Shower was broken but other then that very nice place. Easy walking distance to shops and safe. Clean rooms and quiet nice place to get away from it all once in the lodge you will never say that you are in a suburb.

The staff are super friendly, the complex safe, and the apartments clean (lovely private courtyards too)and we couldn't have got it more spot on I don't think. My only negative feedback is it was really hot so would have liked...

Inyathi Guest Lodge is well-positioned in Knysna, within easy walking distance of the Waterfront and restaurants. The self-catering unit is well-equipped and comfortable. The staff is friendly and ready to give helpful advice.

We spent four days over Christmas at Inyathi Guest Lodge. Helen and Riaan were incredible hosts, giving tips on the best places to see in the area and helping us in any way they could. They really made the stay wonderful. The cottage was just what we needed – a large kitchen, a back garden with a brai and a...

Owners were extremely helpful in providing info about where to eat and what to see around Knysna. Location is an easy walk to the waterfront and just a few blocks to many restaurants. Rooms are simple but have the basics and are clean. Area felt safe. Would stay there again.

This was our second stay in the Inyathi Guest Lodge. It is situated in a perfect spot between the Quay and the High Street. The individual chalets are comfortable and well resourced. The private braai spaces are brilliant although the weather was not good enough for us to make full use of them while we were there. Riaan and Helen...
