My wife ran the Knysna Forest Half Marathon, so the location is ideal. It's a couple of blocks away from the pick-up point so one doesn't have to navigate the traffic in the morning. The bedroom and bathroom were fantastic.

We stay here once a year during the Knysna marathon and always have a wonderful time here. The rooms are comfortable and is exactly what we need. The management and staff always seem to want to go the extra mile to ensure you comfortable and nothing appears to be a problem for them.

The staff in this hotel were very efficient helpful and friendly. The management were very helpful in organising a day out by taxi to an elephant sanctuary and then on to a shopping complex once we needed to move on. The taxi driver was an angel helping us with every aspect of the day. A great place to stay, highly... More

This is a very good hotel with huge fantastic rooms. The meals are excellent and very well presented. It has a very good setting as well as good service from the staff. You do however need a car as it is far away from the shops in the town center.

We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to a waterside villa. Very comfortable and enough for a family of 4. We had hot water problems which were solved and an 8am power cut which was not the hotels fault. The staff talked round wonderfully to ameliorate the problem of breakfast in the dark.

a modern new hotel with clean and spacious rooms. Friendly staff. Dinners and buffet breakfasts with good and large variety of courses. Great beds. I do not remember if it has free Wifi, however, to be recommended.
