Tranquil place that could be so much more (once the ongoing renovations are complete). Good breakfast and dinner on the premises. Kiddies play area needs some improvement. Otherwise good value for money.

We stayed at Biggy Best Cottages over Easter Weekend, whilst attending a wedding in Howick. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast included was pleasant, rooms cleaned and towels replaced daily. However, their WIFI signal was weak. Overall, a good value for money option when in the area.

Staff are friendly and welcoming. Wi-Fi available on premise. No telephones/communication link in cottage. Plenty of outdoor parking. SUPERVISION & CONTROL by Management is poor. Upon arrival our...

Biggie best is very conveniently located in a good part of Howich near all amenities. Rooms are comfortable. There are minor maintenance issues that require attention. The restaurant served well priced good food for dinner. Breakfast is a bit underwhelming. Internet signal is weak

Breakfast was flexible, bed was comfortable, staff was effective and friendly. The only issue was that they gave me a room with 2 single beds, even though I had explained my 2m height wouldn't fit. They fixed the problem immediately though

Was over charged on arrival have been promised for at least a week that I will get a refund, but I am still waiting. Over wise it was good and we enjoyed our stay. not sure we will stay again as there was no air condition and we had to beg for a fan.

The rooms can REALLY do with a ceiling fan: There is not much ventilation in the room, therefore it was hot in the room during the night! The breakfast that was included in the room price, was to our opinion, not of a very high standard. There are no designated parking, so guests park in front of your window and...

We only stayed the night and left the following morning after breakfast. On my way down to Durban I was contacted by a non tactful person saying that I had left without paying my full bill. I said I had in fact paid it and would obviously not leave without doing so. To which the lady just put the phone...

Personally I don't often stay in B&B's. We had a wedding this weekend in the midlands and could have stayed with my parents as they live nearby, but instead decided as a treat to ourselves we would book a room here. We have a toddler so sleep in's do not exist for us .. so we were quite looking forward...
