About Zoete Inval Traveller's Lodge

Zoete Inval is one of those places that is REally “out of the box”, because it is simply “home”… to the owners and travellers alike. The Dutch name means “sweet drop in” or sweet welcome. Serving traveller’s needs since 1993, it is still going strong. Their REtro-ECO theme runs throughout. Heritage furniture and quality linens coupled with ECO-creative touches provides “home from home” comfort. Gardens envelop the buildings and the veggie/herb patch provides fresh gREens year round. Touches like the REpurposed wine barrel hammock and the REtyrement furniture ensure REst and RElaxation for weary travelers or holiday makers. Healthy REfueling starts with their “kefir” enriched breakfast with homemade meusli, preserves and fresh fruit. Don’t worry, a protein power punch is available too! REdiscover the garden hideouts and smoker’s corners awaiting to swallow you in the REfreshing gREenery. They are eager to share the practical, simple and fulfilling world of RE with everyone. Zoete Inval Traveller's Lodge is situated in the popular whale-watching town of Hermanus, in the Cape Overberg.

very nice, cosy and was pleasant to stay there. Breakfast was plain and simple but to pay exstra R10.00 for a boiled egg was bit high. others that was also there agreed.
