Accommodation comfortable and a good breakfast served. Very friendly hosts. The setting makes one feel as if you are in the country rather than in a town and is pleasant. At the same time the location is close to basically all the amenities available in town.

Nice. Expected a Treetop suite as explained in website but it was more of a chalet on a slop. Not a matter as it was lovely. A bit cold in winter. But charming all the same. Shame we did not get to experience the site on a sunny day as it was rainy when we were there.

We had a lovely stay at Inyathi Lodge. The room was spacious, well equipped and the bed very comfortable. We loved the spacious braai area and made use of it every night. We enjoyed the nature feel of the place with all the trees. Lovely place and excellent value for money.

A very nice and stylish lodge at the Garden Route. Riaan is a very kind host and makes an excellent breakfast. Unfortunately are sooms rooms too loud because they are near the open braai and sitting place. But at another room it must be an excellent accommodation.

When you head to Knysna, you expect to unwind and ease into a holiday frame of mind. This is exactly what takes place at the Inyathi Guest Lodge! Privacy in the centre of town at great value! Plus the best breakfast in town!

Thank you to Helen, Riaan and the Inyathi team for a fantastic stay! A group of us stayed at the lodge for 4 nights over the Knysna Oyster Festival and we couldn't have chosen a better spot. The lodge is within easy walking distance of everywhere we needed to be - Knysna is a lovely town and there is so... More

The log cabins are snuggly hidden amongst lovely gardens. Basic, but clean accommodation. Riaan and Helen are such stunning hosts. You feel welcome from the moment you check in. Serves lovely breakfast with the best bacon and coffee!

Friendly hosts, went out of their way to help. Inyathi Lodge has a beautiful tropical feel and walking distance to everything you need in Knysna. Went for a mountain biking weekend, and safe parking to leave bikes in car. We will definitely stay there again.

This is a very cute quirky place to stay in central Knysna. Located central to Knysna this is the ideal place to stay to explore the surrounds and also be within easy reach of restaurants and shops. Our host was extremely attentive and gave great tips for sightseeing. Also the room was clean and comfortable and the premises kept beautifully... More

Sadly we only had a very short time to stay here, but loved our quirky room and the bath was fantastic. The wifi didn't reach up the hill, so we had to sit outside the main building to check email/Internet, which was a bit dreary on a rainy day. And the gate closing at 9pm takes no prisoners. Luckily the... More
