We took all our family (a party of 8 in total). We found the staff very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. A very relaxing place to stay, the food and wines are both first class. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable with stunning views. We even had a bath in the bedroom, as well... More

Having stayed at The Rissington Inn with my wife and my mother-in-law last year (2014), I brought a mate with me from Australia this year (2015). We were meeting friends from Sabie Park and Hazyview, and the Rissington's restaurant was decided upon as the venue for dinner. It seemed sensible to stay the night here. We stayed in the room...

In a travel to Eastern and Southern Africa I stayed three days at the Rissington Inn in Hazyview to take trips to Swaziland and Kruger National Park. It was pure magic. The cabins didn't have number, but names. They were cozy, comfortable, with a warm old-fashioned touch. The place was quiet and inviting. The food at night was first-rate, accompanied... More

This place is a hidden gem and a perfect stop on your way to a safari! We loved the room and how quite our stay was. We only stayed for one night and there is an elephant rescue farm nearby that's a must visit. The only bad part is that the Elephant Whisper Farm seems to be all there is... More

Thanks for the review and I am really glad that you appreciated our fine place, our great food and our fun showers! As far as Things to Do in Hazyview are concerned, in addition to Elephant Whispers, there is a seemingly endless list: rafting, quad-biking, a reptile park, horse-riding, the skyway trail, bush walks with our environmental expert, a zipline...

We had a wonderful time at your establishment. Great rooms, delicious food, loved the picnic breakfast as we drove through Kruger National Park. Good service. The location was perfect, 10 minutes from Phabeni Gate, close to mall. Thanks, we'll visit again... The Cockrells

Our visits to the Kruger park just wouldn't be the same without a night at Rissington before and after. And this year was no exception. The warm welcome, spacious and beautifully appointed rooms, cosy bar and excellent restaurant are all just as good as ever and we still can't imagine staying anywhere else. This year we were travelling with some... More

We arrived at Rissington after an overnight flight from London and a 4 hour drive from Johannesburg somewhat tired and a little stressed , however after a short while all the above started to fade. On checking into the Sycamore Suite the feeling of being back in Africa was sublime, any tensions earlier felt were quickly diminished. The room had... More

Only stayed here one night at the start of our holiday to SA - just wished it could have been longer. We were given a beautiful room which I am sure had a great view but it was dark both when we arrived and when we left. We had our first meal in SA which was delicious and enjoyed great... More

Thanks Lyn. I am so glad you saw those hyena young - they were gone only a few days after you were there so you did well. A fabulous sighting wasn't it? Like little bald moles running and playing in the culvert in just the way puppies do. Magic. Getting very dry here but the game-viewing is as good as... More

Sadly we only had 1 night at the Rissington Inn, we will definately be back some time! We arrived in a monster rainstorm, which hardly stopped before we left - so much so we didn;t think we would be able to get back up the driveway to make our flight - which would definately not have been a disaster! Great... More
