“Absolutely wonderful-”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

After reading a few rteviews about Rissington Inn , I was concernedf it might be rather mediocre - not at all- it is a beautiful place and more like a 5 star hotel- evrything is thoughtfully provided and the service is wonderful. We had a Garden suiye overlooking a beautiful lawned area - the room was large and the outside shower was a great treat . They had thought of everything in the room including home-made cookies and even sent us on our jorney with complimentary shot glasses and a bottle of port. I can'r recommend Rissington highly enough.

Wonderful place to stay. Beautiful gardens. Nice rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food menus were excellent as were their award winning wine menu. Nice library and bar areas to relax. Great breakfasts!

Room Tip: We had a garden suite and a superior room - both were very good with good size beds.

Quite the most lovely place and a beautiful location, great base for exploring the surrounding areas. Its an unusual and secluded place, very quiet, staff very friendly and will go to any lengths to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Food was excellent, crocodile curry was fab as was the lamb tagine! Menus available all day and mix and match for kids and adults alike. The award winning Wine list was extensive and was thoroughly enjoyed!

The history book of Rissington Inn was a very interesting find in the library and definitely worth a read!

Room Tip: We had two rooms a Superior room and a garden suite but to be honest we thought the garden suite was...

Rissington inn is a wonderful place, a great location to see Blyde River Canyon and hidden away so that it is still so peaceful. We were greeted with a refreshing mango juice and then shown our room. We spent the mornings sight-seeing and the afternoons by the quiet pool or soaking up the grounds from our veranda. The food was lovely and the staff friendly. Our first night we had dinner by the pool under the stars which added to our stay. I am looking forward to staying there again in the future as it was a highlight for me on my visit to South Africa.

Staying for the first time at Rissington, together with our friends we had 4 wonderful nights, lovely garden rooms with a stunning view over the mountains, peaceful but for the resident squirrel family, which of cause came first thus earning the right to be there. There is a wonderful atmosphere and the staff are friendly and efficient and willing to do the little extra to make it special. Good menu with lots to choose from and the food was excellent. It is definitely not the last time we have visited Rissington.

Room Tip: The garden rooms are very nice

Perfectly positioned to pop into Kruger and Blyde River Canyon, this is an Oasis of comfort and service, beautifully positioned on a hillside with fantastic views for many miles.
The staff are friendly and will go to any lengths to ensure your stay is enjoyable, the food is superb with an excellent choice.
Got to be the best value for money for miles around, total luxury for B&B prices.
Can't wait to visit again!

Room Tip: If available book a Hillside Suite, excellent value and views

Lovely country inn in beautiful setting of landscaped gardens with expansive mountain views.The inn has a wonderful atmosphere with friendly staff and the restaurant has a varied menu with good food.
The inn lacks some creature comforts such as AC ( at least in our room ), which was not a problem in our stay ( late summer ) but would likely be in higher temperatures.
A great location from which to explore the Kruger and Blyde River Canyon areas.

Thanks for this. Glad you had a good time. All our garden suites and hillside suites have air-conditioning and the rest have ceiling fans so anybody needing aircon should be careful to specify although it rarely gets so hot as to be uncomfortable. Otherwise I think all the creature comforts are in place! Hope to see you again next time you are down our way.
