Starting the year with a bang!
Quarry Lake Inn once again had the privilege of hosting competitors and supporters attending the annual Half Ironmen. This popular sporting event draws athletes and visitors from various parts of the country. East London’s generous landscapes, beautiful river mouths and scenic coastlines, make it an ideal and popular destination for major sporting events.

Season's Greetings !
The year is drawing to a close and we have been blessed with some excellent rains on the coast of the Eastern Cape. Our gardens are glowing and vibrant with lush green vegetation and bursts of colour. Our water tank has filled to the brim after 60 mm of rain this week and contains 160,000 litres of pure filtered rain-water for reticulation to our rooms. Holiday season is almost upon us and our family rooms are available for those overnight stays with children. Read our Christmas Newsletter here.
Spring Is Here!
Spring has arrived and all around us there are signs of new life. Here at the Quarry Lake Inn, we recently had the privilege of spotting a pair of Cape Clawless Otters, swimming in harmony together. These otters swim up the small river from the sea, into the Quarry Lake to find fish. This early morning sighting is a rare one and therefore very special. The Egyptian geese have also swelled their numbers to 14, of which 12 are almost fully-fledged juveniles about to take to the wing. Quarry Lake Inn’s lush natural environment offers the perfect setting for those who need to escape the city’s hustle and bustle this coming holiday. Some of our rooms have sleeper-couches and are perfect for family getaways! Read our latest newsletter here.
