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. The rooms are spotlessly...

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...

Enjoyable stay in friendly lodge. Staff was friendly though a bit to guiding and, only the first night, pushing contacts between the guests. Television didn't work and we were not supposed to,leave our rooms after 23:15 (7:15 Pm). The lodge organiseert a very good game drive with an excellent guide.

The room is very comfortable, the shared area is nicely decorated and pleasant, the hosts are nice and breakfast satisfying. No complaints. Cape Vidal beach is about 30 minutes drive away, and St. Lucia is 10 minutes away.

This quaint home away from home has served me so very well for business related accommodation for almost a year now, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. The staff's hospitality and friendliness, the wonderfully appointed and comfortable rooms (The Cottage is my favorite) continue to exceed all of my requirements. There's something to be said for consistency...

We spent 3 nights at Wendy's Country Lodge and were blown away by the lovely personal touches at this wonderful guest house.
