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.

We stayed in Inyathi, when there was a shortage of power - so we sat together with the host and a friend of him discussing half the night about differences in education in german and south-african families - very interesting! I will always keep it in mind. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable, the price was reasonable and the...

Fantastic accommodation. Granted no views BUT your car is safe, your belongings is safe and you are 2 very safe blocks away from the Waterfront. It is still a work in progress but we have seen what Riaan and Helen is capable of at the previous place and can't wait to see what they have up their sleeve. Very friendly...

The hosts were great, very friendly, chatty and informative. Fantastic location with easy walking access to the waterfront area for restaurants and to main street for shops. Large spacious lodge and outside area. Very good value. Unfortunately the wifi didn't reach our lodge.

Inyathi is a cute, tiny compound of self-catering "chalets" located right off Grey St and within walking distance of most places of note. I imagine if you're like us, you won't spend much time in the "chalet" however it has all of the essentials, workable living room and kitchen, comfy bed, and small outdoor patio with a mini-grill. The owners,...

Stayed at their self service chalets in Trotter Street, for 5 nights. We chose budget option and the 1 bedroom place was nice and cozy for the price we paid. No dstv. Walking distance to Mall and supermarkets as well as the waterfront. Overall impression: very satisfied
