My Wife and I stayed there for our honeymoon in March 2015. Service was outstanding, friendly and efficient staff and nothing was too much trouble. The picnic hamper we ordered was outstanding and I would advise anyone to find a quiet stretch of beach and enjoy it.

We thought Tonquani was a really good place to stay. We were surprised when we got into our 'room' to find that it was a suite!

We had such a wonderful two night stay at Tonquani Lodge, in such beautiful surroundings. We were treated so well and the staff bent over backwards to satisfy our every need. A wonderful spa treatment topped off our excellent stay. Highly recommend.

Our stay was very pleasant...we had a great time in Knysna. It was our first time visiting the Garden Route, non-regrettable. It is worth to come back. The food was good, the staff was very friendly. The atmosphere, very thrilling.. my children enjoyed the uncapped wifi. My baby was thrilled

A little bit outside but as all will have a car no problem. Clean rooms, good breakfeast. Value for money is OK. Knysna was full, so Food in Restaurants without Reservation can be problematic, so reserve before if you know where to go.

Really nice and cozy place. Was there with my wife and we had a great time. It was a private lodge with a porch outside and fireplace inside. Good breakfest. The last night they even made us a bbk. Lovely people.

What a charming place! Professionalism of a big hotel with the character of a little bnb. Highly recommended due to the beautiful spacious rooms, quiet and peaceful atmosphere and, above all, indispensible staff. We will definitely return! No wifi.

We had our honeymoon there over December. It was perfect in every way possible! The staff were extremely polite, helpful and courteous. The lodge is absolutely exquisite! Great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature, and close enough to the festivities of Knysna
