Even though our local guide had more or less given us an idea of this hotel I can say I had never expected rooms or I would rather call them fully furnished modern apartments of this size.We had a wonderful staying there.

The hotel is very modern and smart. The welcome talk set the scene for an enjoyable stay. One is a bit overwhelmed by the size of the room - see photos. One is cannot make full use of the space - one still rattles inside even when having a game of Bridge with friends in the lounge. There is air... More

We enjoyed our stay at The Moorings as part of our Saga tour to South Africa. The hotel was excellent, the staff were helpful, the food was excellent. We did however visit during winter for South Africa and unfortunately our hotel room was cold and also in the restaurant unless you were able to sit near a coal fired burner.

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.
