The room was a nice size and the owners very welcoming. It was a bit hard to find as it is tucked away on a small side road.The breakfast was pretty average but satisfying. Overall though a cosy and welcoming atmosphere.

Always lekker to stay at Ina's! Friendly family, great rooms and a good location. Rooms are comfortable, breakfasts are good and the place is quiet. It feels tucked away even though it centrally located in Umhlanga.

Thank you Ina, Eugene and all the doggies for a lovely stay! Not one negative thing to say about your property! Lovely garden and warm hospitality! Attention to detail. Great location for Indaba accommodation, as this is only a few kilometres away from Getaway Shopping Centre. See you next year, hopefully with the whole team.

I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a business trip taking time out for some holidays. As a lone traveller I was looked after extremely well and the property owners and staff were very helpful, thoughtful and informative. Room 3 where I stayed is simply lovely! Great breakfast, lovely grounds, comfy bed, the only slight niggle being that the wifi doesn't quite always reach all of room 3, but no problem, in the pleasant guest lounge there was a very strong signal!

Thank you very much for the kind review, we also enjoyed having you stay with us. We are in the process of getting a booster for our WiFi so the signal should be better on your next visit.

We were here only a single night. The room was small and plain, but clean and certainly adequate. The grounds are pretty and very nicely kept, and the lodge has a quiet, secluded feeling. Great breakfast and the hosts were very pleasant.

Thank you for the kind review. Not all our rooms are the same size and configuration so when you next visit us perhaps we can accommodate you in one of the bigger rooms. If you go to our website info@gatewaycountrylodge.co.za and look at our Video's and Pictures area you can see 360 degree views of all our rooms and amenities. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon.

My stay at Gateway Country Lodge was really great. From arrival until we left we received such a special service and attention, and my kids loved it as well.

I highly recommend Gateway Country Lodge for a very peaceful and extremely comfortable stay.

If you are looking for a peaceful stay, in nature, away from the hustle and bustle, then this is where you want to be. The trees with all the birds going about their business, sitting on the verandah, relaxing, reading, and generally just recharging our batteries. We love the setting. The trees make it cool and refreshing and the pool is also available. Will definately always go back there. I would recommend maybe in room 3 a small microwave oven as we like to make milk coffee and maybe heat a snack to eat later in the afternoon.

Thanks for your kind words, we love it here as well. Although we have a microwave specifically for the guests in the hall we have also built a lapa in which we will put a microwave as well. Thanks for the advice.
