Was fantastic. In a short space of 3 hours we watched lion hunt an Njala and just miss, then stalk some warthog, walk into a herd of elephant on route to a water hole, rhino having an altercation and buffalo grazing and crossing the road around our vehicle. Definitely recommended for anyone wanting a game / safari experience.

We were very surprised with the hotel, the location might be a let down for some, but very closely situated to the Hluhluwe Game Reserve, which was a big bonus. The rooms were fine, food delicious and a lady called Star was wonderful with the kids.

A very pleasant hotel with nice rooms and facilities, although our room was a bit of a trek from the reception. The restaurant was reasonable although hectic due to the numbers trying to eat in it.

Lovely little hotel in Hluhluwe! Staff are warm and friendly, and go the extra mile to please you (hats off to the chef who prepared a special 'halaal-friendly' meal for us!). Nice little garden and pool area to relax in the evenings. Wonderful curio shop at the hotel at very reasonable prices indeed! otherwise, nothing too special about the hotel......
