Whoso turns, as I, this evening, turn to God to praise and pray, while Jove’s planet rises yonder, silent over Africa. Robert Browning
The rooms at Rissington Inn all have their own individual styles and have en suite bathrooms and a full range of facilities. Importantly, all have ceiling fans.
So it's sundowners in the bar, a delicious dinner in the restaurant, coffee and a nightcap, before retiring to your comfortable room with the night sounds of Africa to lull you into a peaceful sleep.
Combretum and Kapok – The Courtyard Rooms
Our smallest rooms each have a queen size bed and a small verandah. Bathrooms have Victorian baths. These rooms are ludicrously reasonably-priced!
Saligna, Euphorbia and Camelfoot – The Original Larger Rooms
Each of these rooms has its own individual style and all are situated in the shady, thatched former-tobacco barn, next to the main house.
They are cool in summer and warm in winter and are furnished throughout with antiques and interesting pictures from around the world. Each has its own small verandah.
Baobab, Mahogany and Kigelia – The Newer Larger Rooms
With long views and verandahs. These are recent additions. Furnished with a queen-size bed and a single bed, these rooms can accommodate three people in great comfort. The rooms are light and airy. The romantic Victorian bath is in the bedroom and the shower in the bathroom looks straight down the valley.
Sycamore and Ivory - The Original Garden Suites.
These rooms are very spacious, with large verandahs and long views. One has two queen size beds and the other a huge superking-sized bed and a single bed. Bathrooms have Victorian baths and walled-off outside showers.
Acacia, Coral, Ebony and Teak - The Thatched Garden Suites
Under thatch and surrounded by trees and shrubs, tucked away near the donga. Light and airy, these rooms have high roofs, Victorian baths, outside showers and plenty of space.
Acacia & Coral have a superking-sized bed and a single bed. Ebony and Teak have two queen sized beds. These rooms are suitable for 2, 3 or 4 people. Acacia is also suitable for wheelchair access
The Hillside Suites
Pumalanga and Shonalanga are the pride of Rissington Inn. Each suite has two bedrooms, two en-suite bathrooms (with our signature Victorian baths) and an outside shower. Both suites have a spacious sitting room, a large stoep, a sun terrace, minibars, tea and coffee facilities and a television with full DStv. The two suites share a private swimming pool and the best views on the property.
Pumalanga and Shonalanga are both ideal for families or for two couples travelling together and each suite is able to accommodate from two to five people.
