  Top notch- Wow!
(South Africa)   Mr Gallinetti 24 July 2012
I had the pleasure in staying in the Crooked Tree Cottage B&B.
The hands on hospitality by the owners is not seen very often in these days. Always helpful and accommodating in everything I required.
The rooms have top finishes it would be fitting to call this a luxury establishment. At the rates charged I did not expect such upmarket accommodation.
I have stayed there twice now and will most certainly return there when next required.

  very friendly host
(Switzerland)   Mr Ernst 30 April 2012
We stayed for six days in crooked tree cottage. Everything was nice and clean, Umhlanga seemed to be quite safe and we had a pleasant stay. But most of all, our host, Helen Oehler, was outstanding friendly and provided us with maps and helped us with repairing the car etc. We definitely recommend this place.
