Most enjoyable stay at the KRC. Wonderful service and a very peaceful and tranquil setting. The locality on the lagoon and the view is fantastic! Can not wait for our next visit to this lovely establishment.

The team here are very friendly and the accommodation clean and practical. However, it felt very 70s Germany! Boys enjoyed taking canoe out and we enjoyed exploring Thesen Islands. Good facilities for self catering and comfortable beds. We enjoyed using the bbq, and would like to have had a chance to explore local area on bikes.

Clever photography led me to believe the property was a lot bigger. Garden view, in my opinion, is rather view of the cottage in front of you, and lagoon view is not worth it. Our entire stay the wifi was not working (this was something I specifically looked for when booking). The unit itself was lovely and very spacious, we... More

It was our second visit here. Great base from which to explore the Garden Route. The resort is well managed and accommodation is neat and comfortable. Units are serviced daily. Being school holidays, here is where things could have been better. I made a point of looking and found that there was no toilet paper in the games room in... More

The units are very comfortable indeed and well cleaned. You can pretty much walk to most places in Knysna from there if you don't mind a bit of a walk and who would when it's next to the fabulously beautiful Knysna Lagoon. Thesens, Waterfront, town centre, Mitchell's Brewery, Loerie Park all walkable. We've stayed here before and will certainly do... More

We had a 1 room unit with a sleeper couch in the lounge area. This works well for couple or families with very young children. Lovely units, very well equipped kitchen for self catering. The property is on the lagoon so you can walk down to the promenade and go for some exercise and fresh air. Lovely spot to watch... More
