Our Umhlanga Bed and Breakfast

We opened our doors as a B&B in 2008 and have attracted many business and leisure guests from all over South Africa and abroad.

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. We extensively redesigned the house for individual privacy, a homely atmosphere and privacy.

We have a variety of rooms offering private entrances with verandas. We also have a guest lounge with an honesty bar for your relaxation. We are more secluded than the Durban hotels and therefore have the benifit of peace and quiet after a long day at the beach or in the office.
