The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The staff are friendly and helpful and the location is great, 5 minutes from central Knysna. This is the umpteenth time we have stayed there and we have never been disappointed, the times when something went wrong the management got it fixed very quickly. The food is good. Breakfast is full English...

We have just returned from a two night stay at Knysna Hollow, after staying at the Cape Town Hollow we were excited to stay here. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the grounds were beautiful. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was lovely! Unfortunately, we feel our experience was let down by the cleanliness...

This estate is in a quiet area of the town but still accessible to anyone. We were assigned huts with thatched roofs which was interesting and an unusual experience. Our hut had a living room and a large bathroom with two sinks and french doors to our room and living room. We enjoyed the space; however, I was a bit...

stayed over for 2 nights, rooms are really great, spacious and modern, however, the smell of the room personally is a bit too earthy, due to the fact that the fan is on when you get there, once switched off the room smells a bit better but as soon as you leave the morning for your usual walk into town,...

We stayed for two nights in this charming hotel situated outside Knysna but in walking distance of the town and the seafront. The rooms were large and spotlessly clean and standards of service were excellent throughout the hotel. Food was excellent.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Riviera tour of South Africa. The bungalow style rooms were spacious and well appointed. The high ceilings were a nice feature that added style to the rooms.

The thatched family cottage for 4 was beautiful in its setting and its furnishing, particularly the log fire on the one cold night we had. This was the 4th stop of 5 on our CapeTown to Eastern Cape tour and admittedly the expectations set by the other legs of the trip were sky hight, but we couldn't help feeling it...
