Made to feel very welcome. Nice friendly staff. Beautiful gardens and great room with small kitchen area. Conveniently situated between Wetlands St Lucia and Imfolozi Reserve. We felt it was a very safe area in a gated complex. Would use this guest house again.

Wendy's Country House is much more than just great accommodation in Mtubatuba it is like becoming part of the family. Gavin and Jenny Udal have made it something very special. We spent our 15th anniversary and Valentines Day there. From the moment you arrive at this destination you are welcomed by Jenny as though she has known you for years....

Gavin and Wendy are just the host and hostess with the mostest. We were treated like royalty. The lodge is run to a very high standard. We arrived as friends and left feeling like family. Gavin escorted us on a game drive which we will never forget.

We were staying in Wendy's Country Lodge for three nights and took the three course dinner every evening. We've liked the food very much! We've done both trips, the hosts offered, one hippo tour to St. Lucia and a game drive. All the recommendations about activities were perfect. The hosts, Jenny and Gavin, are indescribable familiar and ran the bar...

We stayed at Wendys for 10 days, partly connected with my wife's work and partly on holiday. The accommodation was very comfortable and the amenities very good; all the meals were very nice and the service excellent. We did two safari drives led by Lourwina which were quite excellent - she knew what to look for and pointed out all...

As the first place we stayed in south africa, this was a wonderful introduction to the country, we were greeted with wide smiles and the offer of drinks as we filled out a few details. The rooms (we stayed in two of them) were very comfortable, clean and well stocked with everything you would expect from a hotel. The owners...

What a quaint, lovely place! Thank you for the warm welcome we received at Wendy's! Nothing is too much trouble for Louwrina and she went out of her way to make sure we were informed of what there was to do in the area and made sure we were comfortable and had everything that we needed.

We experienced the very best of South African hospitality staying at Wendy's Country Lodge. Makes you realise what is important in life and it's definitely not material things. Didn't feel the need to watch TV. WiFi signal was great. Loved the socialising with other guests at the bar and hearing about their experiences on their day trips. One group were...
