The route starts in King Williams Town where guests can visit the grave of Steve Biko, the leader of the Black Consciousness movement and moves through Bisho along the N2 to Umtata. The Nelson Mandela Museum was opened 10 years to the day after Madiba was released from prison.

For nature-lovers, the Dwesa and Cwebe Nature Reserves, Hluleka Nature Reserve and Luchaba Nature Reserve all offer a variety of bird and wildlife. For the golfers, the Wild Coast Golf Course offers 18 holes and is ranked as one of the top 10 golf courses in South Africa.

      Neatness,although we arrived late but the lady still helped us with such a warmth and hospitality. keep up the good standard. Put microwave in the rooms to make it more convenient for those that do not have enough money to make orders. I thank you.

      room was clean bed comfy but had sprayed 1/2 can of air freshener and it took over an hour with doors open and fan on before we could go inside. So had to sit outside on the pavement because there is no where to sit outside at all.  Was overpriced for what you got. Only stayed here because we had to break up the driving. There is not that many choices in this city.

      It was an enjoyable stay, once we found the place. The signage could have been better designed with a larger arrow directing you. The lack of electronic payment was a pain and should be standard for travellers to pay without carrying cash......

      Awesome establishment .Very friendly staff .I will however make mention that the hot/cold water issue for showering needs to be attended to urgently.
