“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Simola has the most commanding view over the Knysna area one could ever imagine. The staff are very well trained, attentive yet discreet and remember names and people. The food is well presented and plentiful. Go on, spoil yourselves!

“GOOD FOOD, STUNNING VIEWS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

The Orchid Room at the hotel is an elegant, yet reasonably priced restaurant that offers a different day time experience to evenings. Perched high up, looking down onto the immaculate golf course and Knysna below, the views are superb. If you book for dinner, be sure to come early and enjoy a drink while watching the sun go down. The lunch a dinner menu is fairly small but we have always had good meals there. They also have a sushi bar. Sunday brunch is very popular. We eat here regularly as it is a cut above the rest, yet makes for an easy, un-fussy evening out.

“Special lunch at Simola”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Today we had a special lunch for a 60th birthday. The setting was beautiful as was the food. The really nice thing about Simola is that the napery and cutlery is always of such a high quality. The set menu lunch with two choices for each course was really good and the service was excellent .
The staff are friendly and efficient. Highly rommended.
