Stopped here on the way to the Kruger after flying in to Nelspruit. The Inn was quite a revelation and an excellent way to recover from our travelling. The food was good and the staff helpful and friendly. They even managed to supply a decent meal despite the lack of electricity due to a lightning storm in the area.
The only downside to the visit, which is no fault of the Rissington, is the poor state of the roads in the area and some corrupt traffic police locally and on the road to the Kruger who try to extract money from tourists by various means. (They tried but got none from us.) If visiting some of the local tourist spots it is probably worth hiring a driver to take away this stress of such an encounter.
