“Great for rest or play.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

Very good location for Kruger. Lovely basic clean accommodation. The menus is excellent as well as the standard of food and wine. The views from the room are brilliant as you watch the wild life.
Will return ...

Room Tip: Upgrade to a room with a view.

This is a very tranquil, relaxed and most. Pleasant place to stay, and very convenient for early entry to Kruger National Park and other fantastic Mpumulanga attractions. The staff are wonderful and it feels like being home from home. The rooms are spacious, rustic, clean and pleasant to stay in. There are no tv's in the room, but really the environment is so pleasant, a tv is the last thing one want. And then.....there is the food. Wow! I have stayed in hundreds of Hotels in my life time, and the breakfast surpasses all - gourmet food with a home cooked feel- most delicious . The lunch and evening meal is of equal standard - very very good. If you don't enjoy the food and atmosphere here then you don't appreciate good food, period. A great place to stay

Room Tip: Overlooking the open felt space is good

We spent only two nights at the Rissington but it was enough to tell us we shall be going back!
Superb, peaceful and relaxed stay. The food was first class and the staff were 'the best'. Here is a hotelier who knows what he's doing.

My husband and I spent one nice at the Rissington in following our Safari week in Kruger Park. Had we known how much we would have enjoyed the beautiful grounds, laid-back vibe, lovely food, and wonderful staff, we would most certainly have booked to stay longer. Located just one short mile off of the busy hazy view Road, set on a lovely vista overlooking green hills, the Inn is a welcoming oasis. After checking in by signing the register and being offered a refreshing drink, my husband and I retreated to the balcony over the bar and played boardgames and sipped lovely wine until dinner time. Rissingtin Inn is just that kind of place. Kick back and relax. The food was fabulous, highly recommend the crocodile curry!! Our room was clean spacious comfortable with beautiful linens. Just a note though, not all rooms have air-conditioning you might want to inquire before hand. Also, only the family cottages have TVs. Absolutely not a problem because TVs would only distract from the purpose of stank as such a laid back establishment. For those who need to stay connected however wireless is available in rooms and in the main house. Overall, loved it and would be very happy to visit again should be be in the area.

This is the 4th time I have stayed at Rissington Inn and once again I was impressed by the friendly welcome, personal touches, large comfortable rooms and delicious food. Conveniently situated to the Kruger Park and other attractions like the Blyde River canyon, Pilgrims Rest and Bourkes Luck.

I will be back !

Room Tip: The Garden rooms have the best views

We used this as a stop off on the way back to Johannesburg from the Timbavati. The grounds are nice rather than spectacular, the suite we had was spacious and comfortable. The food was good,and the dining area very nice. Would definitely stay again.
