Had a great stay. However, I had booked for 1 adult and 2 children aged 14 and there was only cutlery / crockery / towels supplied for 2. The electrical supply for the kettle didn't work and I had to plug it in next to the bed. Although reported, it wasn't seen to.

We have been 4 times to this hotel and we will definitely be coming back. The management and staff go out of their way to make the guests feel comfortable. The Estuary is the best kept secret on the KZN coast! Well done and keep it up.

Potential, potential,potential. You have the location, environment(beauty) and infrastructure. Now just sort out the babysitting services and bit of housekeeping and we'll definitely be back!

The location is amazing, the staff were excellent (especially Nombuso at reception), and breakfast was excellent. Even though everything was excellent but overall impression remain just "good" because of the noisy wedding guests. There was a wedding reception on Friday night and the wedding guests made lots of noise in the passage from about 11pm to 2am. As an insomniac that caused me a lot of problems as this is the exact period where i fall asleep. Basically spent the whole night awake. Felt really cheated. We were attending a church camp meeting in the area with my family. They had to leave me on Saturday morning as I couldn't drag myself out of bed to attend morning programmes. Its really sad since the location is supposed to be relaxing and thats why I chose the hotel. I know the hotel needs revenue from the weddings but at some point they will need to make a choice whether they want to be top hotel or a wedding venue.
