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...

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.

Really great pet friendly accommodation. Would definitely stay in this cottage again. Off street parking was really useful, and nothing was too much trouble, really felt welcomed. Can definitely recommend this

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...

We felt a shower curtain would have been great. Bedside lamps and top sheet on the bed would have been great. There were not sufficient glasses etc. The braai bin could have been half the size! The courtyard was wonderful and fresh towels on saturday morning was a plus.

We enjoyed our stay, our rooms were very clean and neat and we had our own little courtyard which was lovely. We were in walking distance to the Waterfront and town , very convenient. The owners were very friendly and we will be back with our family next time.
