It's a three star hotel and it pushes the boundaries. It's pretty close to being 4 star. A few more luxuries and it would be up there. But with the luxuries there would be associated costs. So it's currently value for money. I liked it for its courteous and professional staff, it's cleanliness, it's proficiency, it's proximity to an area... More

The rooms are thatched and as such there is a thatched aroma in the rooms which is an assault on the nose initially but after about an hour you get used to it. The room is large with comfortable chairs. A nice touch is each room number is on a painted stone, each depicting a different local bird. There are... More

Very pleasant stay and friendly, accommodating staff in beautiful landscaped setting. Multiple menu choices. Those chosen were very good. A very nice place to relax and spend the night. Would definitely recommend this facility.

Nice larger rooms, very good restaurant, very friendly staff. The hotel and rooms were clean, the bathroom needed a little tlc, but nothing major. The ground are lovely and well kept, only three km from Knysna itself. We were made to feel very welcome. Would book again

This was a very picturesque hotel with chalet's grouped around the pool area. Well appointed main lodge with a nice restaurant. Being winter the rooms were quite cold and the electric room heaters were not adequate, especially so when the rotating power cuts occurred. Only major complaint was that the wine costs were much more expensive than other hotels in... More

The fireplaces in the room were fantastic and the staff even came to start our fire when we were unable to get it going one evening! Room service was also very accommodating and the breakfast were yummy.

We were here for two nights with a family of five. The pools in between the cottages were nice and clean, the staff is friendly. It was a pitty the hotel is so far from Knysna, impossible to walk to a restaurant, so really need a car with you. Good extra heating in the cottage

We stayed at the Knysna Hollows while attending some fun events of the Oyster Festival. Cosy rooms with a fireplace, friendly professional staff, and some a hoely feeling. Its definitely the place to stay just to let down your hair!

This property reminded me of some of my favorite California Resorts & Classic Retreats (like the 4 Seasons in Santa Barbara, La Quinta in Palm Springs or La Costa in Carlsbad)... but in a lovely town of lakes, hills, gardens and beaches on the coast of South Africa! Knysna Hollow Country Estates had charming bungalows, beautiful scenery and AMAZING service!... More
