Excellent SC it used to be better years before as you had a little kitchenette with a 2 plates cocking facility. If you want to use the braai its lovely if you can serve a sidedish. If you want to do it yourself you will not ask the kitchen even if you can and will cook for you! Sometimes you... More

We enjoyed our stay, the chalet was beautiful and well equipped and clean. The staff was so friendly and helpful (especially manager Maurita) Very good breakfasts and stunning surroundings. Peaceful and tranquil and within short driving distance of all the surrounding other outings we wanted to see. Thank you for making us feel so welcome1!

We arrived and we were greeted by a lovely... More

I don't know why, but I was quite surprised (in a good way) at how lovely this place was. It can be rare to find a place that gets most things right. From the first minute I was set at ease by the very friendly Maurita who greeted us in such a warm way. The staff were all helpful (even... More

Although there was a road construction this place seemed to be a little get away from the tourist city Knysna. Cottage was very spacious, romantic decoration and personalised, well kept gardens, clean, all thought after...take breakfast in your lodge or garden terrasse as breakfast room is really boring. Pool is nice, yet hardly used, which is great.

The attention to detail in the room as well as the attention to detail at breakfast was just amazing. It was great to stay in a place where you can have your... More

We totally enjoyed our two days at Tonquani Lodge & Spa. The wooden chalet gives you a cosy feel, but maybe for some the chalet with the furniture is a little bit oldy worldy, but we liked it. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The massages we had booked (summer special - back, shoulder and feet) was one of... More
