My husband and I had the most wonderful 4 night stay at Ghost Mountain Inn. What impressed us from the moment we stepped into Reception was the friendliness of the staff! Nothing is too much trouble - from an early check-in request, to packed dinners and allowing us a later breakfast after a game drive! This was greatly appreciated and... More

As we are finding as we travel SA there are these amazing properties located in such remote areas. As we turned in off the main road into the secure location the Inn looked so out of place for the country we just travelled through. We stayed for 2 nights taking in game drives and a local village visit. The Inn... More

The Ghost Mountain Inn has always been there, a landmark on the Natal North Coast, but has recently had a complete refurbish and is absolutely delightful. We had two nights there in September and enjoyed the ambience, the lovely gardens, comfortable rooms, excellent massage in the spa, charming staff and excellent food.

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.
