Set in spacious grounds of colorful gardens, shady trees and with views down the valley, you are guaranteed a warm welcome at Rissington Inn. Informal but attentive hospitality means you can relax and unwind after a day’s exploring with a drink on your veranda or lounging by the pool soaking up some sunshine.
The thatched farmhouse building is full of character, with high ceilings and wooden furniture and simple but homely decor, while each guest room has its own personality and charm.
Rissington Inn is the perfect place to dine and rest your head after a long day of exploring the Panorama Route or exploring the Great Escarpment. This owner-run lodge is a perfect example of warm South African hospitality.

The property has just a handful of guest rooms available in various configurations to accommodate single travelers, couples or families comfortably. Each room is decorated in the same style but with individual furnishings to give them their own character. With en suite bathrooms, refrigerators, hair dryers, ceiling fans and full sized toiletries, guests are sure to feel well provided for. The larger rooms and Garden and Hillside Suites feature generous verandas with comfortable chairs as well as hammocks or daybeds in addition to the standard features. Though there are no TVs in the rooms at Rissington, there's a laid-back bar with a TV attached to the main house.
Tucked just outside Hazyview, Rissington Inn is an ideal base to start or end the Panorama Route in Mpumalanga.

All guests of the lodge are reserved a table for dinner at the time of room booking for convenience.
