We all had a great experience with your hospitality. Thank you for having us as guests. Your location was very central and was walking distance to various restaurants and to the Waterfront. On arrival, we were greeted with friendliness, care and great knowledge of various questions we asked. Great place to stay for a stop over! Much appreciated.

Really great pet friendly accommodation. Would definitely stay in this cottage again. Off street parking was really useful, and nothing was too much trouble, really felt welcomed. Can definitely recommend this

The Inyathi guest lodge was lovely. The owners were friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations for dinner and breakfast. Secure parking and a clean, large self-catering unit were nice. Inside, some things like door latches etc were broken, no soap, and it was quite chilly in the winter - but it was still a very enjoyable place to stay. I'd... More

we had a nice stay generally, although I do not know what rate level room we stayed in. The following can be added: at least 2 chairs for eating at the kitchen table; bathtub mat to avoid slipping;bathtub bar above bath against wall to hold onto;

We felt a shower curtain would have been great. Bedside lamps and top sheet on the bed would have been great. There were not sufficient glasses etc. The braai bin could have been half the size! The courtyard was wonderful and fresh towels on saturday morning was a plus.

We enjoyed our stay, our rooms were very clean and neat and we had our own little courtyard which was lovely. We were in walking distance to the Waterfront and town , very convenient. The owners were very friendly and we will be back with our family next time.

We stayed in Inyathi, when there was a shortage of power - so we sat together with the host and a friend of him discussing half the night about differences in education in german and south-african families - very interesting! I will always keep it in mind. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable, the price was reasonable and the... More

Fantastic accommodation. Granted no views BUT your car is safe, your belongings is safe and you are 2 very safe blocks away from the Waterfront. It is still a work in progress but we have seen what Riaan and Helen is capable of at the previous place and can't wait to see what they have up their sleeve. Very friendly... More
