This was the cheapest accommodation of our trip to SA and was the most cramped. The semi detached chalets are quite small but adequate and have a balcony with stunning views. This was the only place where we were bothered by mosquito on our trip, but think that would be a problem anywhere in Knysna at this time of the year. There is no wi-fi but we were told that when booking. Not bad location and easy to find, cheap and cheerful would be how I would sum this place up.

It is a beautiful hotel with a very nice outdoor seating area and a great BBQ area, the rooms are also nice and cozy and great hosts. One should go to storms river national park for a full day which is not very far from the hotel (about 7 KMs)

Room Tip: Take a room on the first floor

The rooms are very cold and a very small wall mounted heater does the injustice for the cold night in Knysna. We were also not impressed given what we saw on the Internet. We had to book an alternative accomodation in order to enjoy our stay. I would definitely not recommend this lodge to anyone.

We had a nice stay. It was clean and cosy. The only thing was we stayed there for three night in winter, but it was really cold at night even we had three bedding sheets. There is only a small heater which is not enough for the size of the room. But friendly staff and we love the jacuzzi.
