                          Amazing view, but not good value for money :No shower curtain, hair in sink , limited hot water, restaurant not actually open

                          We stayed at Umzimvubu for two nights. The self catering unit we stayed in was spacious with three bedrooms and large living areas. But not well maintained and not properly cleaned before we entered. Fridge nor pedestal fan in kitchen was not working. The fan was not replaced and being February is was hot and humid. Fridge was sorted out after second request. No water for one day, which was turned off for no apparent reason. Ceiling fan in one bedroom gave shock when switched on.Umzimvubu has stunning views of the river mouth and is situated in a beautiful part of the country. The place has...

                          We only spent one night, but our room was very spacious and comfortable and overlooked the ocean and river mouth. We had driven a long way and so decided to eat at the restaurant. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious, and our hosts very accommodating. A lovely place to stay.
