We have visited Knysna a number of times before and this time, our visit must truly be rated as superb. From the warm welcome received by Rochelle and the other ladies, to the beautifully decorated rooms - with a look and feel of "newness" - to the lovely social (braai) organised by Mariska and her team. I can simply say,... More

We stay at the KRC once or twice every year. It's our favourite place in Knysna. We last stayed there a week ago and were surprised that since our last visit in September last year that all the cabins received a "make-over". The linen has been refreshed, the couches and decor has been replaced. We love chalets 7 and 8... More

I have been traveling to South Africa, off and on, since 1995. This past July, I had the pleasure to stay at the Knysna River Club, more importantly, I had the privilege to eat Boogie's Restaurant. Burghard Porwol (the owner) is a gentleman and a passionate connoisseur of fine foods, wine, and hospitality. Mr. Porwol, has without a doubt, served... More

What a nice experience it was. We stayed at the River Club with our kids during the Knysna Oyster Festival. Friendly and efficient staff and the units are of a very high standard. Well done to all! We will be back next year.

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

We were warmly welcomed at reception after a long day on the road and book in was less than 3 minutes!

Second family visit. Stayed for 2 weeks in a perfectly set out accommodation, fully equipped and beautifully serviced. The staff were all warm, friendly & helpful in all aspects during our visit. Location is just perfect for relaxing walks or run by the lagoon, close enough to walk to restaurants & Thesen Island. Sadly, 48 hours into our visit my... More

We found the chalets to be well equipped, beautifully cleaned and well maintained. This is s great central venue to explore not only Knysna but from Storms River to George.
