We stayed in the Turbine Hotel during our trip to Knysna during July 2013.
Coming from the far more luxurious Delaire Graff, this seemed a bit pale in comparison.
While the concept is unique and they have tried to create an offbeat themed hotel, the service is a bit of a letdown.
The rooms are quite small, with poorly designed ventilation for the bathrooms.
Recommended for people wanting to do some offbeat travel, but not for people looking for a luxurious hotel.
