"We will come back!"

(Germany) Joyce Holler | 28 September 2014

"It is one of the most beautiful lodges I have visited.The lodge has an incredible garden - like a little paradise. Thanks to everybody for this great stay. We made only one mistake - we booked one night only. You have to stay longer!"


"Excellent lodge"

"Our second visit to Wendy's lodge was once again a perfect hit. This year, some renovation had also been made to the rooms (ceiling, light). A warm welcome by the hosts Jenny and Gavin in a very nice accomodation (beautiful rooms, living room, bar and garden). Great help by Lourina at the desk who also did a magnificent job as guide during the morning game drive at Umfolozi. Breakfast and dinner (supplementary) were excellent. All this at a reasonably price."


"Excellent"

(South Africa) Sasha Robertshaw | 13 April 2013

"Wonderful"

(South Africa) Peter Whittle-Long | 10 August 2011

What a treat! We would stay here again if we could."


"Lovely place to stay"

(South Africa) Barbara Gumede | 6 December 2010

"Very nice, clean and well decorated place. Definitely recommended. Nice restaurant as well. R135 for a meal is just ˆ bit too much in my opinion. Very good location between Hluhluwe, Sodwana and St Lucia which made us decide to stay here 3 nights. No turndown, however charging R35 for unlimited to the wifi network is a bit weird, when you spend around R750 a day eating and sleeping. "


"This was a delightful place to stay. "

(United Kingdom) Sean Marven | 9 January 2010

"We arrived late and Wendy had arranged dinner for us. She showed our children some lovely African instruments to make frog noises with! The gardens are fabulous and overall it has a lovely ambience. Wendy is a warm and welcoming woman and I wish we could have stayed longer."


"Very good"

(South Africa) Malcolm Glennie | 19 May 2008

"Very short to be honest - in late in the evening and then out early the following morning but very comfortable none-the-less!"


"Fantastic"

(Italy) giorgio venturini | 21 April 2008

"I spent 17 days in South Africa and I tried 10 different accommodations. Wendy is certainly the best: A wonderful room in a wonderful house in a fantastic garden! Perfect staff and very good eating, both for breakfast and or dinner.

Thank you Wendy"


"A Summer Retreat"

(United Kingdom) Jenny Baker | 17 February 2007

"I would recommend Wendy's Country Lodge as an excellent place to stay. Wendy and her husband are very friendly and can't do enough to make your visit comfortable.

The rooms are spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. This is like home from home."

We would certainly consider staying here again if we ever return to the area. It was well positioned for St Lucia and Umfolozi."


"Pleasant surprise"

(South Africa) Mr Alessandri | 13 December 2011

"After not being able to secure accommodation inside the Umfolozi Game Park, we decided to look for somewhere in Mtubatuba. We decided to try Wendy's Country Lodge. We had a great 3 nights stay.

"After not being able to secure accommodation inside the Umfolozi Game Park, we decided to look for somewhere in Mtubatuba. We decided to try Wendy's Country Lodge. We had a great 3 nights stay. The rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. The food is delicious and there is lots of it! We had a full English breakfast every day and supper on two of the evenings which was a four course offering. The hosts, Wendy & Tony are welcoming, friendly and helpful. Their gardens are magnificent and the staff are polite and cheerful. I would definitely recommend their B&B."


"Hospitality at Wendy's"

"Wendy and Tony are great hosts! I travel extensively through South Africa and always stay at guest houses. Travelling alone for business for 3 - 5 days at a time is very lonely, and this is the first time I have experienced the hosts having drinks and dinner with their guests and encouraging them to get to know one another through conversation. Their staff are equally friendly and helpful and the service is great - well done!"


"Excellent"

(Netherlands) Mr Schra | 2 December 2010

"We stayed one night at Wendy's Country Lodge, but we should stay for at least a week.
As we didn't know this was paradise, we planned our trip further on. And we regret.
Because staying at Wendy's is having it all.
No need to go further.
Excellent food and excellent hospitality."


"Looking back to Wendy's"

(Netherlands) Mr Erbe | 7 January 2009

"Wendy"s was great, good rooms, very good food, very nice people and staff who created an fantastic atmosphere. It was very nice to stay there for 3 nights and highly recommendable."

"We are thankful to our fate that we got bookings at Wendy's at such a small period of search before the holidays. However, our stay at Wendy's is what made our holidays memorable. Wendy has got a amazing country side ambience with a touch of classiques and antiques in all items in her lodge, starting from bedrooms to sitting room and bar room. Her hospitality is what made us felt "home away from home." She is meticulous in all aspects of providing comfort to patrons of all age, gender, race, nationality and taste. I will definitely suggest my friends to try Wendy's. Thank you"
