Biggest drawback of this hotel is it's is close location to very noisy Main Road and next to a garage.Will help if they leave something in room for mosquitos.They do have a nice courtyard garden and the reception staff are friendly.

Sleeping in the lodge was not really possible, you feel to sleep directly on the very bussy road. The bedroom was dirty, the toilet insanitary. The yard is beautiful, the people are friendly. The location urgently needs a refurbishment

Dear Heinrich, Thanks for taking the time to review us (both on the website you booked through and on trip advisor). Your comments caused us some concern, and we are glad that we have the opportunity here to respond. We do find it quite strange and very frustrating when people who stay at our lodge, wait until weeks after their... More

Rooms around trees - Rooms In Trees. Rustic - well maintained - Clean. Only complaint was not enough electrical outlets. When you plan your trip - go on eBay and check out the South Africa outlets cube taps which allow you to plug in a variety of US and European plugs. Not expensive - but ship from China. Hot breakfast... More

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The location is very convenient and provides free parking. Our chalet was very spacious and cosy and we loved the Victorian bathtub! Staff were very friendly and they made a great breakfast. We would definitely recommend this lodge!

We loved our stay at Inyathi. The rooms are set in a beautiful, lush garden setting with pathways leading through the trees. It's like an oasis, right on the N2. The rooms are lovely and comfortable. Helen and Riaan were very welcoming and friendly - and helpful! They helped us to refine our plans so that we were able to... More

Personnel was very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean, hoever no heating in the room, for August in South Africa this is not suffient. Guest house is directly and the N2, that means even in the night the cars are going.

Very central location with nice wooden chalets. Nicely decorated rooms, friendly staff and adequate breakfast. The rooms are tiny but nice, the atmosphere is fantastic and an added bonus is discount vouchers given by reception for activities around Knysna.
