We stayed in cottage number 2 and what a lovely place to stay. All the comforts of home, effectively your own house to stay in. Usefully the room is... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in late December 2013. Our cottage (number 11) bordered the lawn in front of the hotel, with the pool about 25 metres away. The hotel, which is about a 15 min drive outside Knysna, is in a great location with a fantastic view over the lagoon. Staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms... More

The setting is absolutely fabulous, individual cottages in a well established garden, thankfully separated from the somewhat frenetic overdeveloped Knysna village. The self-catering option is an absolute plus. The only downside was the wi-fi. One pays a nominal amount to a provider - Always On...IF ONLY IT WAS!! By mid-afternoon and early evening, the signal is erratic and often non-existent.

Outstanding facility and wonderful staff! The food is outstanding and the elegant cottages are perfect for a family or couple looking for the best resort in South Africa. The location is excellent and you can do day trip or enjoy Knysna and the Garden Route

Hi, We had booked this hotel through a travel agent looking for family self-catering lodge so that we can enjoy our stay and do things at our pace. the most important thing for us was to use the dishwasher and washing machine as we have travelled far and would not want carry lots of clothes in luggage. The stay was... More

We were upgraded to a Deluxe cottage, it was wonderful. A lovely bedroom with two sunny balconies. The view of the lagoon was gorgeous from there and also from the dining terrace. Breakfast was excellent. An ideal place for complete relaxation.

Always wanted to stay here as it's set in such beautiful grounds. Stayed in one of the lagoon cottages which was very well appointed and clean. We had our best night's sleep in ages. Dined in the Bell pub and we both had one of the best Boboties ever. The Staff are charming and helpful.
