Wendy's is a lovely place to stay. We spent two nights there and we loved it. The room is neat and tidy overlooking a beautiful garden. The eating area is very welcoming and the dinner was yummy, especially the cheese cake at the end. Wendy's is well located between Imfolozi park and St Lucia. We also took the game drive...

We were a family of 4 looking for a comfortable base to explore the local game parks and coast; the cottage at Wendy's provided just that. Having completed the usual long South African road trip where we arrived yeti hours later than expected, Jenny's warm welcome was a tonic. The cottage was built by Gavin as their home before they...

I visited Wendy's about 5 years ago with my then girlfriend who is now my wife and we had the most amazing time then. We returned this June with our little one and both sets of parents, which in itself could have been interesting. Wendy's has not lost any of its charm and was just how we remembered. We all...

Excellent clean and nice rooms. Because there isn't a nice restaurant in the neighbourhood, they decided to offer a in house restaurant, which is absolutely excellent! Rooms are clean. Staf is great. Wifi works fine! Only we had a room next to the bar, and that one can be a bit noisy, although we didn't hear a thing in the...

We had a fantastic weekend being hosted by Gavin and Jenny Udal. This B&B is a little gem hidden away in the Village of Riverview in Mtubatuba. The hospitality was superb as was the food, the accommodation and the 'friendly' barman/maid. This is true value for money. Don't hesitate to go on a game drive with Gavin. His knowledge of...
