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.

Nice surrounding and actually a good accommodation.... but.... The rooms were in a bad condition. Beds weren't made, the bathrooms not cleaned (for days!) and hair and toenails on the floor, very unhygienic... the staff needed 3 (!) attempts to clean the rooms properly. Instead of saying sorry I heard from the hotel manager: You must understand, we had too... More

We were surprised by the space and Equipment offered. The Bungalows are very well equipped, with kitchen utensils, even a barbeque. Spent two nights there and truly enjoyed sitting outside, listening to the birds in the trees and doing nothing. Central location to explore around Knysna - a car is not compulsory, however definitively an advantage.
