub. Felt very uncomfortable.

We stayed over for the Midmar event. Fantastic location and friendly staff, the bistro on site is great. The unit was clean and neat and we had everything that was needed. The personal note and chocolate on the beds was a very nice touch! would definitely recommend Biggy Best Cottages

Service excellent. The staff was wonderful and very friendly. Rooms average - no aircon and no provision made when the power failed. Only a candle in the rooms, this is very unsafe. Would expect at least a torch or LED Lights.

Spent the night with family. Great surprise to get this quality stay at such an affordable price. Really clean. And the staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. The only criticism I have, is that the corridor connecting all the rooms allows for sound to travel quite far. Had some noisy neighbours.

Place is good. However the mattresses needs to be changed. We booked into a "Honey moon style cottage" and was very disappointed with the beds. Pillows and linen needs upgrading. The food was really good and the staff is very friendly.

The food was amazing, and great value for money. The rooms need some TLC (new towels, broken paintings should be removed, damp issues, mattresses replaced). The staff were friendly and accommodating. They clearly out effort in (matches by the fire for us, chocolates on the pillow, refreshments restocked). The room itself needs proper upgrading however.

This was an amazing experience had by my friend her daughter and my daughter and myself. The hospitality was amazing and we felt so at home. Food was good and the atmosphere so tranquil. Was even more important we were allowed to take our puppy with. my only suggestion would be to maybe do a heated pool one day and more activities for the kiddies.
