Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Umkomaas, the food and of course the diving at Aliwal Shoal. We hope you get the opportunity to visit South Africa again, and of course we would love to see you again.

Stayed here for several nights while in town for business. Great B&B! Mickey and the staff are wonderful. Rooms were very nice and the proximity to everything was perfect. Had a couple of meals, beer, and was introduced to a Bray. Would love to return to dive with the Raggies.

Beautiful guest house with great rooms of various sizes. Very good breakfast with all that heart could desire. The owners, Mick and Tania, are just great people, it feels like home, they are always helpful and have great preparation tips, what to do in the surrounding Sun
Mick Clark is a well known professional fisherman and teaches the different ways of fishing to kayaking and jet skiing, he has nearly always delicious with fish from his trips.

First time in South Africa (2007) we found this place by pure chance. Planned to stay one night, had to go after four. This time around a stay in Umkomaas was a no brainer (even if we don't dive) due to this place. We do travel a lot and this place is one of our favourites. The accomodation itself is very cosy and homelike and the owner Mick is a genuine nice guy that will be more then happy to help you with everything from where to get a Bunnie (hollowed bread with curry) to diving trips. My only complaint is that Umkomaas is so darn far away from Sweden... Thanks a lot Mick, hope to see you soon again! Did & Otto

We prebooked some accommodation in Unkomaas as our base for diving from, but it was such a mistake. The place was terrible.

So on the first night in the terrible place we looked on the web again and found Umkomaas Guest House, we called Mick the owner who was really helpful, he even picked us up to go and have a look at the guest house. We were convinced as soon as we saw it. We cancelled the other accommodation the next morning and moved straight away (even though we got no refund), and it was the best thing we could have done.
As we finished diving around 1pm we knew we had a lot of time to spend in the room as for us there wasnt so much to more to do but dive in Umkomaas, so we needed somewhere nice and we found it!

The rooms were really nice and clean, all with there own TV and DVD player and kettle etc Breakfasts were great, the whole place was great!

Do yourselves a favour, if you are looking for a room in Umkomaas there is no where better ( I looked) than the Umkomaas Guest house. Just stay here!

Its a shame there arent more reviews on here as all the other guests we met there loved it too!

Thanks very much to Mick and his wife for saving our trip!
