Excellent breakfast. Comfy rooms but be warned the single rooms ARE single - with a small single bed! The fridge is MINUTE!! I've never seen such a small fridge - but it did keep a couple of cans cold though. Not too much else would fit in! Secure parking and relatively good wi-fi - except when there is load shedding.

Rooms - clean, neat, practical, warm, comfortable and well equipped. The standby generator ensured that we had electricity supply when loadshedding kicked in. The staff were excellent, and the management were very accommodating and extremely good to our team. definitely the place to stay at when in Pongola to enjoy a safe, comfortable stay.

The breakfast was very complete. The facilities are ok and everything is very new. When we arrived at the hotel they could not find our reservation, even having proof of payment. Even that, the lady who attended us gave us a room. There is almost nothing around the hotel.

Stayed overnight, staff were really friendly, breakfast was absolutely fantastic. The entire guesthouse is immaculate. Highly Recommended. If I travel to this area again, I would not bother looking at another guesthouse. 5 Stars for me.
