Very spacious rooms set in a large landscaped gardens with indigenous trees and plants next to the Lagoon. Enough space to go for a walk or jog of several kilometres. The Villas with their own kitchen are well worth the extra money especially if you are bringing the family but the restaurant is superb and the Staff super friendly and... More

This hotel is very clean and spacious with a lovely pool area and very large dining area. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was nothing special and very ordinary. The rooms were nice and very clean with lovely bathrooms and mine had a patio overlooking the pool area.

The room was clean and very comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and went the extra mile. The location is very good. Just a pity your trees have grown so tall so you cant see the beautiful view of the Heads and the Lagoon. Would recommend it to anyone

All great except your breakfast staff / waitresses looked like they did not want to be there. Even getting a cup of coffee was like pulling teeth. Less hospitable than usual.Very grumpy,no smiles, nada

Arrived here as part of a larger group. Thrilled with the beautifully furnished and decorated room/apartment complete with sitting and dinning area and kitchen. Large balcony out to the grounds and another towards the pool area. The interior of the hotel with its long indoor planted area with water features is lovely. Outside the grounds of the hotel are interesting... More

Although I prefer small lodges and guest houses I liked this hotel a lot. It doesn't have the family kind of atmosphere that many lodges offer but therefore they have very spacious and modern rooms, a great pool area and the breakfast is also pretty good. Most of all I like the friendly staff though. Hopefully I'll get the chance... More

Very luxurious and such a great hotel. Staff are friendly and everything is in such pristine condition. The decor and general look & feel of this hotel rival many top hotels I've stayed in. Centrally located to all the spots you would want to visit in-and-around Knysna.
