Great little getaway spot in the heart of Knysna. Well positioned to explore all nearby attractions. Cleaning and reception staff really helpful. Daily cleaning services is a bonus, even over weekends. Unit well furbished with all standard amenities. Property well kept. Peaceful and quiet. Security is visible and enough space for small children to roam around. Wi-Fi was excellent.

Visited with relatives and three kids, who thoroughly enjoyed every day in the pool, jacuzzi, miniature golf, and games room. Peaceful atmosphere with friendly staff. Was my first time, but in-laws' third visit. Seems like it's going to become an annual family event! Definitely worth recommending to locals and foreigners.

This was our first stay in self catering accommodation in Knysna and the River Club was such a treat. We stayed in a unit with a lovely view right in front of the river. The decor is very good, the bed linen was beautiful, and everything was clean, comfortable and spacious. Friendly and helpful reception.
