We tried this place out after doing some googling, and found that it exceeded our expectations. For the amount of money they charge, the rooms are huge (we got a double storey apartment, with 2 x bathrooms + lounge + kitchen etc).
They don't have a lot of rooms, so you don't have to contend with hordes of people. The place is small enough, and the staff friendly enough for it to be "comfortable" and feel like a home away from home.
There's not much in the sense of facilities in the hotel itself, but there's no need as Knysna has tons of things to do, and you do after all go on holiday to places like Knysna to see the area, and not spend all day in the hotel.
They don't have cartoon network or Disney on their TV entertainment system which to me is a big plus, as the kids don't want to spend the whole day in front of the tv.
