Located on Thesen Island on the edge of the Knysna Lagoon, the Turbine is a fascinating, insight into how to give a power station a complete, maverick, boutique make-over. The luxury and attention to detail are there but these are entwined around huge gaily painted 1700kw alternators, huge wood furnaces and throughout the hotel are the original mechanical and electrical switching boards. The staff were always eager to please and so friendly, nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble....truly a must-stay venue!
