Beautifully situated with lovely views, very peaceful, a golfers paradise.
However if you in the Top Ten holiday exchange units there is no swimming pool nearby and we did not see any facilities for children eg table tennis, play areas.

Yes, the Top 10 exchange units are located within the residential part of the estate but access is available to the hotel indoor and outdoor heated pool areas only 500 meters away, also we do have a children's designated play area at the hotel ..........

So glad you got value from your exchange and hopefully we will see you return once again to Simola,

Thank you for your time in providing valuable feedback

I stayed at Simola Hotel with my husband and three young kids for a few days, just short of a week. We thoroughly enjoyed it! We had a beautiful, comfortable and big apartment with all the perks of a 5-star hotel. We normally stay in family hotel suites, I wouldnt bother trying that again as our kids get tired of having only a room to roam around and not much more. And let's face it, staying in a serviced apartment outside of a hotel isnt much fun! Here our kids were relaxed, loved having a big kitchen and lounge area, as well as their own 'seperate quarters', a large veranda with an easy to operate undercover gas braai/grill (making braaiing marshmallows effortless), stunning views and room service!!! Service is fast, the staff very helpful and instantly attends to any need. They do not waste any time.. Breakfast was great since we are halaal and the hotel makes every effort to accommodate. The selection is perfect. Once again, the glorious views right over Knysna to the Knysna heads were magical every morning. I would rate the hotel 5 stars based on our stay, but comparatively to international standards, i would say that the hotel should be rated a 4-star hotel as its by now much older than your typical 5 star hotels. We will most certainly return here! It was a perfect stay!

Dear Kauthar_Allie

Thank you for the comprehensive feedback and commentary on your stay with us at Simola, all of which are most appreciated and will be shared with the team and department heads.

We are very happy to hear that your Halaal needs were met and exceeded as this sometimes does come with challenges.

We are in the planning stages of implementing certain upgrade protocols but as with all hotel's timing is of the essence and we will keep the market and our clients informed of the progress once we begin in the near future.

Kindest Regards

Some times the weather can change in an instant in this region and we understand it can put a damper on the best-laid plans. I assume you are referring to the parking area in front of Suites when you indicate street noise which when very active can have some intermittent noise levels.

Thank you for staying with us and we hopefully get to see you once again in the near future.


Kindest Regards
