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.

We stayed here for one night in October and had a very pleasant and comfortable stay. The owners were great, very informative and helpful. Stayed in a one bed studio and it was very spacious and well equipped. Wish we were there longer to make use of the braii facilities out the back.

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.

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...
