Tsitsikamma Village Inn
, situated in the beautiful Storms River village, is the perfect accommodation for couples, families, and adventurers alike. The Tsitsikamma Village is home to a variety of restaurants, its very own microbrewery, and is also a great place to stay if you are planning to explore and sight-see around Storms River.
The unique Tsitsikamma Village Inn was originally established in 1946, and has been hosting travelers since 1841. This privately owned and managed hotel consists of village-style rooms, where each cottage is individually decorated and has its own garden matching the specific colonial building style. The property also offers Swiss style chalets built around their own village square.
The hotel offers a variety of onsite restaurants, a cafe, a pub and a microbrewery! The little ones have a beautiful swimming pool and jungle gym, as well as a games room in the village square.
The main building, which traces its roots back to 1845, has a spacious dining room, incorporating the De Oude Martha Restaurant, the Hunters Pub, Cafe Bacchus and Guest Lounge. The Tsitsikamma Village Inn offers a fun-filled adventure option for the more active guest and is popular both with incentive and conference groups. Close to the Tsitsikamma National Park at Storms River Mouth, the Big Tree and forest hikes.
Marilyn`s 60`s diner takes you back in time, and is a themed tribute to the great Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. The diner is famous for its burgers, milkshakes, cocktails and fantastic décor.
Neighboring the 60`s diner is the village`s latest addition: The Tsitsikamma Microbrewery. Our microbrewery motto, "Not all beers are created equal!", guides us in the process of making three of our very own craft beers available on tap. Contact us about our daily tasting sets and brewery tours available. To add a little extra to your booking with us at the village inn, if you order a beer during your stay, we`ll deliver it to your room!
The Hotel is renowned for its good food and old world charm. It has been a favorite for many a year!
Accommodation at Tsitsikamma Village Inn: Premier Rooms (6):
De Oude Pastorie x 4 | Albert & Victoria Honeymoon Cottage x 2
The Premier Rooms are comprised of 4 rooms in De Oude Pastorie, and 2 rooms in the Albert and Victoria Honeymoon Cottage. De Oude Pastorie rooms are all double story, and have the familiar sash windows and flat-roofed feature of most Southern Cape villages. The honeymoon suites are in a late Victorian styled building, and also have beautiful sash windows.
Village Rooms (20):
The Village Square offers beautifully decorated rooms, each unique in design. The building resembles traditional building styles of the early Cape Colon, and the rooms are decorated accordingly. These rooms include Hanover, Drostdy, Ikaya, Arnistin and the Victorian Cottages.
Barn Rooms (7):
The beautifully decorated Barn rooms date back to the 1800’s, and were originally used as stables for travelers’ horses while journeying along the Garden Route. The rooms were converted into the cosy bedrooms they are now in 1996, and offer beautiful views during your stay.
Log Rooms (16):
WEST - double storey wooden rooms x 8 | EAST - double storey wooden rooms x 8
Our Log Rooms are Swiss-style, double story chalets built in 1988. The building is situated around a fountain, and offers beautiful views from all rooms. We believe these rooms provide an experience that emphasises on the wood-cutting legacy Tsitsikamma is so proud of.

Double rooms on the barns very well renovated and comfortable.

Our room was very spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The surroundings are beautiful and really well looked after. The restaurant meal was delicious and we liked the fact that the prices were still 'South African' and not hiked up due to the number of tourists who stay at Tsitsikamma Village - and Rochelle was a very pleasant, efficient waitress. We'll be back!
