This is a beautiful getaway, the owners are friendly and accommodating, the staff were very good. We had a lovely time and will definitely be coming back. Its nice to find a little gem close to home. I would recommend Tugela Rapids to anyone wanting to getaway from from it all.

This place is a real treasure, and we all absolutely love it. When they have sorted out the drainage of the road so that it is easier to drive on in the rain, I will gladly rate it excellent! Roz and Trevor are great - happily pulled us out of the mud with a tractor.

We really enjoyed our stay and plan to spend a longer period. If you are looking for peace and quiet, Tugela Rapids has it all.

Nature and environment very good. Some small maintenance could be done i.e. hot water in bathroom. Bedroom and kitchen - very good.
