I would describe this establishment as a "budget motel". It was previously known as Pringles. Only stay there if you are really budget concious! Although the place is clean it is old and even though (according to them) they have had an upgrade it is still only about a 2 star establishment. TV's are flat screen but very small. They... More

This establishment is not a fancy romantic getaway venue. This place is Practical. Acessable. Comfortable. Clean. I may be wrong but I think that the majority of people staying here, do so for only one night. The location is well situated and it is easy and safe to get back onto the N3. I was concerned about possible vehicle and... More

My family and I stopped over at Mountain View Inn and had the most relaxing time here. We have visiting this hotel for around 20 yrs and it's always had good memories for us. It's nice and tidy, very peaceful and a perfect stop when travelling long distance. Everything is accessible. A very big Thank you to Mr Johan Muller... More

We decided to stretch the holiday and sleep over on our way to the South Coast, and booked a room at Mountainview Inn. It turned out that they are situated right at the Bergville One Stop complex - the Spur is right next to their reception. They were very accommodating - arranging for us to get the key later -...

Back and must say better than better. The room i'm in tonight is so good. Where have you been hiding this room. Thank you for making my stay over worth it. This is always a great stop over when traveling between Johannesburg and Durban.

Did not have a booking but pop in. Experience a warm welcome from reception. Was not sure what to expect. But was surprise to find a very nice and clean room. With tea,coffee, soap, shampoo and body lotion in the room. Also with so many restaurants to go to for dinner lunch and breakfast. Will stop there again and recommend... More

We stayed here for one night as a stop-over between Durban and Johannesburg. The inn's purpose is to provide a stopover - they don't claim anything else - and they deliver on their promises. Check-in and -out were super easy. Room was basic, but clean. Location is great as one does not waste any time getting on and off the... More

We arrived at 10.00pm not expecting Mountainview Inn to be open but took a chance anyway. The office was closed but on enquiring further found that one of the security guards keeps the vacant room keys after hours. You pay him up front and he shows you to your room. I was skeptical at first but ended up being pleasantly... More
