Izborsk Hotel

Hotel in Stary Izborsk

This pretty complex ticks all the twee boxes: it's romantic and quaint with lace curtains and floral wallpaper. The attached craft shop sells charming hand-stitched teddies and cute gifts, and the restaurant cooks with locally sourced ingredients. You'll find it at the entrance to the village from the main road.

It also has a banya (R1200 for one hour) and bicycle hire (R150 per hour).
