"This is the second year we have stopped over at the Umtali County Inn and enjoyed the dinner available. This is one of the main reasons to stay there as it is not necessary to drive and look for a place to eat after a long drive from Johannesburg. The management and staff are all very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this Inn as a good honest reasonably priced option."


"Our Nights Stay at Umtali"

"Not knowing Aliwal North at all and having to book via the internet is always a daunting task as I have had the experience of seeing a place that looked absolutely stunning on the internet but turned out to be a complete dump. However with, The Umtali Country Lodge, everything you see is exactly what you get. It was rewarding to come home after a long day at the golf course to find your room warm, spotless and sqeaky clean. The food is scrumptious. The hosts were also very friendly and accommodating. I won't hesitate to recommend this establishment to anyone. If my son gets chosen for the golf tournament next year - we will be going back there without any hesitation."


"What a pleasant surprise awaited us"

(South Africa) Mrs Gray | 12 January 2011

"After an early start in Johannesburg and a long drive, what a pleasant surprise awaited us in Aliwal North. Having never seen the town before it was nerve wrecking to take pot luck and book what you believed looked like a good option but who would know until you arrived. Especially as I had taken on the responsibility of booking for 3 of us. What a pleasure to be greeted by clean white buildings with rolling green lawns and neat gardens and the nicest person on reception. An old hotel but so clean you could have eaten off the floor. Cleanliness is next to Godliness I was taught and how true it was in this case."


"Comfortable accommodation"

(South Africa) Mrs Barry | 2 November 2009

"Very comfortable and very clean. The Hosts were most helpful when our booking went wrong, and we were told not to worry - it was all sorted out by morning in the most un stressful way. Thank you. Would recommend this stop over to anyone."


"An unexpected Surprise"

(South Africa) Mr Trew | 9 January 2008

"Our journey was to be from Johannesburg to Port Elizabeth with a halfway stopover en route, usually Colesburg, but the whole area was fully booked. Forced to look elsewhere, we found the Umtali Country Inn in Aliwal North. What a surprise awaited us! From the moment we checked in at reception we felt comfortably at home. The room was all we could have wanted and the food (dinner and breakfast) left us well satisfied. The staff went out of their way to attend to our needs.The relaxed atmosphere of the swimming pool area was a welcome relief after the long journey. We would have gladly stayed another night, but time did not permit. In future we will be happy to give Colesburg a miss, and take the road less travelled. The short additional distance was not even noticed."


"Umtali Lodge"

(South Africa) Mr dawson | 3 May 2007

"A very pleasant stay with attentive staff who were eager to be of service. Although it seems close to the road, there is very little traffic noise. The room seemed to have just been refurbished, and little touches, like ivy leaves on the towels, made a difference"


"The Umtali Inn"

(Canada) Mrs Newton | 17 October 2006

"There was a group of 10 of us looking for accommodation in Aliwal North for one night. We found The Umtali Inn to be adequate for our purposes. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and the rooms, while basic, were quite suitable. The surroundings were pleasant and the breakfast was very good..."
