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...

We stayed for 3 enjoyable, relaxing and rewarding nights. The food was excellent, the reception warm and the ambience inviting and friendly. The highlight was the game drive with Gavin.

We recently spent a five night stay at Wendy's in the middle of a three week visit to KZN. Everything about Wendy's, owned by superb hosts Gavin and Jenny was just perfect for us.

Pleasant stay, beautiful garden. We enjoyed breakfast and room was nice and clean. Could give help with luggage as rooms are far from parking. Uneven pathways and problem for elderly. Louwrina was very professional and staff friendly. No alcohol allowed in room, which was a pity as it was my husbands birthday.

We received a warm welcome and found the accommodation spotless. The cooking was first-rate. All the guests were drawn together by Jenny and Gavin's warmth and hospitality and it was clear to us that they get plenty of repeat business. We woud certainly stay there again.
