The two bed cottage we stayed in was really spacious. Occasionally a little cold but the heaters were useful. It was great to be central and yet have outdoor space. The hosts are really friendly and super helpful in suggesting activities.

Description
Newly acquired, renovated and decorated, Inyathi Guest Lodge Self Catering offer fully equipped Self-Catering Chalets in our highly convenient new location of 38 Trotter Street. Extremely central, but down a quiet More side street away from the hustle and bustle, just two streets (450m) from the Waterfront, Featherbed’s and metres from Gray Street, Woodmill Lane and all the supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants around. Our great new premises is also only a five minute walk to the Lagoon, Thesen Island shops and restaurants, Mitchell’s Brewery and the Knysna High School Fields. Our Self-Catering Chalets follow the uniquely Inyathi, African theme with bright materials, wooden masks & statues, pictures, reed baskets and bowls, beads and wall hangings in every room. All the chalets are non-smoking but each have a private walled in garden/courtyard with individual braai and outside seating & dining area. There are 4 x One Bedroom Chalets (with a double bed), and 3 x Two Bedroom Chalets (with one bedroom with double bed and a second bedroom with two single beds) ideal for families or friends travelling together. The new and improved Inyathi Guest Lodge – Self-Catering, is child and pet friendly, and all chalets are situated at ground level so easily accessible for the elderly or people with mobility difficulties etc. The chalets are uniquely decorated within the theme of traditional African culture. Wooden panelling and statues, pictures, masks and bowls, reed baskets and colourful materials, beads and wall hangings have been placed in every room. All the chalets are non-smoking but each have a private veranda or outside sitting area, to enjoy the abundant birdlife and picturesque environment. Less
