Always a treat to visit the GMI - a colonial oasis up the Kwa-Zulu Natal North coast, just a few hours from Durban. Visited with a bunch of mates and we were treated to cold beers and great service from arrival until the end of the weekend. The GMI is a great boutique hotel and is close to many of... More

as we drove into Mkuze the signs beckoned us to Ghost Mountain Inn for a R59 lunch special. The grounds of the hotel are lovely and well cared for, the rooms look comfortable and the hotel is tastefully decorated. We waited some time for the waiter to come back with the answer that in fact there was no R59 lunch,... More

The Ghost Mountain Inn knows how to celebrate a special occasion. This is not the first time we have been included in festivities at this wonderful Inn. And every time is equally as memorable as the last. The accommodation is so comfortable and we were lucky enough to score Room 41 - One of the few rooms with a massive... More

The hotel was lovely in general however the rooms were very disappointing. We had a look at the standard room and thank goodness we had booked a superior room. Even so the superior room was extremely basic for the normal rate. Towels were brown, bathroom not very clean. The pictures of the rooms on the website is VERY deceiving. Hotel... More

The Ghost Mountain Inn is my most favourite hotel ever. Now that's a statement that doesn't come lightly. From the minute we arrived to our departure I could not fault this hotel.
