It looks nice on the internet, and the view at and from the hotel, towards the river, is nice. We didn't like the stuff attitude, that both at reception and at breakfast, was MUCH BELOW our expectations. The rooms (on the ground level) are filled with moisture odor (we asked and eventually moved to the upper level floor). The stuff...

Just had a weeks stay at N'Taba. First the good... the property is gorgeous, well maintained and tranquil. It's exactly the sort of place you can see yourself doing yoga by the pool or tai chi on the lawn. But since I do neither of those things, I'll just say it's picturesque. There are two pools by the spa (*)...

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at N'taba River Lodge. The location was beautiful, the room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The hosts Bugs and Ivan were very hospitable as were all the staff. The 3 course dinner was delicious. I would highly recommend this lodge and wish I could have stayed longer; one night was...

We were extremely fortunate to have booked the Madiba suite which has a wonderful deck overlooking the river. Although the room is a little dark and the shower didn't work, we spent most of our time outside and the bath was big enough for two. The breakfast was great and the pool area quite lovely. We enjoyed a SPA bath...

The accommodation was lovely and the location on the river is beautiful. The grounds are...

I stayed here for one night and I was pleasantly surprised. i did not have very high expectations since the place is in a rural town. Well I can say my expectations were exceeded. The rooms are spacious, clean and actually quite lovey. There is a nice, comfortable bed, TV, airconditioner and a fan. There is spacious wardrobe, with an...

A superb lodge with great attention to detail from owners. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. Friendly and warm staff. The owners took a personal interest in my vegetarian meals. Will definately be back.

Together with some colleagues, I recently did some work in Umthatha. We decided to stay in the picturesque village of Port St Johns. We selected to stay at N'taba River Lodge for the week and I couldn't have been happier with our choice. After each day's work, and the rather perilous trip from Umthatha, it was a joy to enter...

Well appointed rooms, spacious and views of the river banks are breathtaking, the addition of the Spa facility is going to be an added advantage. Good service from the staff. The garden is designed to be a relaxing spot after a long drive!

Stunning lodge, from the decor - all of which is the most amazing teak furniture, to the copper bath, smiling staff including the incredible spa therapist who rivals top notch Jhb and international spa's, to the staff who smile and laugh all day as they tend to you every need! If it shows up as fully booked call Bugs anyway...
