We came to this hotel after having stayed two nights prior at a hotel with no heat and the outside temperature at or below freezing so the first things we looked for in the room was a heater and were relieved to find it. Things kept getting better from there. The room was clean and comfortable, pleasant although not luxurious.... More

Dear BeenTo7Continents, Thank you for your review. Mkuze is usually very warm but can get chilly in winter. We're happy that you found the heaters! Also that you had a good stay with us with spa treatments, boat trips and game drives. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back on your next trip to South Africa. Craig More

We stayed at Ghost Mountain for two nights, en route from Johannesburg to the coast. It's an easy 5.5 hours drive, since all the construction on the N2 has now been finalized.The hotel is very relaxed, with comfortable rooms (although the standard rooms need a refurb, especially the bathrooms) and a beautiful garden. The Garden Rooms look very good and... More

This place really has everything, the accommodation was fab, but must say the first night we had no A/C in our room so the very next day we were moved to the most amazing suite didn't want to leave. The surroundings were lovely the dining room, bar and restaurant were clean and comfortable, as were the rooms. A good sized... More

We stayed 2 nights in a garden room and enjoyed our time immensely. The grounds are lush, quiet and well kept. They are in the process of renovating some of the rooms and cautioned that we might hear some noise after breakfast but all was quiet and serene. The staff is outstanding and very accommodating. Jean arranged for us to... More

In my opinion a hotel can be judged by the quality and friendliness of the staff. This is a feeling that permeates through the whole establishment and is the highlight of a visit to Ghost Mtn. I visit regularly as part of my work but this visit was pure holiday with some friends from the USA. They were totally overwhelmed... More
