Wow what a stunning B&B. Rich is beautiful historical photos and true memories of KZN. The facilities is very modern and well kept after. They truly offer a Covid free environment and offers enough outdoor facilities with tons of social distancing kept in mind. Love the two head chefs and everything they rock up in a kitchen. Well done Don and Barbara Can't wait for my next trip up to you guys See you soon 😊
