Such a wonderful place to visit over a period of time and to find that the quality is really unchanged. Staff very friendly as always, food great dinner and breakfast buffets as always, rooms (stayed in a Garden Suite) very comfortable with one of the best hotel sleep experiences. Buildings and surroundings are very colonial and comfortable with great bar... More

What a most wonderful place to get married, beautiful location, wonderful and accommodating staff, comfortable rooms with everything you need. From the moment we arrived, all friends and family were taken care of, GMI took all the stress out of wedding planning and we had the most special time. Recommend it to anyone.

We stayed 2 nights and had a great time. Would recommend the a la carte menu instead of the buffer though. A nice place to relax and unwind. We went for a walk up the Ghost Mountain and it was not strenuous at all. Will recommend because of the great views.

Welcoming by the friendly staff is always a highlight, our rooms had the stuff we needed and the Wi-Fi connection was awesome, spacious rooms, I enjoyed the stuff they're selling at the "souvenir" shop which had amazing things - I even bought my sling bag there. The breakfast was awesome and also appeasing and delicate. I would recommend Ghost Mountain... More

Stayed over on our way to Phinda reserve. Very comfortable, extremely friendly staff from owners management to the cleaners. Nothing to much trouble. Great a la carte dinner - steak quite superb! Good wine selection and a place you should make a point to stay in when visiting this rural area. Rooms extremely comfortable and spotless, will definitely stay again... More

Not a long visit but more of a stop by for lunch on the way to our holiday. Very surprised with professional service. Food was fabulous and very prompt, has a very artistic flare. Lovely premises, we sat in the garden under the trees outside the bar. Lovely grounds and then took a walk down to the river over there... More

We booked at the Inn at the last minute during our honeymoon and it turned out to be the best night we've spent during it. The room was cool, nicely laid out and very clean. The bath was quite awesome after a tiring and dusty day! The boardwalk at the dam with mountain view is quite a relaxing and peaceful... More

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
