We stayed at Knysna River Club for 3 nights during the Oyster Festival in July. The accommodation was comfortable and serviced daily. I loved the location, as it is very central and close to the lagoon. The cottages are quite close to one another and my feeling was that it should be graded as 3 star and not 4 star.... More
