|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.
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.
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.
Our Guest House in Durban is within easy driving distance from The Durban ICC, multiple sports stadiums, golden beaches, the new airport, Sibaya Casino, Craft Markets, and UShaka Marine World.
