What a FABULOUS property, rooms, amenities, food, tours and staff! We were very warmly welcomed by Jean and Shaun and were taken to our beautiful, spacious and comfortable room. The large grounds are spectacular with very well maintained gorgeous gardens, water features and smaller interior gardens along walkways. We enjoyed friendly service (especially from the always smiling server, Mathabi) in... More

Most pleasant stay with comfortable rooms, fine cuisine, and ultra-helpful staff. Jean's official title is 'Safari Manager' but she really is a p.r.o. par excellence for the Inn, doubling up in all sorts of capacities. We found it the ideal base to visit Mkhuze Game Reserve and would definitely love to come back! The grounds are beautiful, and very romantically... More

From the moment we arrived and met Sean and Jean we knew this would be a wonderful visit. They were fun, gracious and accommodating. The Ghost Mountain Inn is a wonderful inn with fantastic rooms, restaurant and grounds. Everything was well laid out and spotless. We loved walking down to the water to view incredible sunrises. We did not encounter... More

When you live in the sticks there aren't many places that can host a major celebration. Fortunately Ghost Mountain Inn offers the perfect spot, at the southern tip of Swaziland. The scenery is breathtaking, with Gaza and Ghost Mountain looming over the Inn. A dinner under the stars is not deterred by the fact that it's winter - as the... More

I led a group of 8 staying here while doing daily photography game drives at nearby Zimanga. The location made the trip to our safari very short each day. The rooms were clean and the food was very good. A highlight was a braai (cookout) on one evening.

The Ghost Mountain Inn is one of the strangest places on the planet but must be visited before you die. The food is good the staff are friendly and the place is clean, however the insects are all over the outside at night and the locals can be seen enjoying the restaurant

Dear DavidG Thank you for your review. I'm sure any accolade is good and 'one of the strangest places on the planet' is quite a statement. If you stay with us I'm sure you'll find that we aren't so strange and the name of the hotel is derived from the prominent peak in the Lebombo mountain range which rises in... More

great place to stay for a warm welcome, great restaurant, large clean rooms and fabulous pool. Would recommend as good value for money for standard of hotel. Food was excellent and all staff made a real effort to ensure the stay was as good as possible. Visited mkuze game reserve in our own vehicle from this hotel, easy to do.

Couldn't have been happier here. Great location for what you come here to do - relax, game reserves and bird watching. Wonderful, peaceful area of the world. Staff were beyond brilliant - such casual conversation and eager to pass on their knowledge. Room service was great, rooms were fantastic. Nice walks and hikes you can go on through the sugar...

This is a beautiful hotel, a real oasis. We visited it in the winter, so didn't take advantage of the pool. But really, I can't remember anything except our dinner! The restaurant is outside, with candlelight, so it's beautiful and romantic. I ordered a chicken dish, I think it was piri piri chicken. My husband ordered fish. Initially they served... More

Dear AndHomeAgain, Thank you for your review of the Ghost Mountain Inn. Good to hear that you appreciated our little Oasis in the middle of Zululand. We are terribly sorry to hear about your chicken dish and trust that our staff were able to rectify the error. I'm not sure when you stayed with us this winter but in the... More
