An excellent budget option within chirping distance of the Umgeni River Bird Park. It's set around a suburban garden and has a couple of free-standing (smallish) cabins, a large 12-bed dorm with attached kitchen, a smaller four-bed dorm inside the house and even a caravan for the ultra-budget conscious. The whole place has a great feel; the hosts couldn't be friendlier.
Next door is the sister property De Charmoy, an upmarket alternative with a similarly friendly demeanour.
Smiths Cottage is a tranquil, upmarket home-from-home, set in a beautiful sub-tropical garden, with affordable traveller's rates.
