Ghost Mountain Inn, Mkuze
Relex & Recharge
We stopped for lunch at this hotel about a year ago on a flying visit through Mkuze and were determined to come back for a weekend. I am so glad we did! Set amidst picturesque gardens against the stunning backdrop of the Lebombo mountain range and the eerie ghost mountain from which the hotel gets its name, the GMI is perfect for a relaxing weekend. The hotel is 5 minutes from the Mkuze airstrip and an easy 3+hour drive from Durban. The rooms are well appointed and spotless - robes and slippers would have been a nice touch. The food was excellent. Mosquitoes were a bit of a problem. The service was generally acceptable, although we did notice a marked deterioration in service levels since our last visit - the service could definitely benefit from more of a personal touch and more management intervention. For instance, rather than being escorted to our room on the other side of the resort and being offered help with our bags, the duty receptionist (Sifiso) merely pointed in the general direction of the room and left us to find our way ! On the Saturday evening, the lone barman was expected to serve all the tables whilst waiting bar - this resulted in more than an hour long wait for our snack order. Both these issues could have been easily resolved with more active/attentive/effective management. All in all, this was a most enjoyable stay and, bar the minor service irritations, this hotel definitely has a lot to recommend it. We look forward to our next visit.

Honest opinion
M family had a lovely time visiting surrounding areas, staff there are exceptional although the insects and bed bugs really need to be sorted out. Or else that 4 star would be more like 3 stars if not for the helping staff.
