We loved our accommodation, and the property was lovely but it's the helpful staff that really made this great! We ordered dinner and had it delivered to our room instead. They took our orders before the kitchen was even open and the reception staff were fantastic.

Enjoyed everything about this hotel and would have rated 5 except for the traffic noise which was noticable at the rear of our accomodation. It is possible that other rooms would not be affected. All staff were friendly and helpful and food was really outstanding. Would stay again if we returned. Hopefully the weather will be better then and would... More

Very pleasant and relaxing stay. Great layout - rooms spread out through the grounds. Lots of grass for children to run around on and the pools were good (no paddling pool - minimum depth 1m). The staff were really good - very friendly and helpful. Particular thanks to Sheryl at the front desk who gave us some great recommendations on... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. We played boules by the pool, swam in our pool, walked around the beautiful grounds and enjoyed a wonderful dinner in the dining room. The breakfast buffet was lovely with good pastries!

The staff at Knysna Hollow are almost too good to be true. Friendly, professional, kind and really interested in the well being of the customer. This was only my second stay at the hotel and I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Knysna. Major plus for me is the running path along the lagoon less than 500m from the hotel.

This was a great place for several reasons. The grounds were beautiful, the rooms comfortable and spacious and the dining room a delight. It was a shame that the weather was not as nice as it could have been, to take advantage of the swimming pool right outside our room. The food was fantastic and presented expertly. We were also...

The perfect place from which to explore the surrounding attractions. Brilliant staff large en suite rooms alongside the pool surrounded by lush grass. Good breakfast selection but no satellite television though and small tv in rooms. Large grounds with ample parking.

The rooms are all set around pools - of which there are three. The service from the staff was good - breakfast and dinner were good. The rooms are all in single storey blocks with thatched roofs all very picturesque
