                  Nice without being flash. Cheap bar, friendly staff & a decent breakfast can be expected. Once the owners cooked supper, it was the best meal I had in Richards Bay. Rooms are cleaned daily & washing is also catered for. Security guards make sure no one comes near the parking lot at night. Also, this was the only lodge I saw in Meerensee which did not seem a bit dingy.

                  Es war ein wunderbarer Aufenthalt in der Umhambi Lodge in Room 16. Leider hatten wir nur eine Nacht,da wir auf dem Weg nach Nelspruit waren. Wir haben es sehr bedauert, dass wir nicht länger bleiben konnten. Wenn wir wieder in Richards Bay sind, bleiben für unbedingt für eine Woche. It was a wonderful stay in the Lodge Room Umhambi 16th Unfortunately we had only one night as we were on our way to Nelspruit. We are very sorry that we could not stay longer. When we get back to Richards Bay, stay for a week for sure.

                  It was most definitely the best place I've ever stayed at. Everything is beautiful and clean. Very professional yet relaxed service. You will see us again.

                  This place was really 5 Star. The room was very nice and the breakfast was so nice we never had lunch. Thanks for everything.
