Lovely hotel but small and dark room. Convenient for visiting Hluhluwe park. Large supermarket nearby incase you will self cater. Breakfast was delicious. Not much choice of restaurants in the area but a fastfood takeaway did the job.

Perfect location. Nice room for the money you pay. The breakfast is to expensive. ZAR 150 is to much for just a normal continental breakfast. You pay ZAR 150 for having diner in a normal/good restaurant in Hluhluwe or else in ZAMore
