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

Staff was very helpful and friendly, room no. 9 was spacious and bright with own private terrace. We got used to the situation with the shower, which was just a small cabin in the wall and there was no real door you could close to the toilet. What we really did not like was the carpet in the room and... More

We had a great nights stay at Inyathi Lodge. The hosts were very accommodating, especially on the short notice we had booked.The room we stayed in was spacious and very characterful, even though the establishment is on the main road, the wooden build made it feel like a log cabin in the forest. This is a great place to stay... More

Found this place while driving around Knysna looking for accommodation as this was one of the nights we hadn't pre-booked. The "Luxury Accommodation" on the sign had us worried we might be paying a bit more than at most of our previous B&Bs - at R375 per person however those worries were unjustified. A good wifi connection was also available.... More

We always like to stay at Inyathi while in Knysna. We love the African Style of this place and many of our activities we can do by foot so there is no need to use the car. Maybe we come back next year.

Really enjoyed staying at Inyathi guest house. It was a very neat little place, and the fact that it was just off of the highway did not really bug us with too much noise at all. Had a good braai the evening, and the breakfast was pretty good the next morning as well. It might not be everyone's cup of... More

Inyathi is interesting and central and I think good value esp with breakfast but be aware it is ON the N2. I booked a large double 6 months in advanced and requested a quiet room if possible. I was put in Number 11 and have never been in such a loud room 11 is the closest to the road and... More
