When I eventually arrived at 18-30 the Town of Knysna experienced ones again a general power outage. This was not unusual as the same happened before and was announced as... More

A very fine hotel even if it is a few kilometres from Knysna centre. Perhaps a hotel shuttle might be considered for guests to visit the waterfront in Knysna - the core area for cafes, shopping and restaurants.

Overall, we had a good experience here and would go back. It is nicely situated out of town but it is within walking distance. We had an excellent room with plenty of space and a sunny balcony. The pool is excellent. The restaurant serves good food at a reasonable price and the staff were friendly. While some of our group... More

I have travelled all around the world and never received as horrible service as I received from the front desk agent named Esther. I was appalled at how I was treated from her and what a bad experience she gave me at the hotel. The hotel cleanliness and quality was great but it's amazing at how one person can ruin... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of a tour of South Africa arranged by Saga. Travelling in a group means our experience - particularly of meals - may not be the same as individual travellers. This modern, newish hotel is situated a little bit outside Knysna, but is situated on inlets to the lagoon. It is also known as... More

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
