What better way to enjoy Knysna than a stay on an island, located not only in the heart of the Knysna Lagoon, but also in a Blue Flag Marina in the very centre of Knysna? Set within the remodelled timber frame of the old Knysna boatbuilding shed, the hotel rooms take one's breath away with their industrial refurbishment and design. This fresh, smart-casual approach is far from the ordinary, and caters well to every desire. Multiple room options are presented in various styles: Exclusive Lagoon Suites Luxury Loft Suites Luxury Units with Self-catering Facilities

The Lofts is the best spot in Knysna, with beautiful views of the lagoon, next to the best restaurant, Ile de Pain, and walking distance to other nice restaurants. The room was clean, neat, luxurious and comfortable. Friendly staff and it’s good value for money. We’ll stay there again!

We had a ladies lunch here. It was lovely. Very attentive staff and good food nicely presented. There is a choice of seating - on the deck with a lagoon view or indoors with comfortable floppy couches. A lovely afternoon. Very relaxed and peaceful.

We enjoyed two nights at The Lofts in a stylish self catering apartment. I can only compliment Carla and her team for their very friendly and professional service. We will be back with our next visit to the Garden Route. Perfect location.
