Your home away from home

When Linda and Richard Polayya, owners of Footprints Inn in Empangeni, were told their business had won the ‘Best Bed & Breakfast’ category, they were ‘totally bowled over’. ‘ ‘It was such a wonderful surprise, so unexpected,’ says Linda. ‘We really want to thank everyone, from the bottom of our hearts, who took the time to vote for our business in these awards. ‘It really means the world to us,’ she says. ‘When we opened Footprints lnn in 2003, we trusted the business to God and He has blessed us abundantly.’ Footprints Inn is nestled in a lush, green garden in Empangeni’s Panorama suburb. It boasts six bedrooms or suites that surround a pool and patio, and all are fitted with air conditioners, DStv and a coffee and tea station. The B & B is conveniently situated just 2km from the CBD and a variety of restaurants, with no fewer than three golf courses on its doorstep (Empangeni, Richards Bay and FeIixton Country Clubs). To add to their guests’ comfort and convenience, they can be shuttled to and from the Richards Bay Airport by arrangement, and children are most welcome. Linda and Richard are also able to arrange tours to the local game reserves and most popular tourist attractions in Zululand, on behalf of their guests. So, why not remove yourself from the hustle and bustle? Footprints Inn offers a place in which to rest and relax.
