We have been lucky enough to stay at my Sisters time share at Sabie River Sun for the past few years and a visit to this restaurant is always a must.This year we enjoyed the food so much that we went more than once and we also recommended it to other people we met.The setting is beautiful,the staff are lovely...

We stayed at Rissington Inn for two nights travelling from Tzaneen in the North down to Swaziland. The Rissington Inn is a very nice English/colonial furbished hotel with a grand bar and a cosy lounge room, which really makes one feel at home immediately. The swimming pool was nice and the free towel service very convenient. Although not too far...

The location is quite not far from Haziview restaurant and Mall, 9-10 minutes drive. However the hotel is in the middle of no where. It will be hard getting out without a car. View is great.... rooms are not updated but comfortable

What is this? "Get at Rissington Week"?! I am not going to tolerate it. What do I say here, in answer to this? We are not even a 3-minute drive from Hazyview's restaurants. What were you driving? A lawn mower? But either way Rissington is hardly in the middle of nowhere. Wow. And why would you choose a hotel in...

Beautiful surrounding, park, you hear mostly monkeys and birds, you can really relax and feel free from stress. Big rooms, amenities ok, but e.g. bath robes and slippers are missing. The food in the restaurant is good, and they offer a good selection. The reason they don't get 5, is that the service was not impressive, no help with heavy...

Thanks for this review. I think it important that we regain some perspective here. We have been training some new front of house staff and whilst there have been some minor issues, we believe we have now resolved them. We employ only from local, rural communities and we have really wonderful cheerful people, who do their very very best at...

Our room was absolutely immense and wonderfully air conditioned, a rarity! Big bed, big sitting area, private balcony overlooking the pool and landscaped grounds. Definitely 5 stars for the property. But the staff needs some work. It took three people to complete our check in. Slowly. The woman who showed us to our room seemed depressed and sluggish. Service in...

Quick comments. I am sorry that your check-in was slow. I have explained in another response to a polite reviewer that we have been doing some training. It is not normally a slow process and our cheerful staff and service are among our most complimented aspects, so I don't know what could have made her unhappy, do you? And I...

The proprietor, Chris, who is also a journalist and writer has a sense of humour, as is evident when you read the information booklet in your room and various notices around the bar and restaurant. The Brits will get it but pity Jonny Foreigner! We are greeted with a warm friendly smile and taken to the bar area, where we...

Once again the Rissington Inn delivered (although we had no doubt it would). This time we went for a Hillside Suite with private pool which we were more in than out. The staff were lovely and the food was great, breakfast and dinner. Get yourself there. Thanks for a great start to our holiday.

We are creatures of associations. We attach things and persons and associate it with memories, good or bad. To me, Rissington Inn is one of those places where I love to look back with the fondest memories of traveling in South Africa. I cannot tell how lucky we were to 'bumped' to this hidden gem whilst looking for a place...

The place is beautiful and the overall feel of the resort is simply amazing. We booked a standard double room and it was a great disappointment, as room was very small and it was smaller than the pictures shown on the website.( So avoid their standard room, if you are looking for a comfortable stay) On our request room was...

I never quite know how to respond politely to reviews that are as obviously nonsensical as this one. Firstly, our standard rooms are called 'budget' rooms, we have only two of them, they are identical and they are exactly as pictured on the website. Obviously - because the photos on the website are taken in those rooms. The budget rooms...

My stay spanned 10 days. The grounds were beautifully manicured and tranquil; my room, called "Ivory", was spacious , clean and quiet; hot water was abundant and air conditioning excellent. The food was very good. The staff was exceptionally helpful.
