“Excellent value for money accommodation in Knysna”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

I have repeated this review as there seem to be two Tripadvisor entries for the apartments at Knysna Quays. I am sure they both refer to the same rental apartments.
Stayed for 2 nights with friends in a two bed roomed apartment which has everything you could possibly need to make your visit comfortable. We had been travelling for 11 days through the country with many one night stopovers so we had loads of washing to do and the washing machine and tumble drier worked overtime!
We had stayed before with other friends so knew it would be the perfect place to stay for our ex South African friend now living in Australia. He loves boats and yachts and is a real water man! So our position overlooking the waterways was perfect.
Our only complaint we had was when the people below us made a fire for their braai in their big open braai. We were smoked off our balcony and had to keep the doors closed to avoid all the smoke.Then afterwards we had to open all doors to get rid of the smoky smell in the apartment. The whole event seemed to take forever as they first made a huge log fire and then added briquettes and then they only started braai-ing the meat after a long, long time.
Luckily it was September and still chilly so it wasn't too much of a problem to keep the doors closed but in midsummer it could be a horrible experience as the smoke literally comes straight up from below. There should only be closed Weber braais allowed or built in barbecues with chimneys to avoid this.
If you want to view the pics they are on the other review - "Apartments at Knysna Quays".

We are still very impressed with the apartment, we could not believe that it had a washing machine and a dryer - we have never ever stayed in an apartment that had these amenities. It is also quite spacious and secure. The location is superb with lots of restaurants within walking distance. The only problem we had was the braai stand it is rusted. An investment in a new one would go a long way in keeping customers happy.

Just got back from a hassle free annual u13 cricket tour! we stayed at the Knysna Quays - it was so central the matches were in and around Plett and Knysna. The complex has all you need with shops and restuarants in walking distance! will definitly book again. We booked a 3 room unit and found it very affordable. would reccomend to other parent groups for next year! Many thanks

Enjoyed our weekend. Accomodation has everything that you require to have an organized stay. The quay is so peaceful, and it has all the shops and restaurants only a few metres away -no need to drive anywhere. Perfect!!

Room Tip: if you a couple room 6 -south Quay is just for you.

I've stayed at the Knysna Quays on a few occasions. For me its great - peaceful but yet there's activity. I can have a couple of glass of wine and don't have to worry about driving. Plus everything I would like to eat or drink is right on the door step. You can get there and then really kick back and relax.

We love Knysna and we also love staying at the Quays. This is the third time we have stayed at these apartments and this one was just as good as ever. Very secure and well stocked apartment with good views.

Room Tip: All apartments overlook the waterway as far as I am aware
