Booked three rooms at this B&B this weekend. We were warmly welcomed by Marie. Thoroughly enjoyed this place. Very clean, neat and tidy. We were very impressed with the Covid 19 measures taken. Our host went out of her way to prepare vegetarian breakfast for us. She also makes very tasty cakes, breads and biscuits. We sampled them all and really loved them. Highly recommended. We will definitely stay at the same place if we go back to St Lucia.

We stayed with our family of 4 kids (with our youngest of 1 year old) in the Family Room and enjoyed enough space: also in the bathroom with bath. People were very friendly in providing anything we needed and even took our baby boy on the arm so 'mom and dad can have breakfast'. With a great pool!

This is a very nice B&B. The rooms are nice, there is also a little pool. The breakfast is very good but the best plus of the guesthouse is the location and staff. Very helpful with all kinds of tips. The wifi is a bit slow.

We loved staying at Whalesong guesthouse! The room was beautiful and very clean. The host was lovely and served us a delicious breakfast every single morning! She also helped us out by booking activities like whalespotting and a hippo&croc boat tour!

We stayed 3 nights at the Whalesong and enjoyed it very much. The rooms are spacious and spotless clean. Mary was a great host, providing us with everything we needed for a day out at the Isimangaliso national park and the coast, binoculars, swimming goggles, extra towels and a delicious picknick.
