Our Story

Jan & Marilyn van der Velden have owned and operated Zoete Inval Travellers Lodge since 1993. One of the only 5 accommodation establishments in the community at the time, the business has gone from strength to strength. It still offers the same “home from home” atmosphere, as it did when it opened.

 Zoete Inval Traveller’s Lodge provides a RE-experience for the budget conscious traveller. REjeuvenate, RElax and REcharge in the REfreshing atmosphere committed to environment conservation and community upliftment. REcreate takes on a new meaning through their application of full-on REcycle, REuse and REduce policies and support of the “REcycle Swop Shops”. Come experience REstoration of your body, soul and spirit in our lush garden, enjoy the fresh garden greens or soak up the sun in the mountain view jacuzzi.

Conveniently located on Main Road, Zoete Inval is the perfect “home base” for travelers who want to explore all that Hermanus has to offer.
