Our room was a bit small, but clean and tidy. We had nice music of little fogs in the evening, and birds in the morning - awesome! There was a big bath and shower in the room, but only big enough for one person to move in.

This is a high quality hotel. Set in beautiful grounds alongside the inner reaches of the Knysna inlet the modern buildings blend well into the surroundings. The accommodation was spacious, well equipped and well serviced. The public areas were capacious, superbly laid out and very comfortable, the food was varied, delicious and well presented and the staff welcoming, courteous and... More

Luckily the hotel was not full so made our stay great. We were booked into a suite consisting of a kitchenette area ,lounge area with huge flat screen,bedroom again with large flat... More

Probably the best hotel review i got from my guests (42 pax), this May, it is a quite & elegant place to stay on the garden route. For exclusivity, prefer to stay in a villa overlooking the canal. Nicely furnished rooms and very good & courteous staff.

The hotel is out of town which offers more quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Situated close to Leisure Isle. Within walling distance to Bouson's pub which is also well worth a visit. Beautiful and spacious rooms. Staff friendly and helpful. Big tv in room

We visited as two families and were pleased to find that we had very spacious suites which comfortably accommodated us all. The receptionist was really helpful. The hotel was very quiet when we stayed but looked well set up for busier times.

We stayed in a 1st floor room with balcony overlooking the gardens - beautifully peaceful! The room was spacious and comfortable, with small kitchenette area. The only thing we thought was strange was the shower door that would not open fully as it knocked against the toilet bowl - strange! - and meant getting into/out of the shower was a... More

Hotel is situated on an estuary and you can enjoy nice walks in the grounds. Rooms are large and spacious with fully fitted kitchen, fridge and freezer.
