The Fairy Knowe hotel is one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed at. Our on-suite room on the ground floor had a patio that was directly at the river - what a view! There is so much to do at the Fairy Knowe hotel, whether taking a canoe or paddle boat down to the lakes or up to the waterfall, or going for a hike through the forest, swimming in the river or pool, playing tennis or even table tennis, there is something for everyone!
The breakfasts were excellent - a buffet including bacon, eggs, flapjacks, doughnuts, yoghurts, serials and more - ensured that we were well fed and watered.
The place is really something for the whole family and there is so much to do that I greatly regret staying only two nights - next time will be at least a week!
You're also just 5 minutes away from the Wilderness centre, where there are great restaurants, though the Fairy Knowe hotel does include a restaurant and a bar. The beautiful town of Knysna is also just a short drive away.
The Fairy Knowe hotel may look a bit old, but it is certainly not run-down - on the contrary, this merely adds to its charm. It is very well looked after, with even the paddle-boats and canoes available to the guests cleaned every morning.
The staff were all very friendly, helpful and efficient - our room was tidied, our bed was made and soap and towels were replaced while we were out. Thanks especially to Jeremy (the manager), who went out of his way to make our stay so great!
