“Weekend stay at Gateway Country Lodge”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Gateway Country Lodge was like staying in a home away from home. The hosts Ina and Eugene are very friendly and accommodating assisting us with loads of info about things to do and KZN in general. The rooms are spacious, clean and high quality linen. A delicious breakfast is served in a garden setting with friendly staff. We will definitely be back.
Regards
Neville And Barbara

The GCL was ideal for our purposes. Ina and Eugene were very accommodating and also very flexible when we decided to go to Game Reserve for 2 nights. Homely atmosphere, very attentive and helpful with great local knowledge and recommendations.

Stayed one night as a couple and had a very comfortable and pleasant experience. The room was comfortable, with lovely outdoor surroundings. The staff were personable and accommodating, and I would recommend this Guest House for potential visitors.

I had a wonderful stay!
The rooms are very neat and tidy, it has a home-like feeling.
I loved the garden and the 'stoep' where I could enjoy it thoroughly.
The breakfast and service is very good.
I would recommend it to anyone.

The rooms are neat and clean. The owners are always friendly. The breakfast is perfect to strat your day with. Always quite with a welcome atmosphere. It is centrally located in Umhlanga very close to Gateway Mall. All my busness trips to Durban since 2012 are booked at Gateway Country Lodge and will continue to be book at the Gateway Country Lodge going farward.

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.
