We were pleasantly surprised, a peaceful oasis in the middle of rough terrain! The site is peaceful and quiet. We stayed over for one night only due to the constraints of getting back to Durban, in preparation for the looming lockdown. But we plan to visit for a longer period as soon as everything is back to normal.

Spotted Grunter had a beautiful Veranda where I could work for a bit whilst enjoying the view of the cliffs and of the mighty umzimvubu River.

Lovely Resort after a long road and time on-site.

Great value for money. Will be back

Will be back

good location. tiny living area. beds are literally in the kitchen. hot water in the shower seldom works. i expected much more from the pictures online. i would have expected the 4 sleeper to be a 2 bedroom, instead theres one tiny room and the 2 single beds are part of the kitchen. theres barely place to walk around once your baggage is in.

A great spot to chill out, good location, receptionists very pleasant. Nice restaurant area, good food. Bathroom area a bit confined,toilet seat requires attention reported to reception. Rates a bit steep for this area.
