Our Umhlanga Bed and Breakfast

Opened its doors as a B&B establishment in 1999 and has attracted many business and leisure guests from South Africa and abroad.

Extensively redesigned for individual privacy, Gateway Country Lodge was the original home of the Sargent family, descended from the early sugar farming pioneers and was in the family for over 30 years.

Ina and Eugene Requilet will make your stay in Umhlanga comfortable and memorable and hope that you will make this Bed and Breakfast your regular stop over. The traditional style Lodge is set on two acres of indigenous and exotic garden overlooking tranquil farmlands, with rolling lawns, a swimming pool and an abundance of butterfly and bird life.
