Guest Comments

A strange experience - the B&B was scruffy and most of the birdcages were empty. There was no access to the Msundui River. My son took an immediate dislike to the B&B, which is unusual for him. The staff were friendly but their morale was low; the management left us in a dark room during a power failure after failing to repair the generator electricity access - I had to ask to be moved into a room with electricity. The food at the restaurant was of poor quality (frozen chips and vegetables, tough meat)- restaurants in St Lucia offered better value. The rooms were clean and comfortable.
