My husband and I booked to stay here as part of our Garden Route tour and mother in law and auntie also joined us in a separate unit. Great units, well equipped, in a secure accommodation block. Friendly staff who were able to help with information and provide a plug adapter (as forgotten!)

The purpose of the trip was for business/research, and the accommodation provided everything needed to make it a comfortable stay. This was particularly true with regards to the central location of the guest house, as well as the cleaning staff who made life a lot easier for us.

We spent four days over Christmas at Inyathi Guest Lodge. Helen and Riaan were incredible hosts, giving tips on the best places to see in the area and helping us in any way they could.
