We stayed a couple of nights here and found the staff and facilities to be excellent. The food in the restaurant was very good and well presented. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful with nothing being too much trouble for them.

The positive thing about this hotel is its situation and surroundings. Just beautiful. There is a wonderful garden terrace, where you can have breakfast and lunch. The not so positive experience was our room; too small with hardly any space to put our luggage. The airco was terribly noisy and the bed much too small. Needless to say that we... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in Ghost Mountain Inn as our basis for a photosafari at Zimanga Private Game Reserve nearby. It is a spacious inn with a nice lobby and bar area. Plus a beautiful garden. The rooms/cottages are OK, clean and we slept well. On the other hand: nothing is special. And the dinners could... More

Room was connected with next room by à door Thatcher was not isolated and even nog could be closer. So we heared everything of the neighbours. Poor help at reception. Shower not good and dangourous wet floor.

Is a long way to go to get to Ghost Mountain but worth every cent. Free Wi-Fi in rooms as well as in the area around reception is really useful, plus the comfy couches where you can sit, see some views and catch up with social media. The rooms are recently upgraded and are spotless- flat screen tv, bar fridge,... More

Ghost Mountain Inn is a wonderful hotel in the sleepy town of Mkuze. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. They all have in room wifi which is great. A superior room is a good option. The grounds are a wonder and many birds can be viewed by sitting in the lush gardens. The food was very good, although the... More

Suppers, although limited choice, were excellent, and breakfasts too. Great free Wi-Fi all over, good DSTV and flat-screen TVs in rooms. Gardens and pool area amazing. Staff fantastic, Jean and Megan were very good guides. Relaxed "African" feel. Well-priced for a long weekend - seemed the best in the area and central to explore Mkuze Game reserve, Jozini Dam and... More

Room was nice (I'd say go for the superior room rather than the standard room - totally worth it). Good breakfast, average dinner and excellent wine selection. Very friendly and helpful staff. The place truly came into its own during an afternoon on which I had no activities planned: the grounds are perfect for chilling with a drink/book or just... More

For a small town, Mkuze and Ghost Mountain Inn, sure went big and gave it their all. Last weekend Ghost Mountain hosted the most incredible wedding and did it with style! Over 200 guests celebrated with the most handsome couple in Zululand. The food was amazing, the service spot on and the setting absolutely perfect for the romance it deserved.... More

The best of three hotels where we stayed on a week Historical and Cultural tour of Mozambique, Swaziland and Kwa Zulu Natal. Exceptionally clean, very comfortable rooms. Lovely breakfasts outside when weather permitted. Fabulous grounds in a relaxed and peaceful setting. Limited menu in the evening but good food. Would certainly recommend this hotel.
