Review by Mpumi (Johannesburg)

A home away from home, Carol is absolutley fantastic and the same can be said about her staff. We had an excellent stay, I was a bit sick though but Carol called a doctor and booked an appointment for me and took me to the doctor personally, now that is what I call service! The breakfast was awesome and the rooms too very quiet and tranquil. We'll definitley go back there :)

Dear Carol,

Just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you for making our December holiday so special. We were spoilt rotten by your staff and yourself and were able to relax completely. It was a true pleaseure staying at your guest house and you catered for everything making us feel so papmpered. I will definately be passing on your details to all who will be holidaying in Umhlanga/La Lucia. Like I said to you while we were there by you "I think the rest of Umhlanga needs to come for Services lessons at Carters Lodge cause you guys out shone eveyone!" Thanks again for making our stay so special. Kind Regards

Always a pleasure for us coming here. This is what we call "Home away from Home". Keep it up and you'll see us always.

Carol, Thank you so much for you hospitality. My wife and I needed a break and this was exactly what we were looking for. The accommodation was great, staff friendly and the breakfast splendid. We will be back shortly, hopefully this time with the rest of our extended family.

I always feel at home at Carter's Lodge, away from home. It's my other home in Durban. There is no better place and your staff are outstanding and go all out to make us feel at home. Keep up this nice home. Lovely.

I have been staying here for 2yrs now for business but today is my last visit as I have resigned and relocating overseas, but want to say that Carter's will always be HIGHLY recommended to friends and colleagues - your place is Classy & Stylish and your staff warm and friendly. Keep up the good work!!!.... and hopefully I can return for pleasure not business.

Review by Pranitha (Johannesburg)

Dear Carol

Thanks to you and your staff for your hospitality, my stay was very short, I only wish I could have stayed longer and spent more time at Carters lodge instead of running off in the morning and returning late at night.You have a beautiful place there, you and your staff are very friendly and pleasant, I will definitely return for a holiday.

Many Thanks
