Convenient location for overnight travelling. Check in and out (person not always available). Problem with payment as I had paid many months earlier due to budget but Tamboti only took money off credit card much later (I had since changed cards so payment declined and they did not notify me until I came to check out - very poor administration...

Old rooms, no wifi, and far from everything. Just a good stop if you are crossing to Swaziland the next morning. The breakfast is good, but the whole stay is overly expensive for what you get. They have a strict curfew before 9pm.

This B&B is such a delight. Situated on a farm, it has magnificent views, peace and quiet, only broken by the calls and songs of the large numbers and varieties of birds in the gardens. The hosts are in the background, but ensure that one is made to feel welcome and one's needs are catered for. The rooms are spacious,...

When traveling from Kruger Park south via Swaziland towards the east coast of South Africa, we stayed one night in this very nice and peaceful B&B right after the border between Swaziland and South Africa. The rooms are spacy, cosy and nicely decorated with all comfort. Host is very friendly and breakfast is excellent.

My stay was extremely relaxing for a business stay over. The hosts were very friendly! Wifi assisted me get some work done. And having dinner at Shayamoya was awesome! There was only one issue, and that was the water was cold (geyser must have been off). Cold shower was helpful however. Thank you for the stay Denise.

On the internet it looks way different than the actual place. old and out dated, insects, dirt roads,needs urgent upgrade. we thought it was located in the town of Pongola and not in a cane field. only one good thing I can state about this place, the shower in my room was wonderful, enough pressure compared to my colleagues living...
